Year 1 children were very lucky to get a visit from a local vet, Eman and her adorable cat, Vera. The children asked Eman questions about being a vet. She taught the children how to care for a pet and that cats need food and water to survive. The children and teachers were amazed to find out that cats only drink milk when they are babies but should not drink milk when they are adults.

All children had great fun petting Vera and didn’t want her to leave.

Many thanks to our vet, Eman and her cat, Vera for taking the time to visit us and helping us enrich the teaching and learning in Year 1.

Year 2 Job Fair

It may have been a short week, but the Year 2 Job Fair certainly kept Year 2 children and teachers busy.

The children turned up looking fantastically smart in their business clothes and the day got off to a quick start.

In the morning session, the children visited 5 classrooms where each teacher tried to convince them to try out a new job choice. The children learned a little bit about being a banker, an architect, a fashion designer, a doctor and a chef.

After playtime, the children returned to their classroom and chose to try out some activities related to 3 of the 5 jobs they had learned about in the morning. The doctors gave injections and wrote prescriptions, the fashion designers produced fabulous skirt and shirt designs, the architects designed a range of flats, schools and houses; the bankers tried out their money and calculator skills; the chefs were busy measuring and weighing their foods.

It was a pleasure for the parents to pop in at the end of the day to see their child and share in their stories of the day’s events.

We can’t believe it’s half term already!

It is hard to believe that it is the last day before the first half term holiday today. Time really does fly when you are having fun. It has been an action-packed half term and your children have worked incredibly hard; I am certain they will enjoy their well deserved break – as will the teachers!

From all of us at BSB Infant School, we wish you all a happy, safe and relaxing half term! It has been lovely getting to know you all over the past eight weeks and we look forward to continuing our partnership for the rest of the year and beyond!

Please note, the children return back to school on 5th November.

Thank you for all your support this half term.

With my best wishes,
