Week Ending 16th May 2014

Another busy week at Eaton Bray Academy!

On Monday we all enjoyed a non-uniform day, in return for a contribution towards our Summer Fair, which takes place on Saturday 14th June. Children brought in donations of crisps, biscuits, paper napkins... all to go into a summer picnic hamper to be raffled on the day.

Also on Monday, the first sessions of our after school karate club took place, which proved to be popular and fun. This is open to adults as well as children from the age of six years.

On Wednesday, in Sharing Assembly, children shared their wonderful achievements of this half term with their families. There was a wide variety of pieces of work from right across the curriculum, all worthy of praise.

On the same day, a bee-keeping expert came to visit, and talked about life as a bee-keeper, allowing children to investigate a colony of bees, and taste delicious honey. The children learned a tremendous amount about not only the bee-keeper's job, but also about the busy bees!

Saturday evening is the time for "A Night at the Races" - the HSA have worked hard to put on a fundraising Race Night, so hopefully all concerned will have an enjoyable evening.

Next Wednesday, the Main School will travel to Stockwood Park, for an experience on the tracks, just like professional atheletes... there will, of course, be a "medal" ceremony (watch this space for photographs!)

Our hall board is almost complete - a painting by Henri Rousseau reproduced in collage, with colourful contributions from every class. It is beginning to look wonderful, and just right for our "Global Gardens" theme. Again - watch this space for a photograph!
