Newsletter 20 – July 2017

Dear Parents

This has been a very busy term with lots of fabulous Flax learning taking place.

This week the KS2 pupils have been singing beautifully, dancing amazingly and showing us their acting skills and comedy timing! The Pirates of the Curry Bean has been a huge success: Well done to all the pupils and the staff who ensured their performances were memorable and so enjoyable.

This week has also seen KS2 attend the Countryside Day with over two thousand other school children from North Somerset; an event which aims to help the children understand the link between farming and the food that we eat. The children learnt lots about farming and country life.

Beech and Maple class have been enjoying using the new veggie beds, with beans being harvested by Beech and Maple’s sunflowers growing taller by the day.

Willow class have been learning about minibeasts this term. They have created some beautiful butterfly drawings (which can be seen on display in the hall) as well as some amazing clay models. The celebration of their learning ends this week with a minibeast extravaganza party. Maple class have visited Tyntesfield twice in the last two weeks on two very warm but enjoyable days. The children have learnt about different plants that we can eat as well as being flower hunters and tree champions.

Maple have been working all term to become plant experts and they have all earned their Plant Expert Badges.

Chestnut class have been creating a plate with their handprint on along with their memories of their first year in school. These look amazing and are full of lots of wonderful memories. As the school year draws to an end we should reflect on the huge successes of our pupils and how much has been achieved this year.

You will be receiving your child’s school report on Friday which not only outlines their academic progress but also reflects on their qualities and attributes as a learner.

We would like to wish all of our fabulous Year 6 pupils the very best in the next stage of their journey. They have been super ambassadors for Flax Bourton CofE Primary School, living our school motto, “Aiming High, Respecting Others, Having Fun” to the full. We wish them all the best in the future and hope they will come back frequently to share how they are getting on.
