Here are some of our photos of Year 6 interviewing Councillor Sue Gray and other special guests during last month's dedication of our Royal British Legion school standard.
It was a dazzling sunny afternoon at the Thurrock Nature Reserve on Wednesday 8th June. Six pupils from Year 4 represented the year group at a special prize giving ceremony for the borough-wide Sculpture on a Pallet Project. Children from our school were the youngest in the competition and waited with baited breath as the winners were announced. Our first cheer was when we won a highly commended award for 4BG’s sculpture, though Mr Barry-Gregory preferred that it wasn’t referred to as ‘the one with all the sand and mud on it’! We were so excited to be presented with certificates by the CEO of the Essex Wildlife Trust for all of our sculptures and to hear about his passion to work with animals from a very young age, as this also tied in well with this week’s Aspirations and Enterprise Week. A huge well done to all of Year 4. You will be able to see our pallets on display as part of a summer art trail from 9 July.
Hello everybody! It has been a very busy month! In 1EG we have been very busy creating our Pumpkin Soup balloons! We used a variety of different resources such as paint, glue, tissue paper, paper and markers to make remarkable paper mache sculptures. We will be able to show them to you soon!
In Maths, we have been learning about money. We used British coins to “buy” things and give change. This week we are going to practise multiplication.
Well done to Laila, Kelly, Toby, Freddie, Billy, Krrish, Aimee, Jorja, Shannia and Jacob for doing their homework getting a lot of points in Mathletics! Keep up the good work!
Everyone across the school has been busy in their English lessons. Reception have been creating character descriptions based on animals and applying their new understanding of adjectives. Year 1 have been writing their own version of ‘conflict’ stories, inspired by ‘Panda and the Monkey’ and ‘Pumpkin Soup’. Year 3 are developing their skills in diary writing, pretending to be characters from the retro cartoon,’ The Flintstones’. Year 4 are going green with their persuasive letters based on ‘The Lorax’. Year 5 are spooking everyone by creating atmosphere and building suspense in their haunted stories and Year 6 are turning themselves into film critics with their outstanding reviews. And finally...Year 2. Well done to all of the children for their outstanding efforts during SATs. They were able to use everything they learn in their reading, writing and grammar lessons to complete their tests and should be very proud of themselves.
