Events and achievements

Bridge Building

Burrator Class

Burrator Class investigated bridges and learnt about Isambard Kingdom Brunel, a famous Victorian engineer as part of their design technology work. Pupils considered the most effective structures and worked as a team to plan and create their own bridges, which they then evaluated.

Burrator's Victorian Day

Burrator Class Curriculum enrichment

To experience what it was like being a Victorian school child, Burrator Class pupils dressed and behaved in the same way as Victorian school children. The day was filled with activities that Victorian children would have carried out, including practising handwriting and learning times tables.

Advent and Christmas Prayer Space

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education

For the past few weeks of Advent, small groups of pupils have been visiting the School Chapel to take part in a special Advent and Christmas Prayer Space. There were a variety of activities to be completed, including thinking about things you are thankful for, reflecting on your dreams and writing something you are sorry for. Pupils commented positively on being able to participate in such a peaceful and calming experience during what is always a very busy time of year.

Handbells

Burrator Class Community events Curriculum enrichment

A local handbell group came into school to work with Burrator Class. They performed some traditional Christmas carols and allowed the pupils to play the handbells. The carols performed included Jingle Bells and Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. This was a very inspiring opportunity for many of the pupils and it is hoped that the school may also be able to develop its own handbell group as so many of the children were enthusiastic to continue to practice their new skills.
