With your support we have raised an incredible £116 for BBC Children In Need. The children were very excited being in school wearing their pyjamas! Robins were first into assembly on Friday and couldn’t hide their excitement and cosiness.

Kingfishers Assembly- 17th Nov

A big well done and thank you to Year 3 and 4 in Kingfisher class who shared their topic of the Romans during their class assembly. In front of the school and parents, the children spoke confidently about all they had learned including cross curricular links with DT, making mosaic tiles and their work on levers to build catapults. We were also treated to a Roman march practised in PE lessons, maths challenges using Roman numerals and diary entries about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii.

Fun Run- 4th Nov

Written by Charlie and Thomas in Kingfishers

On Friday 4th November 2022 some of the children in Kingfisher class went on a mini bus to the Northern Gateway sports Centre in Colchester to take part in the Fun Run. There were other schools too, for example Tiptree Heath. We set ourselves a target and used our growth mindset to beat it. We had a fun afternoon and everybody had a lovely time. It was an extremely big event.

Firework Safety- 20th Oct

On Thursday 20th October we welcomed Bryony, a member of staff from Essex Fire Service who delivered an assembly around keeping safe and being vigilant. Please ask your child about some things they learned during this as we are encouraging them to share advice with their family and friends.

Green Jumper Day- 14th Oct

Green Jumper’s sole aim is to help save our planet. On Friday 14th October 2022 (referred to as Green Jumper Day) schools, businesses, shops, and other organisations will turn down the heating, and keep warm by wearing an extra layer. If that layer is a Green Jumper – fantastic! The money saved (along with any donations) will be used to plant trees and educate the next generation about the importance of mitigating climate change. We ask that you make a small donation for this cause. No green jumper… No problem! Footwear, accessories, hats or any other green item can be worn. If you have nothing green, then a jumper of any kind is welcome.

Macmillan Money raised- 29th Sept

Thank you for all of your support for the coffee afternoon. Year 6 were very proud to host you and I’m sure you’ll agree, there were some budding sales people.
We are happy to share that we raised £190.53!

Harvest Festival

Another big thank you to all those who were able to join us on Thursday 13th October at All Saints Church in the village. It was fantastic to welcome so many of you and an amazing opportunity to gather and give thanks. We are very proud of the children’s singing which they have been working so hard on with Mrs Lewis during singing assembly.

Thank you for your help raising vital supplies for Colchester Community Foodbank

With parent and staff help, we were able to provide an incredible 93KG of food for the Food Bank. The School Council member in Year 6 helped to pack all of the cans, jams, coffee, cereal and toiletries into bags and even offered to load them into Ms Brown’s car ready for their delivery. This will make such a difference to the lives of local residents relying on the service. Remember, if you find yourself struggling, please speak to Ms Brown as there is support available.
