Science Fayre

British Science Week is the 9th to 18th March. To celebrate this, Friars Primary School & Nursery in Shoeburyness, began the week with an assembly, talking about the purpose of science, and how it is split into the three subjects of biology, physics and chemistry. The children learnt about a variety of scientists that had challenged the way people think in the past and showing the way ahead in the future – scientists such as Isaac Newton and Stephen Hawking. The children were also treated to some investigations that looked slightly like magic tricks! On the Thursday, Friars opened its first Science Fayre! Each year group, from Nursery to Year 6 chose a different aspect of science to share w

French Quiz

In assembly this week, Miss Barrick ran a French quiz with members of each house competing to show their knowledge of the subject. The quiz was carried out with ipads and displayed on the projector for the whole school to see. Our contestants were very brave! Congratulations to Sterling for winning the competition and to all the children for taking part.

Science Week

What a brilliant start to our Science Week! Mrs Dyer led our assembly where she told us all about the different forms of science (biology, chemistry, physics etc). Mrs Dyer also showed us lots of famous scientists and told us what they were famous for, which was extremely informative. These scientists included Einstein, Newton, Curie and Attenborough and it was brilliant to hear about their discoveries and the impact they have had on society (most recently the new awareness we have about how plastic is ruining the ocean). Mrs Dyer went on to demonstrate three excellent experiments and asked the children to see if they can find out how they worked. The first was a £5.00 note put in the bottom

Netball tournament

KS1 Cross country

Team Friars KS1 cross country team performed at the Southend schools competition on Wednesday 7th March 2018 at Garons Park. There were 4 races across a 1000 metre course in thick mud with over 100 children from Southend schools competing in the Year 1 and 2 events for both boys and girls. All our athletes ran extremely well and enjoyed the competition, even if they were a little nervous before they ran. Well done to our young athletes.

Dance Festival

On the 24th February, students from year 6 attended a dance festival at Garon Park. The children had been rehearsing a routine for several weeks and were excited to show off their talent to the spectators. They took part in a fun warm up before watching other schools and then they expertly performed their dance routine to the song Hold My Hand. It was a great experience and we are very proud of their efforts. Thank you to the parents/carers who came to watch.
