Borough Sports

On Wednesday 21st June, 58 children attended the Group 2 Borough Sports competition at Garon Park. After an excellent start with our sprinters and long distance runners winning their races, we then went on to win many of the field events. Our team came second in the field competition and first in the track. Therefore they were the overall winners! Thank you to every single child who took part and gained us points towards our victory. The children supported each other and there were comments from other schools about the exemplary behaviour of our children. We look forward to those children who came 1st and 2nd in their events performing again at the super sports competition on the 4th an

Boys' and Girls' cricket competition

On Monday, nine Year 6 boys played in the boys' cricket competition at Garon park. There were 15 schools involved. We started quite nervously and played Blenheim school and narrowly lost by 11 runs. We then played Fairways school (they finished 3rd overall) and unfortunately lost. The standard this year was extremely high! We played friendly games in the afternoon where we were very successful, beating Earls Hall by 106 runs! (It was a shame we hadn't played like that earlier!) On Tuesday nine Year 6 girls played in the cricket competition at Garon park. We played in very hot conditions to beat Bournemouth Park and Porters Grange and we then played Temple Sutton in the quarter finals whi

British Nutrition Foundation Healthy Eating Week

t has been the British Nutrition Foundation Healthy Eating Week this week. To mark the occasion, we have had a free fruit giveaway! One child per class has helped to prepare a range of fruits and vegetables to share with their class. This has not only raised the profile of healthy eating but has given the children a chance to try something new.

Quick sticks hockey Essex finals

Wow, what a week of sport we have had! On Wednesday, six Year 6 children were invited to play in the quick sticks hockey Essex finals held at Chelmsford Hockey Club. There were 22 schools present, it was extremely hot and we were the only school representing Southend. In the morning we played schools called Barnes Farm, Cathedral, Mildmay B, Westlands and Moulsham. We didn't lose a single game and we finished top of our group. We re-grouped in the afternoon and played Mildmay A drawing 1-1 and then we lost our first game to last year's winners, St Thomas's from Brentwood. We still had one more game to play against Perryfields which we won 5-0 to place us in the silver medal position! A fan

Book group chat to Christopher Edge

This half term book group have been reading some fantastic books. We particularly enjoyed reading the latest release from author Christopher Edge titled ‘The Jamie Drake Equation’. This is an exciting book about the adventures of a boy whose father is on a mission in space – who happens to make contact with an alien through his mobile phone! We had also read his previous book ‘The Many Worlds of Albie Bright’ and thought that this was fantastic too. In book group we read a different book every fortnight and discuss the books that we read together. We also carry out a fun activity related to the book each week. As we have enjoyed his books so much, Christopher Edge kindly agreed to answer so

Year three make maritime flags

For the last 2 to 3 weeks the year 3 children have been in stitches producing their maritime communication flags! To start the process, we looked at actual maritime flags and the messages they conveyed. The children were then inspired to create their own maritime message and accompanying flag design. The children demonstrated their skills by practising various stitches, producing a paper pattern of their design, cutting out fabric pieces and then sewing them together. The children really enjoyed the task and learned many new skills and techniques along the way. The task is now all sewn up and completed flags are on display in the classrooms.
