As part of our Christmas celebrations all the staff and pupils attended the Christingle service at St Barnabas Church. Families were invited along so they could share this with their children. It was a wonderful chance to come together as a community.
The Christmas Fayre, organised by the Friends of Bournmoor, was very well attended and raised a total of £362.99.
Many thanks to the Friends for all their hard work and also to families for your continued support and making this such a great event.
Pupils enjoyed dressing up for Children in Need 2014 – this national event was very well supported. Many thanks for the all the donations and our total stands at £220.

The first class assembly of this academic year was presented by pupils in Mrs Park’s class. We found out about all the work they had completed this term around the theme of rocks. The title of their assembly was ‘Rocks Rock!’ and after watching their assembly we have to agree!

Each year at Houghton Church there is a display of nativity scenes from around the world known as the ‘Festival of Cribs’.
This year we have been invited to add our very own crib which pupils designed and made. The display is open to the public each day between 10am and 4pm at Houghton Church (next to the Co-op) from 18th to 30th November.
The pupils who made the Bournmoor Primary School crib went to see their work in the church.
Mrs Lees has been visiting Ghana for a few years to help promote reading in schools in the north.
The children enjoyed seeing what school life is like in Sirigu Schools and finding out how children there are taught to read.

Parents/carers were invited along to a workshop led by Mrs Parks focusing on maths. The aim of this session was to show the methods used to teach children mathematical concepts (eg addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).
The way maths is taught in school has changed over the years and the aim was to provide help to support pupils with homework tasks. All the guidance referred to can be found in ‘Our Curriculum‘ section of our website.
On 26th September Bournmoor Primary School was 40 years old. Staff and pupils celebrated this special event together with a range of activities.
