Year 6 Knex Challenge

Stemworks ran a Knex challenge in Class 6 and the winners of the Bussage heat were Ashton and Owen. The two boys then proudly went on to compete in the grand final which was held at Millbrook Academy, Brockworth against other schools in the county.Their challenge on the day was to create a vehicle suitable for travelling on the moon. The boys worked incredibly hard and enthusiastically to create their model in the time allowed and their hard work paid off as they gained third place in the competition. What a fantastic achievement! They brought back to school a super trophy as well as knex kits as prizes. Well done boys!

Red Nose Day

Bussage School turned from blue to a sea of red on Friday 24th March to raise money for Comic Relief. The children came dressed in red and looked fantastic. The Charity Ministry organised the day including a class comedian competition where the children had the chance to tell their best jokes and a red nose colouring competition with winners from each class.

Congratulations to all our winners!

Here are a few pictures of the day.

Google Visits Bussage!

Neil Carmichael, our local MP, kindly selected our school to receive a presentation from Google all about online safety. On Friday 20th January, Key Stage 2 children filed into the hall, and to their surprise, were given a giant foam hand!  There followed an exciting performance teaching the children all about how to be safe when using the internet.

 

 

 

 

The children used their foam hands to vote ‘true’ or ‘false’ in response to questions asked by the Google team.  They learned about how to be an Internet Legend by being safe and epic online!

The messages Google were sharing with the children were:

  • 1. Think before you share.
  • 2. Protect your stuff.
  • 3. Check it’s for real.
  • 4. Respect each other.

These are important lessons for all children to help them use the internet safely.

We would like to say a big thank you to Neil Carmichael for selecting our school for this exciting opportunity, and to the Google team for a fantastic educational experience.
