Bude Primary Academy Junior's Half Termly Celebration Bulletin
Summer Term 1 - Monday 17th April to Friday 26th May
End of term roundup with Mrs Askham
Welcome to the summer one edition of The Splash.
We've had a wonderfully full half term, jam-packed with learning experiences. The Splash really showcases the highlights from across the school, sometimes it's hard to believe everything featured here is from just 6 weeks.
Some of the highlights are taking part in the Bude Literary Festival, the wide range of school trips, our Wake and Shake assemblies on a Friday morning (lots of smiles and laughter during these!) and evidence of oracy continuing to develop such as in Crackington's class assembly.
We are so very lucky to have such fabulous children, families and staff here at Bude Juniors. What a wonderful community we are.
We would like to wish you a restful, sun-filled half term and look forward to welcoming you back on Tuesday 6th June.
Bude literary festival
This half term, Bude Juniors were lucky enough to take part in the Bude Literary festival. Year 3 and 4 enjoyed the company of Rob Pudner for an afternoon, he shared books and stories from his own childhood and the children had fun joining in with his games. Year 5 took part in an online comic book workshop with James Parsons; we were really impressed with their ideas and designs. Year 5 and 6 together had a secrets behind the scenes workshop with Susan Luciani. The children were captivated and left completely inspired. To round it off, Year 6 also had a hilarious workshop with John Hegley. Thank you to the Literary festival for providing these wonderful experiences for our pupils.
On Thursday 27th April, we invited Annie Vernon into school to lead aspirational assemblies for all year groups and some active workshops. The children learnt about Annie's journey and what it took to become a two-time World Champion rower a successful silver medallist at the 2008 Olympics. Annie was born in Truro, Cornwall and went to school in St Minever so it was lovely for the children to meet someone who has achieved such greatness who comes from our wonderful county of Cornwall.
