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 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 learning experience that will help all children to make rapid progress, whatever their starting point. 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 the very best that they can.
It's vital that we work closely with parents and carers and we encourage you to take an active interest in your child's education and school life – your contribution is valued and important. Our school is always striving to improve and we are eager to work closely with the whole school community to achieve our ambition of providing our pupils with the best possible start to their education.
Head teacher: Mrs E Dunstan (begins September 2016)
Our team represented North Lincolnshire and played 12 activities in Tri Golf. The team players were Peter, Madison Ricketts, Alesha, Yasmin, George, Elle, Leah, Jack, Matthew and Henry. The teachers that came along with us were Mr Towers and Miss Richardson.
There was an Opening Ceremony featuring my banner design and all of the other competitor's designs too. It was extremely exciting and thrilling to watch our team play Tri Golf. They played 6 activities before lunch and 6 after. I didn't participate in any of the activities, therefore I was making notes and taking pictures and videos of what had been happening.
A panda mascot came around to all of the teams and gave them a high five and a hug. The panda look quite realistic with soft fur and gentle paws.
A famous BMXer named Keelan Phillips put on an entertaining stunt show for us in the basketball court. After his performance, most people got their hats, bags and T-shirts signed by him and had a picture taken with him.
After that, there was a closing ceremony that was held in the same place as the opening ceremony. It made everybody very tense because it was announcing the results! The winning team was Martongate Primary School from the East Riding with 1425 points. Bowmandale came 6th with 918 points.
We all had a phenomenal day and I hope that there are more opportunities like this in the future.
