CANVEY READS

Although the snow interrupted the week, all the Canvey Schools enjoyed participating in this whole Island Project.  The final event was a ‘Spies and Mysteries’ dress-up day.  Aimee John, Stanley Dawkins, Ella Wilkin and Sydney Williams really enjoyed helping at the ‘Grab a book’ event at the Knightswick Centre.

WEDO

A group of Year 5 children went with Mr Ridley and Miss Buckle to William Read to model the Lego WeDo Science and Computing Programme.  They worked with Year Two children helping them under-stand the life cycle of frogs.  A follow up session will take place next term.

PANCAKE TOSSING

READING CAFÉS

Once again our reading cafés have been incredibly well supported.  Thank you and thank you to the kitchen for their never ending supply of cakes.

YEAR 3 TRIP

To support their bronze age to iron age work, Year 3 really enjoyed their visit to Hadleigh Roundhouse.  They participated in an archaeological dig, made clay pots and took part in warrior school.

DEANES

A small group of Year 4 children really enjoyed participating in a sports festival where they experienced a range of activities.  Their favourite activity was the obstacle course.

VOLLEYBALL COMPETITION

Congratulations to our sitting volleyball team!  They participated in a competition at Garons Park, Southend and came a magnificent third.

MATHS COMPETITION

Well done to Jamie Harvey, Stephanie Forster, Sophie Roberts and Reanna Parkes-Baird who represented the school so well in a recent mathematics competition.

Y2 SPACE TOPIC

Year 2 really enjoyed a ‘space’ visitor who brought a pop up planetarium.  They all went inside and learnt about the stars and constellations.  It was a very exciting experience.

MUSIC CONCERT

What a wonderful evening we all had.  Year Two treated us to some of the songs they were going to be performing at the Infant Music Festival.  The Chamber Choir goes from strength to strength and performed to a very high standard for primary aged children.  Our musicians both individual and groups demonstrated the huge improvements they have made since September.  Well done to all of them especially our soloists Thomas, Scott, Baylan, Michaela, Heidi Rose, Hollie, Jayden, Millie, Hallie and Stephanie.

BOOK FAIR

Thank you everyone who supported the book fair.  The huge amount of books purchased gave us over £600 worth of commission to purchase books.

INFANT MUSIC FESTIVAL

Our Year 2 choir represented the school magnificently at this annual event at Runnymede Hall.  They had worked hard to learn the words for all the communal songs and had even written their own song for our individual item.

YEAR 6 VISIT TO HARRY

POTTER WORLD

Despite the very early start, Year 6 had an amazing day!  The visit will be used as the stimulus for their unit of writing as part of their Year 6 SATs assessments.  One of the many highlights of the day was visiting the Forbidden Forest.

KEY STAGE ONE CLUBS

Next term KS1 clubs will run in June, the first four weeks after May half term.  Reception children will also be able to attend.  The list of clubs running will be sent home at the beginning of May.
