Still life art

Year 5 have been working hard gaining new skills in their art lessons.

They have been progressing from sketching, to painting with water colours. The results have been fantastic and the children are very proud of their work!

Inappropriate Computer Games

Some teachers have raised some serious concerns about children playing computer games that are unsuitable for their age.

Could we please remind parents and carers to ensure they are aware of the content of the computer games that their children are playing? Sometimes language and games in the playground have been influenced by computer games rated for children aged over 12 (or 16 and 18).

The symbols below are designed to assist parents and carers when ensuring their children are not exposed to inappropriate content in their computer games.

We appreciate your support with this. If you have any further questions please feel free to speak to a member of staff or children can speak to their e-cadet representative.

Attendance

Last week was a better week for attendance at The Flying Bull Academy with 96.7%!

There were two outstanding classes with 6G and 1B both achieving 100% attendance.

We had 10 classes with an attendance rate of over 96%, well done.

Let’s keep it up!

Eurovision Focus Day

Today we have another very special Focus Day, centred around the history and tradition of the Eurovision Song Contest.  To kick the day off, the children were treated to a performance of ABBA’s “Waterloo” by some very special guests!

There was also a quick Eurovision quiz contest between a group of pupils and our very own Mr Hewett-Dale!  Look at him hard at work:

But unfortunately he was unable to beat our magnificent students!  Look out for more photos throughout the day.
