Welcome to our school website!

At our school each child is valued and their unique set of skills and talents developed so that they can ‘be the best that they can be’. Our belief is that learning should be exciting and engaging. We want every child to leave our school ready for the next stage in their education and with a real appetite for learning.

We have high aspirations for every child that attends our school and a strong track record of achieving academic success. Equally, we ensure children at Bishop’s Waltham Junior are able to explore their full range of talents and interests.

Alongside a stimulating and varied curriculum, we offer a range of sporting, musical and artistic enrichment activities including successful sports clubs, drama productions and music concerts.

We place great emphasis on developing children’s personal skills and believe in the importance of developing kind, caring and respectful individuals. Behaviour in our school is very good and we offer children high quality care and pastoral support. We have strong systems in place to support children with additional learning needs and have a fully qualified Special Needs Co-ordinator on the staff team.

I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of Bishop’s Waltham Junior School and of the children and staff who contribute so much to the life of the school.

If you would like to find out more about the school or to arrange a visit please do not hesitate to contact us.

Darren Campbell

Headteacher

A place where excellence, effort and happiness are valued in equal measure.

BWJS Year 5&6 Football Team Shines at County Finals

The BWJS Year 5&6 Football Team has once again demonstrated exceptional talent and determination, making the school incredibly proud. Competing in the County Finals under challenging weather conditions, our team showed remarkable resilience and skill.

 

Despite the pouring rain, the team played a total of 8 matches, achieving an impressive record of 5 wins, 2 draws, and only 1 loss. This stellar performance earned them 17 points, just one point behind the eventual winners, Weeke Primary. Their outstanding effort secured them the title of Hampshire County Runners Up, a truly commendable achievement!

 

Throughout the tournament, the quality of football displayed by our players was consistently high. Their teamwork, strategic play, and sportsmanship were evident in every match, highlighting the hard work and dedication they have put into their training.

 

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Mr. Keyes and Mr. Corder for their excellent management of the team. Their guidance and support were instrumental in our team's success. Additionally, a special thank you to Mr. Chamberlain for his crucial role in refereeing many of the matches, ensuring fair play and sportsmanship.

 

Congratulations to all the players for their fantastic performance and for representing BWJS with such pride and excellence. We look forward to hearing about even more great achievements from our talented footballers in the future.

 

Well done, BWJS Year 5&6 Football Team!

Friday 24th May - Year 5 Learning Update

Friday 24th May - Year 5 Learning Update

We’ve rounded up the first part of our summer term with another two busy weeks. The children have enjoyed painting their clay waterfalls and have completed glorious explanation texts on how they form. This week we spent time writing instructions on how to make them so that next year’s Year Fives can enjoy the experience too. To build on their work on explanation texts, the year fives have made up their own silly explanations to describe how different household appliances work. These were inspired by another Roger McGough text, ‘Until I met Dudley.’ Our favourite explanations included a paper shredder with mice inside shredding the paper and an
elephant cleaning clothes inside a washing machine!#

In PE this week, we’ve been continuing to improve our bowling skills. We’ve practising rocking back and forwards while making the distinct rainbow shared bowling movement. We’re hoping to begin playing mini-games in the week after half term.

We’ve had limited donations of junk for our Art Week so far. Please do collect up cardboard tubes and small boxes over half term as we’ll be designing space age buildings in the
latter part of the week.

Friday 24th May 2024 - Year 3 Learning Update

Friday 24th May 2024 - Year 3 Learning Update

Year 3 have had a busy couple of weeks with their learning, culminating in their History trip to Fishbourne Roman Palace yesterday. The children learnt about the history of the Palace and looked at the excavated mosaics which had been found buried under the ground. Their workshop allowed them to become more familiar with the Roman way of life, looking for clues as to what Romans may have eaten and the clothes they wore.

 

Year 3 had a visit from their Year 2 buddy earlier in the week and they had the opportunity to swap letters and share a story. We look forward to welcoming the Year 2 children back in Summer 2.

 

In Maths, we have continued to look at division and fractions, using the short division method to help solve word problems.

 

We are looking forward to a restful half term and look forward to seeing you in Summer 2!
