  • Year 3 children will have a Christmas party in the last week of term. At the party the children will give a present to a secret friend. You will get letters regarding this next week.
  • Well done to all the children in Year 3 who remember to bring fruit and vegetables to school for snack on ‘Fruity Friday’.
  • Please remember that we have a no nut policy at BHS due to some children having severe allergies. This includes peanut butter sandwiches and nuts in cookies or cakes.
  • Now the weather is turning cooler please be aware that it often gets a lot warmer throughout the day. Therefore please dress your child in layers that can be removed as necessary.
