Christmas sing along

We finished our term with the annual Christmas sing-a-long. Year groups learnt different songs to sing and we were treated to performances by both the choir and the orchestra. It was a great way to finish the term and left us feeling ready for Christmas.

Narnia

A poem written by Leah and Jamie in Year 4, working hard up to the last day and very proud of their work!

Santa Netball

The Girls Netball Team were at Alleyn Court to play in the annual Santa Competition. A cold wet day but the hot chocolate, cookies and Santa hats were enough to get them through. The girls played excellent again against schools from Southend and Castle point. A great event and a big thank you to Mr Smith and the staff at Alleyn Court for putting on this event.

French themed lunch

On Monday 3rd December, French club joined Miss Barrick for a French themed lunch. The children either enjoyed a traditional beef bourguignon or a selection of cheeses and cold meats, followed by a delicious pain au chocolat. Together they learnt some useful French phrases for when dining out at a French restaurant. Thank you to Mrs Stephens and the kitchen staff for making this wonderful experience possible.

PA Christmas Fair

Our fantastic PA organised a wonderful Christmas Fair, with numerous games (Mr Reeve looked very fetching in his Rudolph jumper), face-painting, foody goodies and a super Santa Grotto! Thank you to all the outside stall-holders who brought in their lovely Christmas treats. The Book Fair was a great success with its half price books and merchandise. We are really in the holiday mood now!
