After 30 years of service at Burton abroad, we say a tearful goodbye and well wishes to our beloved Mrs Guthrie. Well done to those children in class 7 who contributed to her goodbye assembly with your kind words! 

During our numeracy this week, we have been looking at 3D shapes and their properties as well as identifying which nets belong to which 3D shape. 

In addition to this, some of us have been on a shape walk around school - we didn't find many hexagonal prism or tetrahedron objects. Can you think of any?

Class 7's Spelling list for week 5:












After learning about the battle of Tewkesbury, we completed some of our own representations of stained glass windows in the style of Tewkesbury Abbey. I must say, they look amazing and so effective on our windows!

Well done to Class 7 for exceptional behaviour and sensible participation in the Pedestrian Road Safety activity. You’re a credit to our school!

Road Safety Day

Excellent work everyone! I know that Ava, Jacob and Alysha have really tried their best to get a pen license! Look at all those bronze commendations not forgetting extra reading miles for Charley! Keep this up! 

Our achievements this week...

Congratulations to Halima for passing her grade 1 recorder exam. I know how hard you’ve practised and it’s certainly paid off. Well done!

Collaboration work in maths- concept cartoon questions about angles and shape. We discussed which statements were true and which were false to assist our understanding in today’s learning. 

Did you know...

Humans “see” when light that reflects off of objects reaches our eyes. Some colours send more light back so we see them better. For example, brightly coloured objects reflect more light than dark-coloured objects do. Fluorescent objects send out visible light when high-energy light shines onto them. Retro-reflective material—often referred to as reflective material, used on road signs and some safety gear, for example—bounces back almost all of the light that shines onto it.


During Science we investigated which colours best showed up in the dark and then with the help of torchlight. We were able to go into a pitch black makeshift cave to accurately investigate after we made our predictions. We had found that dark colours are not easily visible with little light and that shiny or fluorescent colours show up better due to them reflecting the light better than darker colours. 

 We realised that having a ‘cave’ in class was pretty cool and we also liked going in for a bit of ‘me time’ ☺️ 

Well done to Charley- for achieving this week's special mention for perseverance in Literacy. As well as this, Daniel and Jacob have gained more reading miles and Reece and Ava have achieved the golden ties for always good behaviour and work. As well as this our 'Veggie challenge' winners are Liam in first place and Ava and Evie are our runners up. Keep up the hard work everyone.

Some of you may be aware that the legendary ‘Bruce Dyer’ comes to our school to coach football, during and after school. 

Well our children love the activities and learn a lot from Bruce with regards to respect and fair play. Some of our children have won a special trophy from winning a tournament with Bruce.

Great work Alex, Drew and George, for your super participation. 


An added well done to everyone that participated! Remember if you didn’t win this time, it’s the taking part that counts! 

Friday’s are always exciting, especially when awards are given out. Our ‘Special Mention’ this week goes to Lucy-she’s really pushed herself during literacy this week. In addition to this, our ‘Veggie Challenge’ winners are Ava and Evie in joint first place, Ashleigh in second place and Halima in third place. Well done girls! As well as these awards, children in Class 7 have been reading more at home, which has increased their Reading Miles! Well done to Jacob, Ava and George! Keep up the hard work Class 7 ☺️
 Today was a great day but unfortunately we said goodbye to one of our members of our team in Class 7- Miss Steele. It’s been a pleasure working with her and we wish her well in her new job.
During our numeracy lesson today we have been finding the perimeter of compound shapes. We had the task of looking at a bird's eye view of our school from 'Google Maps' and working out the perimeter of it. It was a fun task and at times was challenging. We hope we can get out with the trundle wheel and actually measure the perimeter of our school at some point.

What a superb, intriguing afternoon we've had today! We have been learning about Henry V's battle at Agincourt! Henry V had a clever formation of his army and as a result he and his army won the battle against the French. In class, we've had the opportunity to draw his journey around France leading up to the battle, then we've drawn our own interpretations of the army formations for each side. Everyone said they'd really enjoyed this lesson, as did I, and we are looking forward to learning more next week.

Jacob went to Spurn Point during Easter and has found some fascinating fossils. We were lucky enough to see them and feel their texture. Thank you for sharing with us Jacob!

Well done to Zander and Evie for achieving the Golden Tie this week!

I hope everyone has enjoyed the Easter break and is ready to start off our exciting Summer term. Our upcoming term is extremely thrilling, as we advance on to our learning about some of the great British battles throughout history. We shall start with; the battle of Agincourt, the battle of Wakefield (which was pretty close to us!), the battle of Tewesbury, the battle of Bosworth, the Spanish Armada, the battle of Waterloo, the battle of Somme and finally finishing with D-Day, the invasion of Normandy. I hope you're as elated as I am to learn about these fascinating elements of history. In other subjects, we shall be learning about Light then about Changing States including the Water Cycle in Science, Buddhism in RE and continuing our daily learning in Literacy, Numeracy and grammar.  

I look forward to another fun-filled academic term and to seeing your continued hard work in class.

Alex has wowed us today's by bringing in his medal from the 'Iron Kids' competition. He was proud to say he did really well and tried his best in running at this event.

What a fun filled numeracy lesson we've had today! We have participated by working collaboratively in an 'Easter maths hunt challenge', which has consisted in problem solving and team work. It has been a different way of doing our numeracy and we've throughly enjoyed it.

During our PE session this afternoon, we have been completing an SAQ (speed, agility, quickness) assault course. We have worked so hard that we were red in the face as well as sweating perfusely too! We enjoy keeping fit and healthy at school and activities such as this encourage us to push ourselves. 

Sweating in PE=working our bodies hard!

Don't forget to complete your weekly challenges on Mathletics Class 7!

During our topic lesson this afternoon, we have been learning about the battle of Hastings in 1066AD. Our tasks included putting events leading up to, during and after into chronological order and understanding how and why William the Conquerer was successful. This has been an interesting end to our Spring term topic of 'Vikings' simultaneously being a wonderful introduction to our Summer topic of the 'Famous Great British Battles'.

1066 AD Battle of Hastings

Our Veggie Challenge winners this week are Ashleigh in first place, Alex in second place and Chloe and Ava in joint third place. Well done everyone!

During science today we have been investigating where light comes from and classifying which things are sources of light or not. In addition to this, we have had a walk around school and found different sources of light.

During literacy today we have been identifying the features of a newspaper article. Some of us did a matching activity whilst others highlighted the features that they could see. In addition to this, we have created a catchy headline for our newspaper report. Look at our magpied ideas...

As well as this, Ava had baked some Viking buns with Ollie for a lovely class treat! Aren't we the lucky ones?! I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Liam's Viking Saga about Thor and the Giants part 1 and I must say that after reading 'How to be a Viking' by Halima, I can definitely make the best Viking! Not forgetting Jacob, who has worked hard on his longboat model. Truly amazing! Well done everyone, I cannot wait to share this work with everyone on 'Parent's Evening'.

Following a site inspection, Burton Road School will remain closed. This is due to the adverse weather conditions & the safety of: learners, parents & staff travelling to school. It was our best intention to open the school today but unfortunately this couldn't happen. We expect to reopen on Monday. Thankyou for your patience & understanding.

Some of Class 7 have had ‘snow’ much fun on their SNOWDAY! Happy birthday to Ava too, snow for your birthday- how lovely!

Again, apologies but we are closed today Thursday 1st March. Keep warm and safe everyone!
