15/9/2023 Welcome to our new Foundation children who started with us today
CIRCUS DAY 5/10
World Mental Health Day 10/10/23
On the 6th October 2023, 8 children from KS2 took part in a multi-skills event at Runwell Primary school. They got to try different activities such as kurling, boccia, speed stacks and archery. They all had a great time participating alongside children from other Wickford Schools.
Year 6 Residential
9-20th October 2023
What an amazing week Year 6 had on their residential! They overcame barriers and faced challenges head on, I am sure they will look back on this week and feel extremely proud of themselves. Their week was action packed with activities including canoeing, fencing, zip wire, raft building, Jacob’s ladder, coastal walk and giant swing. We were all so impressed by how they pushed themselves on each activity and encouraged their classmates. To view the photos of this week click on the group photo above.
On the 12th October 2023, 6 children from KS2 took part in a ten-pen bowling event at Hollywood Bowl in Basildon.
They had a great time playing alongside other schools and there were even some ‘strikes’!
Year 2 had a fantastic visit to the Tower of London on 13/10/2023. Their behaviour was fantastic and considering they sat in a lot of traffic on the way home, due to the A13 being closed, they arrived back at school with big smiles.
Year 2 Harvest Festival
17th & 18th November
Well done to Eloise and Anais who accompanied Mrs Ferrari and I to the Healthy Schools festival on 19/10/2023 where we were presented with two awards.
We received a certificate of achievement for the successful completion of the health improvement project linked to PSHE- ‘Healthy Schools Expectation’ and also ‘The Best Practice Award’ for our work on becoming a Dementia Friendly Aware School .
Thank you to all of the familes that attended the Foundation Family Read on 19/10/23.
Anti-Bullying week began on Monday 13th November, when children were invited to wear odd socks which added a little colour and pattern around the school. Throughout the week children completed activities including making posters, kindness art and kind hands.
What a great morning we had at St Andrews church on Tuesday morning with 8 artists from across Key Stage 2 viewing the ‘From Hong Kong to Wickford’ exhibition. The children got to view the work of Ho Wai-On and friends around the church before drawing in their own sketchbooks and creating their own portraits. Thank you to Mrs Playle for organising this event.
