Year 3 and 4 Football Festival

Wind. Rain. Sunshine. We had it all this afternoon but the children carried on regardless, playing 5 games in all and winning four of those. A great team performance and fantastic representation for Burlington School.

Apple crumble ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ

Today we used some of the apples from our tree to make a crumble. We carefully used knives to cut the apple before cooking them. Next we got our hands dirty rubbing flour, butter and sugar together to make the crumble topping. Once it had cooled we enjoyed tasting it. It must have been good, as there is none left! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Goodbye Year 6

We have had a great week with our Year 6 children. They have had an amazing time exploring Patterdale trying new activities and today saw the Burlington tradition of a silly string fight and hair colouring. What a fantastic little group of children. Good luck on your next adventure!

We had our mountain walk yesterday which was fantastic. The children were out all day and did really well. Unfortunately the signal was not good so I was unable to share any pictures. Today the children are preparing to go canoeing. More photos to comeโ€ฆ

Year 6 Leavers

On Thursday 8th July we celebrated our special, splendid and smiley seven at St Cuthbertโ€™s Church. Sadly we could only invite parents of Year 6.

Our seven Year 6 pupils – who each leave with some Burlington magic – head off to John Ruskin, Dowdales or Ulverston Victoria in September. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported these amazing children. We will miss them.

We have had a fantastic start to our trip. So far the children have experienced some abseiling and investigating some caves with only candle light. We are now looking forward to meatballs for our evening meal.
