Week Ending 27th September 2013

On Wednesday, there was a large turn-out of guests for the first Sharing Assembly, of the new academic year.  Children shared their achievements and bravely spoke up clearly and confidently. There was a special mention for our Year Five pupils who have been so kind, helpful and mature, whilst looking so smart in their blazers and ties.

Thursday was another busy day, as it was once again time for our "Choices" afternoon, which everyone looks forward to. The "Choices" are wide and varied: Golf, Cross Country Running, Cookery, Science Experiments, Book Making, "Jobs People Do", EBA Newsletter, Spanish, Creative Pastimes.

For parents, there was an English grammar class on Thursday afternoon, hosted by an expert in this area - one of a series, all free of charge!

Friday was "Dahlicious Day", when we all dressed up as characters from Roald Dahl stories, or came to school wearing yummy yellow, to raise money for the Roald Dahl Charity Once again our children (and their parents!) did us proud, and there was a wonderful variety of costumes, from the whole wide range of Roald Dahl stories... and some Pre-School Super Heroes!  It's great to know that the money raised at Eaton Bray Academy will help towards making life better for seriously ill children.

The local papers came along and took photos for the newspaper, and made a lovely video for their website, which can be seen here.

Next week, on Wednesday, there will be a Sports afternoon, for Key Stage Two pupils, so hopefully the lovely spell of warm weather will last until then. The children have been practicing events and are looking forward to their special energetic afternoon.

WEDNESDAY 2nd OCTOBER - HSA AGM. Please come along for a chat, wine and nibbles at 7.30pm.
