Thank you to all of the kitchen staff for the most delicious Christmas lunch!
Breakfast Club members, children and adults, wrote postcards to the government to tell them how important a healthy breakfast is to their learning. We have received a thank you letter from Magic Breakfast. We are an ambassador school for the charity and support them to promote the message, 'No child too hungry to learn'.
Thank you so much for taking part in Magic Breakfast’s recent campaign. With support from Blue Gate Fields Junior School, and other schools across England, 1,200 children wrote to the Prime Minister to ask him to step up his support for school breakfasts. We handed in these postcards to 10 Downing Street on 7 November. You can read more about the hand in and see photos here. Your support, via the postcards, has helped us raise awareness of the scale of child hunger and position school breakfasts as a proven solution, amongst parliamentarians and amongst the public.
Keeping school breakfasts on the political agenda is now more important than ever during this election period!

A part of our RE, we were learning about the question: Why is Jesus inspiring to some people?’ From this topic, children asked several others questions. We learnt what different religions taught us about love and death. Children explored religious stories from Christianity, Islam and Hinduism as well as learning what atheists believe. They decided on discussing and debating the big question: ‘Is love greater than death?’
They used their knowledge and understanding of different religions to argue for and against the question. Here are parts of their discussion:
Blue Gate Fields Junior School celebrated Eid with parties, beautiful outfits and lots of sparkle. Thank you all for sharing your delicious food and treats.
Science Day was a huge success with Year 4 working alongside Year 6, and Year 5 working with Year 3 to manage and teach science investigations. It was sticky, slimy, whizzing, banging and popping good fun with lots of learning of course!
