House Sport: It was a very close finish to the summer house sport challenge. After each year group in KS1 and 2 had competed in two competitions each the points were added up and amazingly two houses were tied on 775 points. Therefore we had to look back and see which house had won the highest number of actual wins in each individual competition. This meant that Burnham were crowned the overall winners just pipping Swakeleys to the title with Tavistock and Sussex in third and fourth respectively. The children have enjoyed taking part in the competition which has been supported by using some of our PE Premium Funding which pays for coaches to organise and run the tournaments and organise the schedule. Well done to all those who took part.
House Competition: This was another close competition with just over 100 points between the top two. The winning house for 2017 are Burnham who amassed 10,693 points over the year. They saw off Sussex in second place with Swakeleys and Tavistock in third and fourth place respectively. Burnham will duly have their name added to the winners’ board at the front of the school.
Attendance: I’m pleased to report that 167 pupils across the school achieved 100% attendance for the summer term. In addition 66 pupils did not have a day off for the whole school year. All of these children received a certificate in recognition of this achievement. Beating everyone though is Charlotte in Year 6 who has managed six consecutive years of 100% attendance. She last had a day off when she was in Reception. This too was recognised in assembly today with a certificate and a gift voucher. The class with the best attendance for the year were class 2JG with 97.6% attendance. They have won a class treat for September. 4H were in second place and RB were third so well done to them too.
