BOYS CRICKET FESTIVAL
The boys cricket team enjoyed competing against other schools in a competition at Benfleet Cricket Club. They were complimented on their outstanding behaviour and sportsmanship.
GIRLS CRICKET FESTIVAL
The girls team also enjoyed the experience of competing against other schools. Their performance improved with every game and they ended up in third place.
Y3 SOUTHEND VISIT
‘Sunny Southend’ did not live up to its name. Despite the cloudy weather Year 3 really enjoyed their visit to Southend that included walking down the pier, a train ride back and visiting the life boat museum.
Y4 WRITTLE VISIT
Year Four had an enjoyable and educational visit to Writtle Agricultural College. They particularly enjoyed seeing all the animals and trying different foods.
Y2 BEACH TRIP
The sun shone for Year Two’s visit to the beach. They really enjoyed the day and have this week completed some amazing writing about their visit.
Rock band at Grovewood
Our ever improving rock band spent the day working with the rock band from Grovewood School in Rayleigh. They worked on several pieces together and then gave a performance to parents. We will all be able to enjoy our rock band at our ‘Woodstock’ and family creative afternoon on Tuesday 9th July.
ROUNDERS FESTIVAL AT DEANES
Year Six participated in a festival - this had to be rearranged due to the weather. All the extra practice they were able to fit in paid off and they played really well.
What an amazing performance from all the children as the sun shone for our annual outdoor assembly and family picnic!
56 children represented the school at the Southend Music Festival at the Cliffs Pavilion. This included an orchestra of 30 and a choir of 26. The choir sang beautifully and the orchestra accompanied several songs and played their individual pieces with great skill. Well done everyone!
CANVEY SINGING PROJECT
Children in Year 4 were joined for a day of singing with children from Canvey Juniors, William Read and Leigh Beck. They worked on several pieces that they will be performing at the community concert at the Paddocks on Tuesday 27th June.
We were treated to a wonderful concert by Year 3 and some of the children who have individual music lessons. We heard pieces on the piano, guitar and drums from Frankie, Ryan, Stanley A, Tyler, Jack, Michaela, Thomas, Dani, Liam, Daniel, Zack, Hollie and Stanley D. They all played with great confidence.
All of Year 3 played their recorders and sang beautifully. Well done!
YEAR 6 DICTIONARIES
Every year the Canvey Rotary Clubs present Year 6 with a dictionary. These were presented to the children just before half term. It was lovely in this electronic age to see how excited the children were and how they enjoyed looking through them. Thank you Canvey Rotary Club.
