What a busy week! Well done to Year 4 for a fantastic Harvest Assembly on Monday. It was good to see so many parents and grandparents here supporting their children. A special thank you to Mrs Miller, who baked the Harvest bread, which was shared with all the children in the school after the service. The gifts of food have been donated to a local food bank. Our Maths Morning on Wednesday was a huge success too. It was great again to see so many parents coming in to be with the children and participate in their enjoyment of Maths.
Well done Lexi Hoffman (Miss Hubbard’s Class), Erin Taylor, Layla Kaleel, Welaa Lahreche, Bertie Paris, Barney Paris (Miss Day’s Class), Charlie Wood (Mr Davey’s Class), Demi Hoffman, Mimi Fetta (Miss O’Riordan’s class) Samaya Kaleel, Sienna Roseweir-Evans, Kristal Savery (Miss Bektas’s Class) who achieved Green Cards this week,
The girls’ and boys’ football teams competed in a rally last Friday. Despite winning 3, drawing 1 and only losing 1 game in the group stage, the girls didn’t progress to the drop out stages. The boys’ football team came second, losing to 2-1 to Chigwell Primary School in the final. Well done to all who participated.
I hope those parents who attended are enjoying their present. If any parents were unable to come and would like the Maths pack, please compete and return the reply slip overleaf.
Respectful behaviour in the Playground
It has been brought to my attention that whilst waiting for our Junior children to come out of school at the end of the day, younger children have been seen climbing on the back of the football goal nets, standing on top of the table tennis tables and kicking out the spindles of the staging. This behaviour has damaged the equipment, is unsafe and is extremely disrespectful. If you are a parent of a younger child, please supervise your children whilst waiting. Thank you for your support.
Secondary School Applications for September 2016 – Reminder for Year 6 Parents
We have been asked by Essex County Council to remind parents of Year 6 children that the closing date for applications for a secondary school place from September 2016 is 31 October 2015. Applications can be made via the ECC website www.essex.gov.uk/admissions. I would encourage all parents to use all the choices to increase the likelihood of a chosen school being allocated. I am unable to write any letters to support an appeal.
