Welcome to Scott Lower.

28th March 2015 - Easter Holidays

Easter is a fantastic time and there are always plenty of things to do. Here are a few ideas:- Entertain your children over the Easter Holidays

Have a wonderful Easter!

20th March 2015 - Partial Solar Eclipse


Friday turned out to be a wonderful day for all the children as they witnessed their first solar eclipse. We have taken a few photos of the day - just click on the image above to view the album.

There is no doubt that the whole experience was tremendously educational and for some, truly inspirational. Keep that spirit alive, join a local club, borrow books from the library etc. Don't forget, we are always here if you need us.

16th March 2015 - Solar Eclipse

Warning, never look directly at the sun without taking the necessary precautions. All our children will be provided with special glasses - sadly not as many arrived as hoped but we can share/rotate. If any parents can help supply some more we would be so grateful!

Perhaps some parents would like to get involved and make pinhole projectors with their children which they could bring along on the day? Follow this link which shows you how easy it is to make them - making pinhole projectors for viewing eclipses

This is a rare opportunity to witness a spectacular event (weather permitting!) from our own shores and of tremendous educational benefit - there will not be another like this until 2026... There are a number of Astronomy websites with more detailed information including local clubs such as the Bedford Astronomical Society (ideal for budding astronomers!).

Wild Survival - Easter Holiday Course

holiday courses

Brickhill Parish Council often organise subsidised holiday activities for local children. This Easter is no exception and Scott Lower will once again be acting as the official venue.

Most courses are fully booked already, but there are still a few spaces on the Wild Survival course which is on Wednesday 1st April between 9:00am and 1:00pm. Get in quick! Children love these courses, they learn new skills, make great friends and cheerish the memories for years to come.

This is the 18th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 5th March children from Scott Lower joined others of all ages from around the world in coming together and appreciating reading - and in the spirit of the event - very loudly and very happily!

27th January 2015 - Maths Information Evening

Last week we held a Maths Information Evening for parents. It was really well attended and feedback about the event has been extremely positive. A Report from our Numeracy Link Governor sums it up perfectly:-

"On Tuesday evening I went along to the Maths Evening the school hosted. This was to give parents and carers an understanding of the curriculum that will be covered in all years along with some of the methods used. Being 'old school' I have to admit that some of the current methods were new to me (number lines anyone?!) so it was useful to not only be shown these but to also have a go! I must say that some of the adults were very enthusiastic when counting our loud!

It was great to see so many parents and carers as it really does make a difference to your children if you can assist and encourage them with their learning.

Thanks to all the staff involved for arranging and presenting it so well.

School Governor

January 2015 - A day in the Woods!

As part of our Frozen Planet topic, Year 4 enjoyed an exciting day in the woods. The children’s first task was deciding which items to put on their sledges, knowing they would be responsible for carrying them around all day.

They enjoyed a range of activities including using maps to find their rations and recording their day in words and pictures.

In the afternoon the children had another big task, finding Mr Leach who was lost in the woods.

It was an enjoyable day and the children learnt a lot about working in a team, making their decisions, compromising and persevering.

January 2015 - 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.

Annual Christmas Tree Festival

Xmas 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.

Our Four School Rules Video

Hopefully you like our short video (courtesy of our very own ICT Leader at school!) and that many more will follow...

We would just like to thank all the children that took part in this video, they all did a wonderful job and I am sure you agree, are a credit to the school.

Apologies for the sound quality in places!
