Previous Update



A group of Year five pupils spent a day      at Cornelius Vermuyden School being     trained in public speaking.  They took part in a range of tasks and will use these skills to prepare a speech to present to the rest of our school.  They will then be judged by a panel of teachers who will choose two to represent the school in a competition against speakers from other schools in    December.


As part of attendance and Well-being week, all the children will participate in a relaxation session with Bonnie.  We were pleased that so many parents were able to attend the parents session.  Thanks to the children who were in the demonstration group.

Our environment ambassadors represented the school at the Big Local open meeting.  They have been working with Miss Goldsmith and some parents to put in a bid to improve the pond area.  Thanks to Elsie Jennings, Michaela Calder, Stanley Dawkins, Sydney Williams, Franco Rathbone and Ella Wilkin who attended during the evening.


Twelve Key Stage Two children enjoyed travelling to Deanes to participate in a multi-skills Festival.


As part of their London topic, Year Two have enjoyed working together to make models representing London landmarks.  Rebecca Harris our local member of Parliament visited the school just before half term.  She was so impressed with the models she photographed them and they are now used on her Facebook page.

The models were then used as part of a Great Fire of London inspiration day led by the KIT Theatre Company.  Year Two     enjoyed an amazing day and the highlight was travelling back to 1666 in the time machine.  The models are now on display around the school for us all to enjoy.


The ever improving teams have continued to train hard and have played matches against Canvey Juniors.  The boys team drew 1–1 and the girls team won 2-0.
