Year 5 enjoy Stubbers

After an excitable coach journey, the children arrived at Stubbers around half past 5 on Wednesday evening. Not long after they had arrived, had they been organised into their tents and prepared their sleeping arrangements. The children were provided with their first of many delicious meals and listened carefully to a safety briefing from the Stubbers staff. Following dinner the children were entertained around the campfire by a variety of songs, many of which were recalled from a previous trip to Belchamps. ‘There was a bird’ was one of the favourites and was heard on a number of occasions over the two days! The children settled themselves into their tents for their first night camping and

Table Tennis Tournament

On Wednesday 28th September, four boys and four girls from the table tennis squad represented the school in the South East Essex Schools competition. Both the boys' and the girls' teams performed brilliantly in the group stage of the competition, convincingly winning all but one of their group matches.

Congratulations to all players for great play and sportsmanship throughout the

The children had a wonderful day gaining a wide experience of what life was like in Ancient Greece in preparation for their first Connected Curriculum topic. The children learnt a little bit of the Greek language, looked at the alphabet comparing it to ours and painted their name as it would be written in Greek. They learnt about the origins of the Olympics as a religious festival, and took part in some games. They discovered how the theatre we have today originated from the Ancient Greeks and designed their own m
