Here are a selection of photographs from both the Infant disco and Junior disco!
We had a great day exploring Colchester Castle with lots to see and do. We were able to discover even more about the Romans through the activities and wonderful selection of artefacts. The staff at the castle told us all about the Roman invasion and Boudicca’s revolt. When we went down into the Roman vaults under the castle It felt like we had gone on a journey going back in time two thousand years!
Our World Book Day 2018 celebrations were brilliant fun. Everyone dressed up as their favourite book characters and they looked amazing! Here we have Squirrel class modelling their costumes with a few pictures from our school assembly and the staff too! It was great finding out about new characters from books that we might like to read now. Well done to everyone, what a great day!
We had a brilliant visit to Hill Farm in Gestingthorpe yesterday. There was some snow but that didn’t stop our fun! Mr Cooper shared many of the fascinating Roman artefacts that have been found there with us. We also got to visit the site of where a Roman villa once stood.The children impressed us with all their Roman knowledge that they were able to recall and great behaviour too. A great morning!
This year, Shrove Tuesday falls during our February half term break, so we celebrated, with our traditional pancake assembly and race, a week early! Congratulations go to Oak house who won the coveted ‘Blue Pan’ in style and of course to Mrs Nichols who managed a record beating 61 pancake tosses! Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy …
On Friday, the children in Squirrels and Muntjacs were lucky enough to take part in an Indian drumming workshop, run by Essex Music Services. The children all took to the rhythm, beat and structure of this new genre of music brilliantly! Thank you to Dan from Essex Music services for leading the classes.
Last week, Muntjacs and Squirrels traveled to Holy Trinity Primary School in Halstead to take part in an important workshop about staying safe online. The children learnt a lot about privacy settings, appropriate use of the internet and online gaming. The key message from the workshop was to TALK to a trusted adult, if you are upset about something that has happened online. If parents want to find out more about how to help keep their child safe online, then visit: http://www.esafetytraining.org/apps/blog/ or https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/parental-controls/
On Monday 4th December we revealed our Advent Window! It has a tree theme this year which was made from hand prints, beautiful Christmas tree decorations and brightly wrapped presents. We are especially proud of our stained glass window that shows the Nativity scene. This was another whole school effort which we all thoroughly enjoyed being a part of. Thank you to everybody who came to watch the grand reveal-and enjoy some mince pies and mulled wine!
The Christmas season has truly begun!
