National Dessert Day

Thanks to Mr Porter and his catering team for the yummy desserts today: Ramet’s Rocky Road, Porter’s Pineapple Upside Down Cake with Collins’ Custard, Randalls’ Raspberry Ripple Icecream Roll & Baker’s Banoffee Pie. The ice-cream and banoffee proved to be the most popular choices, with over 300 pupils enjoying a school dinner.

Year 5/6 Football Team

The Year 5/6 Football team competed in their first festival last night and played incredibly well. They won 2 games, drew 1 and only lost 1 game. This resulted them in coming 3rd overall. Well done boys.

Si the Skweez

We were very fortunate to have a real musician in assembly today to help children appreciate this month’s music theme, TV & Film Music. Si played his digital accordion to demonstrate how melodies and other musical features are used to hook the viewer.

Children had a great time guessing the film/TV programme and clapping along to Pirates of the Caribbean, Peppa Pig and more.

Wickford Foodbank

To coincide with Harvest, we collected food and toiletries to donate to our local foodbank to help families in our community. Thank you.

Local Library Visits

Classes in upper school have started to visit Wickford Library. Children displayed our school values walking to and from and inside the library, and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience of using their library cards to take fiction and non-fiction books home.

 

Year 3 Artwork

Andy Goldsworthy uses the natural environment – and ONLY the natural environment- to build deceptively simple works of engineering art.

Today, Year 3 blended the outdoor classroom with the indoor classroom to use natural materials to construct Goldsworthy inspired sculptures. They spent the afternoon creating their masterpieces. Mr Baker managed to visit at the end and tell 3YF just how determined they had been to create such wonderful pieces of artwork! Well done 3YF!

Year 2 Trip – Local Community Walk

Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed their community walk around the local area yesterday afternoon. It was the first trip outside of school for the children and they did a superb job of upholding the school values in the local community! The children used their Ordnance Survey maps to locate local amenities and use the mapping skills they had learnt in class, in real life!

The children also discovered the conservation area at the end of the Upper School field and when we arrived back in class, we spotted just how big the area is and how close it is to both the High Street and the railway line!

Well done, Year 2! We are very proud of you!

Year 6 Sports Day
