Thank You!

posted 9 Dec 2019, 04:45 by Website Admin

I would like to say a big thank you to all of the PTA who volunteered and the children, parents and families who helped to make our Christmas Bazaar such a success. We raised a terrific amount of money and so the school can now afford to buy a new writing shed for the EYFS outdoor classroom to replace the one that had rotted and fallen to pieces earlier this year. We also now have two new welly sheds for the EYFS and Year 1 children to replace the racks which are not so easy to use. Without your support, we would not be able to afford to buy amazing resources like this that really benefit the children’s learning. In the New Year, and once the access ramp to the school is sorted, the PTA will be able to fund our new greenhouse and other exciting projects that we have in the pipeline too!

Magical Maths Week

posted 22 Nov 2019, 09:30 by Website Admin

The children have all been enjoying Magical Maths this week as part of our annual Maths Week. We started off with a visit from Maths Magician Tony on Monday. He wowed the children with some fantastic magic tricks and taught the children how to do some of their own. These were all linked to the maths learning that the children had been doing in their classrooms. Hopefully some of the older children were able to show you some magic maths tricks at home. Later in the week the children all paired up with another class to share their maths learning.

Yr 6 London Visit

posted 16 Nov 2019, 04:36 by Website Admin

On Wednesday, Year 6 had a very long day as they ventured out on their 12 hour visit to the capital city. After a bus tour through central London, their first stop was at the Houses of Parliament. The children were able to look around both the House of Commons and the House of Lords as well as the Queen's Robing Room and Westminster Hall. They learned all about UK democracy and how the country is run.

 

The next stop was across Westminster Bridge (with a quick stop on the bridge to look at the London skyline) and into London Sea Life Aquarium. The children were fascinated with the large array of marine and fresh-water sea life and their personal tour guide was able to answer all of their questions. This was the perfect fabulous finish to the children's topic, Awesome Oceans.

The PTA really need your help! We are holding a non-uniform day at the school on Friday 29th November. To take part, all your child has to do is bring in an item for our Christmas Bazaar. We would like children in Years 5 & 6 to bring a bottle of something to drink (any alcohol or glass bottles to be handed to the office), Years 3 & 4 to bring in packets of sweets and EYFS , Year 1 and Year 2 some chocolates (preferably with no nuts please). 

 

We would also be very grateful of any donations of books for the book stall and prizes for the raffle. In addition, we would be very grateful for any donation of homemade or bought cakes to be brought in on the day of the Bazaar.


Year 6 Bikeability

posted 8 Nov 2019, 06:25 by Website Admin

24 children from Year 6 took part in Bikeability this week. They all worked very hard learning all about how to ride on the road safely, navigation and maintaining their bicycles. Bikeability can not only help make children better cyclists, it also helps their general confidence and indepdent thinking. The children will be awarded with their level 1 or level 2 badges and certificates in a few weeks during celebration assembly.

Poppy Appeal

As in previous years we will be supporting the poppy appeal.  Poppies are available from the school.  We respectfully request a minimum donation of 20p per poppy to help this very worthwhile cause.  In addition, we have a poppy shop selling friendship bracelets, pencils, rulers, sharpeners, reflectors and rubbers etc. priced from 20p to 50p.  These will be available to children at break times, after the half term break.

We Are Fundraising for BBC Children in Need

posted 25 Oct 2019, 10:13 by Website Admin

Last week, our school council voted on which two charities we would support this year. They chose BBC Children in Need and Purple Pinkie for Polio. On Friday 15th November, all of the children will be taking part in the BIG MORNING MOVE Challenge in their classrooms to help raise money for BBC Children in Need. The children will be getting active as they take part in a live stream delivered by Joe Wicks as part of the BBC Children in Need School Challenge. We would like each child to donate £1 to take part and help us raise money. However, if you think you might be able to raise more money for this excellent cause, why not collect a sponsor form from the school office and get as many of your friends and  family to sponsor your child to take part in the challenge? Sponsor forms and money raised needs to be sent into school by Friday 15th November. 

Parking at the Recreation Ground

posted 25 Oct 2019, 10:11 by Website Admin

I have now heard from the North Essex Parking Partnership Group who have confirmed that they will allow users of our parking permits access to the Recreation Ground carpark for free, for the purpose of picking up and dropping off to the school between the hours of 7.45am and 5.15pm. This is slightly more restrictive than before, but these times will cover pick up and drop off from 15 minutes before breakfast club starts and 15 minutes after our last after school club finishes. They will ensure their enforcement team are aware of this arrangement.
