Week Ending 13th February 2015

The School was buzzing with excitement on Tuesday and Thursday, as KS2 children set off on the minibus to sports tournaments - Athletics on Tuesday and Rugby on Thursday.  The children looked very smart in their EBA track suits, and did very well... Eaton Bray Academy came first in the rugby tournament!

At the end of the School day on Thursday, there was a Valentine's Cake Sale in the Hall, organised by the HSA, where the children could purchase cakes... and of course eat them!  The sale was very busy, and made an amazing profit of more than £170 for school funds!  Thank you to all who donated cakes and everyone who came along to purchase them.

Earlier in the year, all classes planted daffodil bulbs, in aid of the Marie Curie Cancer Care Charity.  Hedgehogs bulbs have already shot up, and are being well cared for.  This is a fund raising event, so watch this space to find out how much is collected by our School.

Our older children in Years 5 and 6 were delighted this week to be provided with a "Common Room" space where they can relax, chat and play games.  As a reward for good behaviour, during their lunch break, Foxes and Badgers children will be allowed to make use of Deer classroom, where there is a range of games and equipment that they have been trusted to use sensibly!

Next week is half term holiday week, so please enjoy the break, and your children!
