Burrator Class (2017-2018)

 

Burrator was a Year 4/5 class which had 27 pupils and was taught by Mrs Sian Kingdon.

Burrator planning and newsletter Autumn term

Year 4 Residential

Heatree House

The Spring Term drew to a close for Year 4 children with their annual residential.  Once again we returned to Heatree House, this year taking over the whole venue as we were joined by other Year 4 pupils from Blackpool, Lady Seawards and Westcliff Primaries, (just some of the schools from across the First Federation).  During their stay children tried their hand at archery, 'high ropes' and 'adventure challenge' to name but a few!  They returned thoroughly exhausted having had an amazing time!

Burrator have been working with their buddies in Haytor.  We read stories, found out lots of information about each other and practised catching a ball.
