For Your Attention

10 May 2017

Fidget Spinners!
I have been beaten down by the ‘Fidget Spinner’ craze by my own children, and those at the school!
Policy: We do not object to children bringing their Fidget Spinners to school, however, they do this with your permission and if they are lost or damaged, we do not accept any liability. They are to use them at playtimes and lunchtimes only.
I am now practising my skills using a Fidget Spinner!!!! I’m getting quite good!

29 March 2017

There is an amendment to menus note in the book bags tonight. The menus have also been updated on the website. Thank you

25 January 2017

Menu order forms will be in the book bags tonight. There will be a change to Monday 30 January’s meal to celebrate Chinese New Year. Please return menu order forms to school by Friday 27 January. Thank you


Thank you to everyone who has donated to the toy and selection box appeal for the Hull Batman Children in Care collection. He is going to visit our school to collect them on the 5th December, so if all donations can be handed in by then.

Decorations Days are going really well and the children have made some lovely things along with their parents. It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Thank you for attending our book fair. We raised over £250 to spend on books for the children, which is fantastic!! We really do appreciate your continued support.

We will be holding our Scholastic book fair starting Wednesday 21st September 2016 every night after school for a week. This will be held straight after school in the Hall. There are lots of lovely books on sale which will make ideal Christmas presents. The school receives commission for holding the fair which we can then spend on books so this is a fantastic opportunity to get some nice books for the children to read.

Roald Dahl Day

Tuesday 13th September 2016

We are inviting everyone to take part in the Roald Dahl Challenge!

Wear one or more items of school uniform backwards—Roald Dahl loved jokes!

We have had a lovely day today at The Big Sing at Bridlington Spa. The children thoroughly enjoyed the singing and then onto the beach for various ball games and activities!!

Reminder that Thursday is the end of term assembly at 10am – everyone welcome! The Easter Egg raffle will be drawn so make sure you have your tickets!!!

Sports Relief on Friday, letters in book bags today. Children to come in sports clothing and a voluntary donation of £1 which will go to Sports Relief. Please make sure the children have suitable shoes as we will be doing a sports carousel in the afternoon and if the weather is fine, this will involve outdoor activities. Also, please make sure the children bring their water bottles. Thank you for your co-operation with these events.

Parents Evening will take place on Monday 14th March 2016. We will send letters out nearer the time to let you know when the time sheet slots will be available.

Reminder that Tempest Photography will be in school on Thursday morning to do the class photographs. Parents who have Nursery children who do not attend in a morning, can bring the child into school for the photograph at 9.00am and take them home straight afterwards. The rest of the school will go with their classes so parents do not need to attend.

Y6 Sports Hall Athletics Final

On Tuesday 23rd February the Y6 students travelled to Longcroft School in Beverley to take part in the final of the Sports Hall Athletics. Burstwick formed a joint team with Paull School and were one of only 5 teams to make it to the final. Despite some terrific performances  Burstwick/Paull came in fifth, losing out to generally much larger schools.
Despite not winning, a great time was had by all.
