What fun all the children had as well as raising over £1,000 to pay for the children’s Christmas events.
YEAR 2 GREAT FIRE OF LONDON VISITOR
Year 2 were visited by relatives of Thomas Farriner (the baker in Pudding Lane where the Great Fire of London started). They participated in an interactive day about the events during this momentous occasion in London’s history.
CHILDREN IN NEED
We raised money for ‘Children in Need’ on Friday 13th November. The children and staff were all very comfortable coming to school for the day in their pyjamas. We raised over £500 which will go directly to the charity. Well done to all who contributed to this worthy cause.
A group of Year 5 cheerleaders participated in a virtual competition at Deanes School. They won the Key Stage 2 competition and will now go on to represent Castle Point and Rochford at the County Finals in March.
RECEPTION SELF ISOLATION
We were delighted to see our Reception children and staff back today. Well done for completing all your ‘home learning’ activities while you were at home. The teachers really enjoyed receiving all your work.
YEAR 5 NATURE PROJECT
Year 5 have been working on a nature friendly project in order to transform an area of outside space into a ‘Wellbeing Garden’ for all year groups to enjoy. The children have helped to clear the area, make bug hotels and bird feeders and look forward to planting trees and flowers in the next few weeks.
YEAR 2 FIREMAN VISIT
Year 2 enjoyed a visit from a local fireman. He talked about fire safety and also about the history of the Fire Brigade. Year 2 got the opportunity to create a bucket chain on the playground to put out an imaginary fire.
What fun we all had celebrating children and staff birthdays this week. A special thank you to the kitchen for providing the food and the staff who wrapped the presents.
