Dictionaries presented by our local Rotary Club

Mrs Burroughes visited school on Monday 4th November, to present dictionaries to our Year 5 children, on behalf of the Rotary Club. The children were very happy to have them and it was lovely that Mrs Burroughes could share some memories of her children and grandchildren attending Bressingham School. We are very grateful to Mrs Burroughes and Rotary Club for these gifts.

This year all of Kestrel class have had the opportunity to take part in Bikeability training.  Kestrels have been able to complete stages 1 and 2 of the training, cycling on the school playground in between cones (or hedgehogs) and through funnels, and learning how to signal as well as being out on the road. Everyone has had a great time learning to ride their bikes safely.
