Please could you make sure your Yr 3/4 child has their swim kit in school on Thursday 20th July. We will be have plenty of fun in the pool to round of an excellent year! Due to transition day, Year 5 will be swimming on Monday 17th of July. Apologies for the last minute changes. We have tried to move things around so that no class misses out.

Community Spirit

BERKELEY PRIMARY loved waving off the amazing cyclists last week for #BSQ2BSQ!  It made it all so real for them after their week of sponsored cycling, where they collectively cycled 340 miles to help raise money and awareness for 3 charities close to the hearts of many in our community, Meningitis Now, CJD and Sue Ryder.

Many of the cyclists and the organisers of #BSQ2BSQ  are coming to school this Monday for a special assembly to share their success story and help our children to further understand the impact they have had on this phenomenal community event.

Thank you all for your support and participation in our part towards this event with Nightrider and On ‘ya Bike week. You have all helped to raise a huge amount for these charities and the children have loved being a part of this incredible community venture! What a wonderful town Berkeley is! These children are the future of Berkeley and they will never forget how much they’ve achieved over the last few weeks!

Well done to everyone involved! 😀

The Wilderness presentation






Year 4 would love you to join them on Wednesday 19th July at 2pm in the school hall to tell you all about their adventures in the Wilderness this week! If you would like copies of the photos and videos, please send in a labelled memory stick on the morning of the 19th and I will copy them for you as the file will be too large to add to the blog…we have so many photos that have captured the incredible memories!

The children were a real credit to you all, and Berkeley Primary school, with exemplary behaviour and a ‘can do’ attitude! They showed resilience, courage, bravery and whole lot of character! So proud of them all!

Looking forward to seeing you all there. If you could spread the word to others who don’t regularly check the blog, that would be most appreciated!

You will be able to take your children home straight from the presentation.

If any Y3 parents would like to come and see what your children will experience next year (it’s already booked) please come along, all welcome!

Thank you 😀

Last week was all about election fever at BPS!  We were all astounded at the interest, enthusiasm and understanding the children had about the General Election.  The children researched all the manifestos, and held debates for each party, resulting in a strong majority vote for the Green party, followed by Liberal Democrats and Labour.  Conservatives took the minority vote in Y3/4, with UKIP receiving no votes.  I think the 4 day week and abolishing SATS tests swung most towards the Green party! :)

The children then worked as a class to create their own ideas if they were to run the country.  They have developed some very insightful, thoughtful ideas for their futures which they will now use to write a speech of their own!

These young people certainly have a voice we should listen to!  Superb learning.  British Values at its best!
