This video is dedicated to a recent Focus Day – World Challenge Day. It was made to inspire children to enjoy challenging themselves in sport, and to understand how to play as a team and stay fit and healthy. It was a great practice for Sports Day, which this year falls on Thursday 25th June.

If you have any information you can provide there is a form you can open and fill out by clicking HERE. Please return to the school office or email to:
Year 3 have been learning all about time. Here are some of today’s Lead Learners in 3R, supporting and teaching their groups how to understand and use the 24 hour clock. They are doing a fantastic job of working and learning together. Keep up the good work!
Attendance for the whole academy last week was bang on target with 96.0%! Can we strive for better?
The class with the winning attendance last week was 6F with 98.9%.
Well done and thank you to all pupils with an attendance rate of 96% and above. Remember to keep pushing! With good attendance over the remaining 5 weeks of term your child could move above the academy set target.
We would also like to thank all Parents/Carers for your continued support in increasing attendance at The Flying Bull Academy.
A big thank you to everybody who joined us on Saturday for the Flying Bull Academy Buckland Summer Fayre. We all had a wonderful time and hope you did too!
A reminder to those wanting to collect their photos with Elsa and Anna that they will be available from the meeting room by reception on Thursday morning.

The hall in the academy was buzzing on Tuesday morning as The Flying Bull Academy welcomed Puits Picard school from Caen, France.
Year 5 went to visit them in Caen at the beginning of the year and it was a delight to be able to welcome them to our academy as part of the exchange.
A team of staff, led by Mr Hewett-Dale(2), catered a fabulous cooked breakfast that was enjoyed by children from Puits Picard and from Flying Bull. Staff also made their way to the hall to feast on bacon butties, egg sandwiches and freshly baked scones.
After breakfast we shared a singing assembly where Puits Picard sung to us in French and we responded with some Flying Bull favourites!
Have a look at the photos….
