Welcome to Scott Lower.
|Year 3 Victorian Day|
On the first day of the new term Year 3 came to school dressed up as Victorian children. They looked fantastic!
Throughout the day they experienced lessons and activities children during the Victorian era would have completed. There was plenty of reciting of poetry and times-tables; copying proverbs from the board; learning about the kings and queens of the British Empire and sketching. A few who misbehaved found themselves in the corner wearing the dunces hat!
At playtime they played traditional Victorian games and at lunch time tucked into their Victorian packed lunches. Finally during the afternoon the children made bread and butter. They were all model Victorian children and a very enjoyable day was had by all.
|Merry Christmas & Happy New Year|
We have come to the end of another term and the whole school is looking forward to the Christmas break - to say that the atmosphere amongst the children has been 'electric' would be an understatement!
The prospect of Christmas cheers us and lifts our spirits in the face of the cold, dark and depressing winter nights. Whatever our beliefs, this is one time of year when human kindness truly reveals itself.
Embrace this time, remember those in need and above all, enjoy yourselves.
On behalf of the pupils and staff of Scott Lower School, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and everything you would wish yourselves for the New Year!
Annual Christmas Tree Festival
The members of The School Council at Scott Lower School had a thoroughly enjoyable time decorating a Christmas tree for the Annual Christmas Tree Festival at St Paul's Church.
The tree was one of 62 Christmas Trees decorated by voluntary services, organisations, local businesses and schools (together with two Trees of Remembrance) in support of this years theme, "Friendship through sport".
The festival has given enormous pleasure to thousands of people since it began in 2001, raising £98,000 in the process. All the proceeds are shared equally between the Bedford Hospitals Charity and St Paul’s Church.
Thank you to all the people that made this years entry possible and all those that went along in support of the School and our children.

Mayor opens New Classroom Building at Scott Lower School
Pupils, staff and Governors at Scott Lower School were delighted to welcome the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and other Local Authority officials to formally open their new building on Wednesday 22nd October; the Major also unveiled a spectacular commemorative mosaic commissioned by artist Kristy Adams, the tiles for which were kindly donated by the local firm "Elstow Ceramics"".
Not only did the pupils proudly show the visitors their new classroom but they also impressed them with their amazing singing and ribbon dancing. Headteacher, Anita Barker said " Our School is due to double in size over the next 3 years and we are thrilled to have such a wonderful new learning environment for our children".
Welcome Back to School
Welcome back after what I hope, was a lovely summer for you all. During the summer holidays Wilmott and Dixon worked hard to ensure that our new classroom block was ready for the beginning of the academic year.
The building will provide the additional classroom space needed to expand to a two form entry school. Our Year 4 children are very proud to be the first children to use the fantastic new building. We are all looking forward to the Mayor formally opening our new building on 22nd October.
