Welcome to our School Events Page – dates of events at the foot of the page.
For term dates please see here
We will endeavour to update this page regularly so that everyone is aware of the many and varied events we hold throughout the academic year for our children, parents and the wider community.
Some events happen every year such as School discos, parent evenings, sports day, Christmas and end of year productions, Christmas and Summer Fairs, whereas others, are ‘one off events’.
The Bellbird Choir
entertained an audience of parents and friends to Christmas Carols and Songs.
Soloists performed with confidence and enthusiasm.
A great evening was had by all.
The whole school enjoyed an afternoon of Opera with the English Pocket Opera Company.
Harvest Festival 2015
Family Learning run parent courses at our school during term time on Tuesday mornings.
This term it has been on English.
7 of our Mums passed Level 1 English City and Guilds this term! The photo shows them all with their certificates – they have worked very hard.
The courses are free with free refreshments and a free crèche.
International Old Persons Day
Thursday 1st October 2015 was International Old Persons Day and our Year 6 children went to meet and talk with our older generation at Orchard House here in Sawston. One of the older people said, ‘I had a lovely time, especially meeting the children- they were full of joy and excitement and it was a pleasure to celebrate with them.’
We are committed to ensuring the safety of all of our children. FABS agreed to fund cycle helmets for every child at The Bellbird. Recently the Co Headteachers, Mrs Corrall and Mrs Darrell, gave every one of our 56 Reception children a cycle helmet in our distinctive Bellbird blue. The children were absolutely thrilled and proud as our photo shows!
Over the summer holidays, Dr. Wreghitt, one of our Governors, and Fabian, his grandson and pupil at our school built a wonderful Bug Hotel for all of our children to use and enjoy.
Sponsors of the project were:
Tony Negus, Builder
Travis Perkins, Stapleford
London Brick Company
Welch’s Transport, Whittlesford
There is to be a Flower Festival at St Mary’s Church and our children in Swifts Class have created a beautiful paper flower display to exhibit.
The colours are all found in our school Bellbird painting. We think the children have done a wonderful job!
Raptor Centre Visit to The Bellbird
We welcomed the Raptor Centre staff and birds to our school, the very first day of the Summer Term 2015.
