House Leaders

At Barnburgh Primary School we have four Houses and everyone who comes to our school becomes a member of one of them. Our four Houses are;

EINSTEIN HOUSE: 'You never fail until you stop trying'

HAWKING HOUSE: 'However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.'

TERESA HOUSE: 'Kind words are short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless.'

MANDELA HOUSE: 'The greatest glory in living lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fall.'

 

We have Captains and Vice Captains for each team who are elected into their role at the start of each year. Our current house captains are:

EINSTEIN HOUSE: Skye (Captain) Saffron (Vice Captain)

HAWKING HOUSE:  Harry (Captain) Pippa (Vice Captain)

TERESA HOUSE:  Lincoln (Captain) Ruby (Vice Captain)

MANDELA HOUSE:  Zoe (Captain) Jack (Vice Captain)

 

Every day children at our school work hard to be rewarded with House Points. At the end of every week the House Captains work out how many House Points each team has achieved and the winning House is announced in our Achiever's assembly. We keep a cumulative tally of the House Points and at the end of the year the House with the most House Points will win the trophy.

Any children who fill their House Point log receive a certificate in assembly and have the opportunity to exchange their log for a new book for their class library.

Finally, every week the class teachers do a House Point draw. All our house point tokens get placed together and the teacher draws one token from the pile. The child whose name is on the token enjoys a VIP experience by having dinner at the Top Table with the Headteacher and sitting on a chair next to their teacher during assembly.

Every half term the House Captains and Vice Captains organise a House Event to raise money for a chosen charity.

 

Barnburgh's Got Talent 2019

 

Our last House Event for this year was the famous Barnburgh's Got Talent. It was just as popular as ever this year with 30 acts auditioning from across school. The House Captains and Vice Captains invited these children to audition for them. The auditions were so good that we invited all the entrants to the Barnburgh's Got Talent Finals. We held a Mini Barnburgh's Got Talent on Tuesday 25th June at 10am for our Early Years entrants and then KS1 and KS2 Barnburgh's Got Talent on the same day after school. 

There were comedians, dancers, singers and musicians. It was a fabulous day with some great talent on show. 

Please watch the video below for all the auditions. Please see the images below of all the winners and 2nd places in each of the categories:

Foundation Stage

Key Stage 1

Lower Key Stage 2

Upper Key Stage 2

 

 

From all the auditions, each act received 5 house points, 30 house points for all the 2nd place acts and 50 house points for all the 1st place acts. This meant overall in this event Einstein won 85 points, Teresa won 100 house points, Mandela won 115 points and Hawking won a massive 155 points. Well done to everyone who auditioned!

Wear Purple for JIA day

 

On Friday 14th June, we held a fundraising event in school to raise money for JIA - at - NRAS. This is the Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) branch of the charity National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society. 

 

This was so special to us at Barnburgh Primary School as one of our youngest pupils in school is an advocate for this charity. Heidi Willis, in Reception, has raised over £800 already for this charity and received a special award at the Houses of Parliament. JIA is the most common type of arthritis in children. It causes inflammation in a child’s joints and can be very painful.

Every year, the charity runs this as a national event. We wore anything purple for the day…this could have been purple socks, a purple headband, a purple t-shirt or a full purple outfit. Purple hair and accessories were also allowed on this day.

We asked everyone who wore purple to kindly donate £1 to this worthy cause. Thank you to everyone who took part and donated. We raised £185. Thank you.

Pictures of the classes in purple can be found below.
