YEAR 6 MENTORS

As part of our pastoral support programme, all our Year Six pupils have a member of staff assigned to them as a mentor for the year.  There was great excitement as the ‘pairings’ were revealed last week!

MACMILLAN FUNDRAISING

Thank you for supporting this worthwhile cause.  The children spent the afternoon in their new school family groups and had great fun icing and eating cakes whilst raising over £400.

SCHOOL COUNCIL CONFERENCE

We recently hosted the Canvey Schools School Council Conference.  A group of our newly elected school councillors were joined by councillors from other Canvey Schools (including both the secondary schools).  The focus of the morning was ‘what makes a good school councillor’.  The event concluded with all the participants enjoying a buffet lunch provided by our wonderful catering staff!

YEAR TWO LONDON TOPIC

‘London’ is this half terms project in Year Two.  They were delighted to be joined by ‘the Queen’ for their tea party.  It was a shame she couldn’t stay longer.

A huge thank you to Ryan’s Grandad Mark who brought his London Taxi in to show the children.  They were very interested in hearing about his job and enjoyed the experience of sitting in a London taxi.

YEAR 2 VISIT TO ST NICHOLAS CHURCH

Year 2 enjoyed walking to St Nicholas Church.  The children really appreciated Reverend Marion’s talk and behaved impeccably.

RECEPTION MEETINGS

We are really pleased with how the reception children have settled into full time school.  Thank you to all parents who were able to attend the reception curriculum meetings.

CLASSROOM VISIT

If you would like to see your child’s classroom you are welcome to come into school on Friday 4th October between 3 and 6.  Don’t forget to have a look at the pond and the MUGA!
