Explore Learning - Writing Competition

This year Explore Learning opened a writing competition across the country. The theme of the competition was 'Heroes' and the children's writing was judged by the famous author, David Walliams. Out of more than 10,000 entries, one of our Year 4 pupils here at Bannockburn managed to reach the final 10. 

As part of the prize, the school has received £500 worth of books!


Year 5 Homework - The Titanic

For this half term the Year 5 children have been learning about the Titanic. As part of this topic the children were given a variety of homework suggestions, one of which was to create a model of the famous liner. As you can see below, there have been some really great models created at home.


MW Achievement Assembly

Congratulations to all the children on the MW site who were recognised last week at Friday's Achievement Assembly.


KS2 Sports Day

On Tuesday 10th July the Key Stage 2 children went over to St Paul's Academy for Sports Day. Years 3 & 4 had their Sports day in the morning; Years 5 & 6 in the afternoon. The weather was warm but thankfully not too sunny.

It was great to see so many parents/carers come along and support the children.

Below is just a small selection of photos from Sports Day. To see the entire collection, please go to the 'Sport at Bannockburn' section inside the image gallery on the school website.

Y6 Skating Workshop

What an exciting day! Some specially selected Year 6 pupils have taken part in a Values Reward Event in recognition of our dedication to showing our school values both in and out of the classroom.

Today, we were treated to a skateboarding masterclass with three professional skateboarders. we loved wearing the special protective gear- we needed helmets, knee pads and elbow pads. It was a lot trickier than the pros made it look!
