This is our school! There are always plenty of activities in and out of school to join in with such as cooking, dancing, gardening, sport and many more. We enjoy working with the community and have had visits from authors, artists, sports coaches and theatre companies. Bishopton takes part in the wider community by celebrating special events with others, performing on stages and multicultural festivals, visiting other primary and secondary schools to further the children's education and taking part in local sport events.
This is our playground. We have a new quiet, seated area for children to read books and socialise. We have new magnetic wall games to use on the side of the buildings and a brand new climbing and activities area. Throughout the year, we grow our own vegetables in our gardening area.
This is where we like to play in the Summer, we now have new trees and an adventure area which we really love!! Mr York looks after the school's vegetable garden here too with the support of the other children. We are currently training for our annual sports day. Bishopton enjoys using the outdoor areas to further the children's learning.
We are very proud of our new playground equipment which includes things to climb, swing and balance on. We enjoy using this during our playtimes and special treats. It has recently been extended this Summer and many more fun things have been added for us to use.
This is our school library, it is fully stocked with fiction and non-fiction books to suit all key stages. We enjoy using this space for reseach, guided reading and small group work activities. We are often donated new books and enjoy related events such as national book weeks.
This is our ICT suite, it is air-conditioned and equipped with 15, new Windows 7 computers, web cams and microphone sets.Each classroom has it's own interactive whiteboard, visuliser and computers or laptops. Bishopton has recently implemented Wireless networking in order to make ICT learning more flexible. We also use digital cameras, podcasting equipment and flip video cameras in many of our lessons. We use the We-Learn Platform to communicate with others and photos of school activites are displayed on the LCD screen in our reception. Our recent project to install a new projector, laptop, sound system and screen in our school hall and integrating iPads into our curriculum is now complete! The children are enjoying using the new equipment.
This is the reception classroom. It is a large, colourful and a welcoming environment for our younger children to play and learn. Attached to this classroom is our speech and language unit. Parents of Bishopton have supported our school by helping to create a beautiful outdoor area for our younger children for them to discover more about the world around them. They also have their own additional playground.
Our Reception children love their outdoor space which includes their very own playground, sandpit, climbing frame, bicycle zone, garden and pond/water area.
This is our outdoor reading area. We like to use this at playtimes and lunchtimes to sit quietly with our friends or to read and share our favourite books.
This is our wildlife garden, we are growing our own vegetables and strawberries this year.
At Bishopton we really enjoy our school dinners. Each day a healthy menu is prepared and we have a lot of choice of which food we would like to eat. We are very much part of Government drive to provide children with healthy diets.
This is our School hall where we have our assemblies, special activites and music days. On Friday afternoons, we share our work with our parents and perform class activites. Our BASH club is run here before and after school. Our country dancers use the hall to practise for events and it is a place where we can all join together to celebrate our achievements. We have recently installed a brand new presentation screen and sound system which we use for assemblies, presentations and general day to day use.
This is our all weather tyre area where we like to play at lunchtimes - it was an idea suggested by the school council!
This is our vegetable patch where we like to grow our own produce such as carrots, potatoes and peas. In the Spring and Summer our gardening club looks after the patch and other bushes and trees on the school field.
