Welcome to the website for Bowmandale Primary School. I hope that this site gives you a good insight into our school and demonstrates our commitment to creating a safe, positive and rewarding environment in which our pupils can learn and grow.

We have high hopes for all our pupils and it is important to us that children enjoy the time they spend here. Our aim is to provide a positive, nurturing learning environment for all children to enable them to achieve their potential and be the best that they can be. We want them to have the best possible start in life and help them to acquire the skills, knowledge, understanding and ambition to prepare them for life beyond the classroom. We want all of our children to achieve their very best.

Obb's Measuring Muddle

Today Year 2's favourite alien (Obb) asked for our help again! He told us that he was busy planning a fabulous party on Mars for all of his friends. Unfortunately he had forgotten how long he had chopped his party streamers! How could he possibly tell if his decorations would be long enough without our help? To save Obb's party, we used our rulers to accurately measure each streamer. We hope that if we help all week, we may even get an invite to the party of the year!

Hull and East Riding Museum

On the 24th of January, Mrs Noble's and Mr Taylor's classes went to the Hull and East Riding Museum to discover new facts about the Ancient Romans. The classes took part in two workshops – in one of them we pretended to be shop-keepers and shoppers. In the next workshop, we had a chance to be archaeologists and clean 'tesseri' (mosaic pieces), try on Ancient Roman armour, build a Roman arch and create our own mosaic. We all enjoyed this trip and are looking forward to our next one.
