On Thursday the 7th July the whole school had the opportunity to learn a new dance with Sophie, our visiting expert. The children were taught the Samba and thoroughly enjoyed themselves!
Sports Day 2016 – Thursday 30th June
Sports day dawned cloudy and grey but that did not dampen anyone’s spirits! It turned out to be a pleasantly warm morning with the rain holding off until later in the day. All of the children showed a real sense of sportsmanship and encouraged and cheered each other. A lovely morning with blue team the overall winner. We hope you enjoy looking through our photos.
Food and Farming Fun!
On the 8th June 2016, children from year 4, 5 and 6 attended the annual Food and Farming Day at Writtle College. We all had a fantastic time and the weather was good. The children were a real credit to the school and had a lot of fun.
Some of the children's comments...
Toby Pates from year 6 said...
"Did you know that lots of your favourite foods come from a pig? Things like yoghurt, beer, marshmallows and more come from the pink snorting animal that lives on a farm!"
Isobel Bunyan from year 6 said...
"This trip was nice for all the children, they learnt lots of facts and had fun."
Summer Bowen from year 5 said...
"I can't wait for next years fantastic food and farming trip!"
Rosie Dickason from year 5 said...
"It was good that you could stroke the animals and see how they react in their own environment."
World Book Day - 3rd March 2016
A fantastic parade of characters appeared in school today! We had Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, Superman, Ironman, characters from Alice in Wonderland and a whole host of others. Everyone looked fabulous and we all enjoyed sharing our favourite stories.
ROYAL OPERA HOUSE - ROMEO AND JULIET
On the 22nd September 2015, children from class 2 and class 3 went to the Royal Opera House in London to see the ballet, Romeo and Juliet.
It was a fantastic opportunity to see a truly classical ballet, the performance was amazing and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Their behaviour was impeccable and they were all a real credit to the school.
Many thanks to Mrs Brown for making it possible for us!!
The children were mesmerised by the performance and had some lovely things to say about their day.
Have a look at our children’s comments and our photos.
“It was amazing. I couldn’t believe how good they were at ballet. When I saw the orchestra playing it sounded brilliant. There were trombones, harps, drums and a lot more!”
“The ballet made me feel happy and want to watch it again. My best bit was when Juliet was doing all of her ballet moves. My favourite dance that she did was when she was on her tip toes and walked back.”
“The performance astonished me as it was truly spectacular and must have taken a lot of practise. My favourite part of the performance was how well they did the sword fights as they danced and twirled whilst swinging and swaying their swords. I think it was a five star ballet that was really worth seeing!”
“Our seats were amazing, we were front row and the view was incredible. There was gold everywhere you looked, there were no words for how brilliant it looked. The dancing was outstanding, the acting was fabulous and it made me feel special because I was watching something the Queen had watched, it was honestly the best experience of my life!”
