Lunch Time Awards—Top Table
Every week Mr. Wilson awards children for demonstrating our Christian values during lunch time, the nominated children get an invitation to join the top table on the Friday of that week. This week the lunch time top table awards go to:
Friendship - Gopal A 5JE
Service - Libby P 3ES, Maia B 3ED, Mia E 5JE
Respect - Jessica M 4AT, Megan S 4AT
To nurture the growth of friendships in school we are changing the number of children who are invited on to the top table on a Friday from 12 to 6.
The 6 children who receive an invite will be asked to bring another pupil to accompany them. We want to encourage the children to ask someone who has never been invited to the top table in the past. This can be either a usual friend or someone in their class or year group they do not usually play with at lunchtime.
of the National Young mathematicians
WHIZZKIDS from Bilton C of E Junior school have fought off fierce competition from 500 schools across the country to win a prestigious maths award.
A team from the school were crowned winners of the Ntional Young Mathematicians' Award after taking part in the grand final at Cambridge University.
The team - comprising Himansa, Sriram, Rachel and Jessica - battled through three rounds of the competition to be declared the best young mathematical brains in the country.
Organised by Explore Learning and the NRICH Project at Cambridge University the competition aimed to stretch and inspire the minds of some of the country's brightest young pupils.
CBBC presenter Stefan Gates handed over the award following the groups' efforts.
Bilton C of E Junior School Head teacher Mrs Alex Norton said: " We are incredibly proud of all our learners. They are a brilliant team who support one another and inspire us to be the best we can be."
Charlotte Gater, head of curriculum at Explore Learning said:The level of talent this competition produces seems to grow every year, and this year was no exception. All of the finalists should feel extremely proud of what they've managed to achieve. It was a fantastic day at the final and the results were extremely close."
Stefan Gates said: "It was a fantastic competition where the kids, parents and teachers were all so engaged."
"I was wonderful to see the nation's best young minds at work and the teams have done extremely well to make it through to the final."
Rugby Advertiser - Thursday December 15, 2016
We are delighted that BJS have been chosen to display our work at the Gallery. The certificate below shows the recognition of our pupils work.
Miss Lewis and myself had an evening in London on Tuesday visiting The National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. The reason for our visit was to go to the opening of a very special presentation linked to the 'Take One Picture' initiative led by Mrs McKee last year. We are one of 27 schools with art work put forward for their latest exhibition which takes you on a magical odyssey of creativity, encountering women of power and magical sea creatures along the way. Our Sweetheart brooches were linked to our World War 1 and 2 topics in Year 6.
For the 23rd Annual 'Take One Picture' exhibition, primary school children were encouraged to respond to Pintoricchio's Penelope with the Suitors. If you get the chance to visit the Gallery's Sunley Room is free to enter and is well worth a visit between 9th May- 12 August 2018. Look out over the next few days in the entrance area to school and you will see the other pieces of art work we created as part of the initiative. We have plastic bag art, printing and also an amazing sculpture for you to enjoy.
