Bishopston Mum: July 2017

June 22 2017

Pupils at Bishop Road Primary School have started this new term with the arrival of a beautiful new school bell. The school's bell tower has always been empty since the school was built in 1900 and the new school bell completes it perfectly.

Pupils at Bishop Road Primary School have started this new term with the arrival of a beautiful new school bell. The school's bell tower has always been empty since the school was built in 1900 and the new school bell completes it perfectly. It has been designed with a traditional look and includes a lobster design, plus the words “will you won't you” taken from The Mock Turtle's song in Alice in Wonderland, representing Bishop Road's school's appreciation and focus on children's literature. The new school bell will ring at the start and end of every school day. 

• Those parents and carers who used to enjoy visiting the brilliant Cairns Café at Cairns Road Baptist Church when their kids were little may well be interested to hear about Oasis Hour, a new weekly meet-up for parents and carers with children of school age and older. Oasis Hour takes place at Cairns Café on Wednesday afternoons in term-time from 2.15 – 3.15pm and will give parents and carers a chance to meet-up with friends or even make new friends over a cuppa and some of the café’s famous cake! All are welcome so please do drop by one Wednesday – you can be sure of a friendly welcome. 

 • If you have young children approaching pre-school age and are looking into possible pre-schools for them, there are currently places at Horfield Methodist Playgroup which is open from Monday to Friday 9am – 12 noon in term-time. This pre-school has been running for an astonishing 49 years and offers a fantastic variety of activities for the children, plus a huge hall and a great collection of scooters and bikes for the children to whizz around in! To find out more and to arrange a visit please phone the pre-school on 07903 350214 or email playgroup@horfieldmethodist.org.uk

• Now that summer is here and the summer holidays not too far away you may well be thinking about holiday club care for your children. This summer there are some Enid Blyton-inspired holiday club sessions for children aged 5 – 12 at the Island of Adventure – aka the Golden Hill Community Garden! 

There will be storytelling from Enid Blyton's books, treasure hunts, dressing-up, games, a camp fire, fresh pizza from the frog oven and lashings and lashings of fun! My children often do these holiday clubs at the community garden and really enjoy them and I promise your children will too. The sessions will be held from 10am – 4pm on Tuesdays throughout the Summer hols starting from 25 July until 29 August and cost £26 per child per day (£21 for extra siblings) which includes a delicious lunch and snacks. To book a place please contact Lucy on ghcgarden@gmail.com or 07506 905394.

 I hope you enjoy a lovely July!
