Welcome to Burton End Primary Academy
We are proud of the facilities we provide for the children of our local community. The Academy grounds are extensive and include two separate playgrounds, a large sports field, a trim trail, a wild-life pond, a large climbing frame, a variety of seating areas as well as fruit trees and a nature area. The building itself consists of 14 large classrooms and a nursery, a class-size computer suite, two spacious halls, various small group teaching spaces and a well-stocked library. Our academy is spacious and flexible enabling us to hold a variety of events such as concerts, art exhibitions, sports events and parent meetings. We are continually striving to improve the learning environment for our children and our focus in the current academic year is to further develop our outside learning areas so that all year groups can benefit from extending their knowledge and experience of the wonders of nature and outdoor physical activity.

Year 2 Share afternoon
For our topic this term, Jetting Off, each Year 2 class has been learning about different countries. 2C has been learning about Australia and 2G Mexico. We invited our families in to take part in art activities and to sample some of our baking.
In 2C we created Aboriginal dot paintings and our families helped to bake batches of Aztec cookies. We shared our learning including knowing Christmas is in the middle of the summer in Australia.
KS2 Sports Day Postponed
The KS2 sports day has been postponing until the afternoon of Monday 27th June, weather permitting.. Please arrive in time for a 1pm start. The event will conclude at 3pm. We will keep you upto date if there are any changes to these details.

your children have taken part in this half term.
This extended newsletter contains lots of lovely

All children have worked extremely hard this
half term but I would especially like to say a big
Letter From Our Head of School
I hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable bank holiday – the Easter break seems a long way off already. It is good to see all the children back at school at this very important time of year.
All our children and staff have been working hard to prepare for the various assessments and tests this term. Your support and encouragement is much appreciated.
Year 6 SATs take place next week and I know teachers and children alike are looking forward to the special breakfasts we put on each morning. By Thursday the tests will be complete and children can get back to enjoying normal lessons once again.
