UPDATE   Jan    2019

FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE

Year 1 have been learning about Florence Nightingale.  They thoroughly enjoyed a visitor who took the part of Florence and led them through a series of activities related to her life and work.

SWIMMING LESSONS

Year 4 have been enjoying their weekly swimming sessions at Waterside Leisure Centre.  Already the children are becoming more confident in the water.

COLCHESTER CASTLE

Year 4 had a really enjoyable and informative visit to Colchester Castle.  This was to support their topic work on Romans.

YEAR 5 BAKE OFF TRIALS

In February a team from year 5 will be competing in a ‘Bake off’ at Castle View School.  In order to pick a team, trials were held where the children had the opportunity to show off their skills in a range of tasks.  Thank you to our ‘Master Baker’ volunteers who came in to help.

GIRLS FOOTBALL

The girl’s team played two matches during January.  They enjoyed playing an excellent match against Lubbins which finished in a 1-1 draw.  Having reached the quarter finals of the Essex County Cup, they narrowly lost to a very strong side from Fairways Primary School, Leigh-on-Sea.  Congratulations to the team for reaching the last eight in this prestigious competition.

BOYS FOOTBALL

On the coldest afternoon of the winter, the boys played a league game against Lubbins.  They played really well and won comfortably in a game, played in great spirit by both teams.

DANCE FESTIVAL

The annual festival was held at the Palace Theatre, Southend.  Our cheerleaders and a group of year 6 pupils enjoyed performing on the stage.  The performances were enjoyed by the audience of other participating schools.  Parents and families were invited into school for a special viewing on Friday.

STAFF NEWS

Mrs Whiston will be starting her maternity leave at half term.  After her successful surgery, Mrs Hull will be returning at the end of February.

YEAR 2 AUSTRALIA DAY

Year 2 children celebrated Australia Day by participating in a range of activities.  It was lovely to see so many parents at their special assembly and joining in the dancing with such enthusiasm.

O2 CONCERT

30 of our year 5 and 6 children joined other children performing at the Young Voices Concert at the O2.  As usual a thoroughly enjoyable evening for children and their families.
