Year 4 see Cinderella

On Thursday 7th November 2019, Year 4 had the utterly magical experience of seeing ‘Cinderella’ at the Palace Theatre. We were mesmerised by the music, costumes and especially the magic! We all booed at the evil step sisters and the step mother because they were quite horrible to Cinderella! We all laughed at Lionel, the Prince’s friend, because he was doing lots of funny things like jumping as if he was a monkey.

We were worn out but it was so worth it!

Year 3 visit Hadleigh Roundhouse

The Year 3 children really enjoyed their trip to Hadleigh Roundhouse; the day was full off exciting learning. When we arrived we were greeted by our leaders, Denise and Claire.

Yr 5&6 attend SPSSA tag Rugby Tournament

Years five and six attended the SPSSA tag rugby tournament at Southend Rugby Club. We played three games in total, had lots of fun and grew in confidence throughout the day! We played for each other and helped one another to achieve our goals. We scored some magical tries by working together and supporting each other. We didn’t end the day victorious but we had an amazing time playing a sport which is all about respect and team work.

Year 5 visit Focal Point

In October, Year 5 were given the opportunity to visit local gallery Focal Point, which is situated next to the library in Southend. The classes, Swordfish and Sea turtle, took part in two different workshops in response to the exhibition of paintings by Liz Arnold and art pieces by Maria Farrar and Samara Scott The workshops were run by professional artists Louise and Pippa, but first the children had a chance to look at the show and discuss the work, the role of the gallery and how the exhibitions were set up with the curator Laura. Swordfish’s workshop was inspired by the paintings of Liz Arnold. The children explored pattern and colour, designing their own beetle – one of the motifs foun
