A Scorching Week 11 of Homeschooling!
Hello to all of our hardworking Bosbury children and parents who continue to remain at home while working extremely hard on the weekly tasks which teachers are continuing to set for each class. Can you believe it's been eleven weeks since this new way of life started? That's nearly double the length of the summer holidays!
Below is but a small selection of the many exciting activities which our Year 2, 3, 4 and 5 pupils as well as some of our Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children have been getting up to during the warmest week so far of this highly unusual year.
What an incredible range of activities! Impressive painting, great handwriting and spelling practice, tense games of Jenga, locating countries around the globe, yummy raspberry-picking and mangetout-growing, celebrating lovely birthdays, coin work on the laptop while chilling out with a lolly, catching monster-sized fish, cuddles with pampered pets, fetching lockdown haircuts, walks with grandparents and of course making our funny veggie-faces for this week's Bosbury lockdown photo competition!
Many more pictures can be found in the Gallery section of the website HERE, and we are amazed to say that since the lockdown period started back in March, we have received nearly a staggering 1,200 photos showing what all our lovely pupils have been getting up to at home - and these are just the pictures which have been posted on the school's Twitter page; not necessarily all the photos which have been sent to individual teachers! This is a remarkable effort and a true testament to all the hard work which our families have been continuing to do with their children during these very different and challenging times. Well done everyone and a huge thank you from all of the team at Bosbury School. Some of our lockdown pictures even made it into The Hereford Times this week - take a look by clicking on the picture of the article on their website below! Do you recognise the very smiley young lady from Class 1 below who we believe also tried doing some reading in a rather unusual place in the house recently...?
We would also like to extend a very special Bosbury well done to this incredibly brave young man also from Class 1 shown with his mum below who recently underwent a big operation at Birmingham Children's Hospital. We are thrilled that Isaac and mum are looking so happy and that he even had time to go Gruffalo-hunting while at the hospital and received a special certificate! Well done Isaac and mum and we hope to see you back at school soon having made a full recovery.
Oh, and in case you're wondering about the very technical and detailed-looking X-ray image shown below, it was from an MRI scan which was performed a month before the operation so that the doctors knew exactly what they needed to do to help Isaac feel better. Yes, that's what the inside of Isaac looks like! Isn't the human body a fascinating thing?
Here is the latest update from our Headteacher Miss Spence as we look forward to welcoming some new children back to school next week in our bubbles, along with the brilliant news from the government this week that it is now hoped that all children will be able to finally return to school on 3rd September. Exciting and very interesting times lie ahead!

We teased it last week, but we are now thrilled to be able to announce that we are offering to welcome back all of our pupils for a very special two-hour outdoor disco and multi-skills event for each class during the final week of the school year!
We hope that the hour-long multi-skiils activity, very similar to the one which was held during Grounds Day last year, will go some way in making up for the loss of Sports Day this year (don't worry, Sports Day 2021 will be our best ever!), and we are incredibly excited to be able to offer this opportunity for all of our lovely pupils to see each other again before the summer holidays and everyone returning back to school in September.
Please see below for dates and times for each class' fun day, and could we also request that children bring a drink and a snack which they are able to open themselves, wear comfortable clothes and shoes with a sun hat and sun cream if the weather is as warm as it has been this week (remember that we cannot apply sun cream at school), and please ensure that children who require medical items such as inhalers or epi-pens bring them into school as well.
Please also continue to park in the village and queue on the path up the school drive, remembering to maintain social distancing ready for staff to welcome your children in through the Key Stage 2 playground gate. Could we also ask that parents are as prompt as possible in collecting children at the end of their day. Thank you for your co-operation in helping to keep our school community safe, and we cannot wait to see as many of our lovely pupils as possible again after such a long wait!
