Year 6 Romeo and Juliet workshop
The children consolidated their learning around Shakespeare and, specifically, Romeo and Juliet through exploring language choices and themes. They used drama to bring this to life.

Year 6 Map Reading in Hadleigh
This week Year 6 took to the streets of Hadleigh as part of their work on the local Council’s plan for the area. Children used map skills to locate landmarks and plot the scale of the surrounding areas. I was able to join Miss Scott’s class for a short while and it was clear that the children were enjoying this experience and they represented the school superbly. Well done Year 6 and thank you to the team for planning this learning experience.
Year 6 Church Visit
As part of their local art project our Year 6 children visited St James the Less Church to study the stained glass windows and listen to a talk on the history of the church and surrounding areas. Thank you to Mrs Tilbrook and Mrs High for organising this enriching experience for our students.
Children experienced an exciting and challenging first day back at school. 2016-2017
Year 6: Missing chairs
It was great to see all the children have some element of learning outside of their classrooms. The atmosphere around school was one of enthusiasm, fun and exciting challenge.
Year 6 Art Project 2015-2016
This week the year 6 children not attending the Isle of Wight residential have had great fun working on an art project with the school’s very own local artist, Mrs High. The children have been creating a large, 3D picture of the Southend seafront. It will be proudly displayed around the school. Well done year 6 and thank you to Mrs High– it’s very impressive.
On Thursday 19th May a sports journalist from the Evening Echo visited the school to gather predictions for one of the groups at Euro 2016. This is part of a competition against other local schools to see which school can correctly guess the outcomes of games at the tournament. A group from year 6 were selected to make predictions on behalf of the school. An article on this, including a photo, will appear in the Echo just before the Euros start. There will be regular updates in the paper tracking our progress. Following the group stages the Echo will re-visit the school to gather predictions for the knockout stages. There is a mystery prize for the winning school– fingers crossed.
