Look at what we've been doing

Year 2 girls' football tournament

Some of our Year 2 girls visited Sandwell Academy recently to take part in a football tournament.  They worked very hard and won the tournament! We are really proud of their achievement and the positive way they represented our school. We hope this will inspire more young girls to get involved in competitive sport! 

 

Our annual family picnic!

Our whole school community had such a wonderful time at our picnic!  The rain stayed away so that we could enjoy the bouncy castles, the magic show, the ice creams and glitter tattoos!  Thank you everyone for such a fabulous afternoon.

 

 

 

 

 

Year 5 Houses of Parliament trip

Year 5 had a fabulous day in London earlier this week!!  They visited the Houses of Parliament, Horse Guards Parade and had a boat ride along the Thames, as well as seeing many other sights!

Well done to one of our football teams who recently played in a tournament at Moat Farm School.  They played exceptionally well and came second place.  We are very proud of them!

Easter Egg competition (22nd March)

Our annual decorated Easter egg competition has been amazing again this year.  We had entries from across school including Humpty Dumpty, the universe, a football match and even a Ferris wheel!  Well done to our class winners and everyone who took part!

 

Science Fair (12th and 13th March)

Our annual science fair has taken place this week.  Classes had so much fun and were amazed by the scientific experiments that were shared.  Our Science Ambassadors excelled themselves in their explanation of the science within the experiments and were well supported by our teaching students who organised and led the activities.  We were also supported by parents who came to share their science-linked careers.  Well done Burnt Tree!

Biggest Ever Football Session (8.3.24)

A group of girls from across Key Stage 2 took part in the Biggest Ever Football Session, alongside 465,000 other girls across the country.  It was organised by the Football Association and Barclays as part of the 'Let Girls Play' campaign.  The date coincided with International Women's Day and was a great way to celebrate!

World Book Day (7.3.24)

Today we celebrated World Book Day across school.  We started the day with an assembly with our visiting author, Angela Marie James.  She read lots of her wonderful poetry to us and we learned about her career.  Each key stage had a workshop with her too during the day: 'Guess the animal', 'Poetry can be about anything' and 'Abandoned House' poetry.  These were really interactive and lots of fun.  Angela also met with our school council and librarians where they interviewed her and found out a lot about her career and life.  She was really inspirational! 

In our classes we took part in a live, online event with a range of authors and illustrators.  We also did other reading linked activities which included writing book reviews, sharing our favourite stories, creating dream jars and a scavenger hunt which taught us how to use our school library properly.  We held a whole school competition where we had to use a paper plate to create a character linked with a book - we had over 200 entries!  Angela had a tough time choosing one winner per class!  Staff had a great day too - even our teaching students dressed up!

SHAPE Your Talent competition (5.3.24)

Our Key Stage 1 choir took part in the Oldbury round of Just Youth Sandwell's annual talent completion, and won their heat!  They sang as beautifully as always and cannot wait for the voting to begin after the other heats have finished. 

 

Y3/Y4 football competition (28.2.24)

Today, children from Y3 and Y4 took part in a football competition, held at the West Bromwich Dome.  The children played in a 6-a-side tournament against other schools. They played fantastically well and represented our school with a polite and mature attitude. Well done children!

 

Rebecca Adlington (7.2.24)

Today we had the pleasure of welcoming Rebecca Adlington to Burnt Tree!  She talked to us about her career, her Olympic experiences and most importantly, water safety.  She even bought her medals for us to see!

 

 

West Midlands Police Museum (30.1.24)

Our Family Support Worker, Miss Gamwell, took a group of Year 5 children into Birmingham to visit the Police Museum.  They had a really fantastic day exploring how forensics are used in crime scenes, trying on police uniforms and even being 'locked' in the cells!

 

 

 

The Violence Reduction Partnership (Y6)

Our Virtual Reality experience was superb!  We learned about anti-social behaviour and how to deal with certain situations.

Christmas 2023

Our Christmas celebrations have been amazing!!!  We even had a visit from Father Christmas himself!

Remembrance 2023

'We remembered them' by creating class wreaths and crosses.  We all gathered for an assembly and held two minutes' silence.  Lest we forget.
