Greatest Showman Day

Following a term where the film, ‘The Greatest Showman’ has played a key part in Burrator’s curriculum, it seemed fitting that the children spent the majority of their Enterprise Project earnings on a Greatest Showman themed day complete with circus tent and magician!

Leavers' Mass

In line with tradition, Year 6 leavers led the end of year Mass for the whole school community.  Afterwards, there was a special cake for the pupils to enjoy.

Armada Ahoy!

Burrator pupils performed the play, ‘Armada Ahoy’, for parents/carers and the whole school community at the Leavers’ Assembly.  The children had  been introduced to the script during a Play in a Day Workshop, and then practised their parts for the next few days before presenting it to a packed audience.

Archaeological Dig

Dartmoor National Park Authority, through their Heritage Lottery Fund Project, “Moor than Meets the Eye” funded a community archaeological excavation at Widecombe-in-the-Moor.  Some pupils from Year 5 visited a medieval manor house, Glebe  Farm. As part of their outreach programme, pupils were asked to take part in three different activities; archaeological excavation, processing and learning about archaeological finds and a farm tour.

 

Problem solving

Pupils in Burrator have been taking part in a number of problem solving activities, including measuring and calculating angles and working as a team to complete a cup stacking challenge.
