The children were visited by the M6 theatre company this week and were lucky enough to watch their Sunflowers and Sheds show. They loved the story and seeing how the characters developed throughout the show.




Owls at SBS - November 2022

Year 1 were visited by SJM Falconry who brought four owls for the children to learn about. The children listened to facts about the different types of owls, saw them fly and everyone had the opportunity to hold one of the owls. The children used this learning to write owl fact files in their English lessons.

Lest We Forget.




























Diwali 2022 

We celebrated the Hindu Festival of Diwali here in school with a special assembly, which included a demonstration of Bollywood inspired dancing and back in class the children learnt about the story of Rama and Sita and how Diwali is celebrated by Hindus around the world.

Shakespeare at SBS  - October 2022

Year 6 were fortunate to watch the Young Shakespeare Company in a mesmerising performance of the play Macbeth.  This provided a wonderful opportunity for the children to experience Shakespeare through direct involvement in one of his plays.  The play was brought vividly to life and involved the whole audience in recreating some of the most dramatic scenes in this story of ambition, guilt and revenge.


Tom Palmer Visits Smithy Bridge!  - October 2022

Years 5 and 6 were delighted to have the celebrated children’s author - Tom Palmer - in school. Tom is particularly well known for the Football Academy and Conkers series of books. Tom talked the children about his writing process and why reading is so important. The children asked some fantastic questions and enjoyed hearing what Tom had to say. He certainly inspired some budding authors!
