Our 'Perfect Presentation' Showcase
Have you noticed our 'Perfect Presentation' display cabinet in the main corridor at school?
It is positively popping with pride displaying the children's work from across the school, chosen by their class teacher.
Each piece of work selected is displayed for the children, teachers, staff, visitors and parents/carers to admire and be inspired by that week.
Not only that, but the children who have their work displayed, receive a special Presentation Certificate to acknowledge the high standard of work they have achieved that week.
Make sure if you're visiting school, you take a look at the fantastic work produced by our children.

School Council Visit to Great Sankey High School
Thursday 10th October
By Zitong and Hiba
Today, we were privileged enough to represent our School Council and attended a meeting at Great Sankey High School with all the school councillors in our Omega Mat Academy Trust. We took part in activities that helped bring the team together. Also, during the meeting, we discussed various projects for our community and how to improve our schools. We mentioned about having an anti-bullying pledge and events that could help raise money for charities. We will update you after our next meeting at Burtonwood Primary School, Monday 11th November..
Self-esteem is the focus for our Art Week. Each child in their class will be producing a 'positive mood board' based on things that each child holds important to them (family, friends, hobbies, food etc).
Monday 14th October
The morning began using inking techniques to create a colour-wash on an A3 sheet of parchment paper. Each child chose their own colour to achieve the technique.
Reception have colour-washed their sheets, as have Year 6.
Year 5 have been researching famous artists around the world to inspire their choice of medium.
Year 4 are adopting a collage approach for the background of their positive mood boards.
Tuesday 15th October
Today saw a plethora of very creative activities taking place throughout school.
Year 6 focused on choosing amazing words to describe themselves (using dictionaries and thesauruses), printing them off and decorating their chosen words with different media.
Year 5 used skills of symmetrical drawing, creating self portrait pencil drawings.
Year 4 oozed with positivity, writing their favourite song lyrics onto a CD (there was lots of singing involved).
Year 3 demonstrated fine motor skills using poster paint to paint their rainbows.
Year 2 was a hive of activity as they chose and cut out powerful words that encourage positivity.
Mr Moore visited all year groups and was delighted with the skills, ideas and creativity shown by our children.

Wednesday 16th October
Another day packed with art skills and techniques!
In Year 1, the children chose two of their favourite colours and used oil pastels to draw something that was special to them. After that, they used water colours to enhance their boards.
They used different materials and glue to make a collage of their names.
In Year 6, the children used a clear laminated sheet to write a special memory on. There were fantastic examples of beautiful, heartwarming writing.

Thursday 17th October
The penultimate day of Art Week and our children have demonstrated the ability to use a whole range of skills.
In Year 5, they have been sewing their names and initials onto different fabrics. Some children have used mono-printing to achieve different pattern designs. Others have mixed paints to achieve a desired colour.
Reception are exceptionally proud of their cutting, sticking and glueing skills. Look what they have produced so far...
