Bordesley Boodle Bazaar Grand Opening
It's a very exciting day at Bordesley Green Primary today. The grand opening of the Bordesley Boodle Bazaar! Will our first customers spend their boodles or save?
Our new schools shop is part our exciting Young Money project in school which aims to teach the children important aspects of Financial Education. Children can earn boodles to spend in the shop by working hard to learn and apply their spellings each week.
A few lucky children from year 3 to year 6 had the opportunity to create clay houses with Miss Hodges from Camp Hill Boys school, Mrs Ahmed and Miss Shaheen. We spent the afternoon learning new vocabulary such as score and slip and we created amazing houses of our choice including spooky houses and candy houses. We had such a great afternoon and we can’t wait to share all the skills we learnt with the rest of our classes!

Steve spent time in each Year 3 and Year 4 class talking about his work as an author and also demonstrating some of his talents as an illustrator.
