Start and End of Term Messages!
May I take this opportunity to remind you that we start back on TUESDAY 6th SEPTEMBER 2011 and we
look forward to seeing pupils then. I would like to thank parents for their continuing support and staff for their
hard work and dedication during this academic year. Lastly, may I take this opportunity to wish pupils,
parents and staff a restful and enjoyable summer holiday.            Mr Charlton
Christ Church CofE Primary School, Sandwell and Bredon Hill Middle School
On Wednesday, Mr Taylor, Mr Nelson (Governor), Miss West and ourselves visited Christ Church Primary
School as part of our ‘international’ focus and RE studies. Christ Church school is a multi-faith school with
children from Muslim, Hindu and Sikh communities. Children from both schools did presentations about their
schools including uniform and curriculum. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and new friendships
were formed. We look forward to welcoming pupils from Christ Church School to our cross curricular
‘Languages’ day in September.

Making Money For BHMS The Easy Way –
If you shop online, then you can make money for the school by shopping ‘through’ this website, using the
links to over 2000 of the UK’s best-known retailers including Amazon, Tesco, Argos, John Lewis etc .
It doesn’t cost you a penny extra to shop but a percentage of your purchase will be donated to the cause of
your choice. Simply log on to and select your good cause (BHMS
PTA). Then, whenever you shop online via this website, a percentage of your purchase (variable depending
on retailer) will be donated to the school. Since we began last October we have raised just over £100. It is a
very EASY and painless way of raising money for the school in these increasingly difficult times - a great
IN ADDITION – BHMS has its own search engine – – the search results are
provided by Yahoo! and Bing, so they are just as good as Google, and the school gets ½p for every search
made! So easy ... so why not?

Activity Day Reminders
Y6 – Year 6 will spend their Activity Day at school. They may come to school in non-uniform but must ensure
that this is appropriate for participation in sports such as rounders and softball. They should also bring
trainers with them. We would also reiterate that the school kitchen is closed on this day and ALL pupils will
need to bring a PACKED LUNCH with them.
Y7 – Year 7 will spend their Activity Day at West Midland Safari Park. They may wear non-school uniform.
They should remember to bring a packed lunch, sun cream and hat if it is hot and a raincoat if rain is
threatened. Pupils will be back in time for the school buses as usual.
Y8 – Year 8 will spend their Activity Day at Battle Sports near Ross-on-Wye. As with those pupils in Year 7,
they should bring a packed lunch with them together with items for sun protection and/or rain. Once again,
pupils will be back in time for the school buses.
Bredon Fun Day - Sunday 17 July, 12 - 4 pm
On Sunday 17 July, Bredon will once again be holding its ‘Fun Day’ on Bredon Playing Fields. This year will
also mark the community celebrating the near completion of stage 1 of the Playing Fields redevelopment.
In addition to enjoying the new and improved park there will be a wide range of activities for all ages such as
football, cricket, face painting, bouncy castle, street dance, obstacle course, play rangers, fete games, bbq,
drumming, chocolate fountain, tombola, ice-cream van, and many more.
Stage 1 has enhanced the fields with 3 new play zones, a muga and path network adding to the sports
facilities already there to make it a space for all.
Bring your family along and enjoy a really fun day out in Bredon!
If you want to support this fantastic local asset then why not also become a ‘Friend of Bredon Playing Fields’

The website gives you details on how to join as well as the project itself.
School Meals Autumn Term 2011
From September 2011, the cost of our school meals will be £2.30. These should be either paid for online
weekly in advance or alternatively by cash on a daily basis. The online payments should be made by
10.00am on the Monday of each week to ensure that sufficient meals are prepared.
Unfortunately, meals are non-refundable unless your child is sick for more than two consecutive days.
More information about school meals and the menus for each week can be found on the school website
If you need a reminder of your child’s online payment number, please email and we will endeavour to reply with the number as soon as possible.
As you will see, a great number of pupils have been awarded commendations for their hard work.
Special congratulations go to Megan Larkin (7A) who achieved two commendations this week, producing a
fantastic castle project and presentation in history and a brilliant farming project write-up in geography. Well
done Megan.
