Bravo for Belchamps!
The final week of the academic year started with a bang today as the children from Year Three ventured out of school on a fantastic trip to Belchamps. Throughout the day the children had to face a number of challenges and teamwork really was the word of the day. The children wore harnesses and climbed a series of towers, poles and crates, encouraging each other to keep on trying their best. At the end of the afternoon there was the chance to gather around the fire and sing a range of camping songs. It was a great day which all of the children enjoyed.Meanwhile, back in school, Year One spent the morning in their new Year Two class. The whole morning was about team building and developing perseverance skills. All the children created a book mark using a running stitch and it was great to hear them encourage each other when they got stuck. Children also worked with their new friends to build newspaper towers and create their own islands whilst working in a team. Everyone had a lovely morning and they were very excited about their new classes.In the afternoon a group of children from Sycamore took part in our latest 'AOK Club' mission where they were challenged to wash the school minibus as a surprise for Mr Smith. They worked as a team to make sure tat the bus was sparkling clean and Mr B was delighted to present them with their special badges in recognition of their kindness.Meanwhile, the downstairs hall played host to two transition meetings for the parents of children moving into Year Five and Six next year. Mrs Creak and Miss Brooker talked through the curriculum for the year before the parents chatted to the teachers over a cup of tea.Later in the hall the children from the KS1 Steps Ahead performing arts group performed their end of year showcase. The children performed a series of songs which told the story of Oliver and dazzled the audience with their confidence. Well done children, we are proud of you!In the evening a large group of our Year Six pupils and their parents enjoyed a leavers meal at Zen City. The children were joined by Mr B and the Year Six team where they all enjoyed a Chinese meal before partying the night away! 
Sports Day 2018!
It was one of the most exciting days of the school calendar today as all of the children from across all year groups took part in our annual 'Sports Day'.

The wall of plaques gets added to every year and will be able to act as a reminder of the children's time at school for years to come.In the afternoon the upstairs hall was full of crazy dance moves and games as the children in KS2 enjoyed their end of term discos. The children were all wearing their best party clothes and, as usual, were put through their paces by the wonderful Micky B!After school the children from Year Six enjoyed their special leaving party.

Six bands entertained the audience playing the drums, keyboards, electric guitar, bass or singing and the sounds played were awesome! Thanks to Phil for his hard work over the course of the year and to all the adults who came along. Well done to all of the performers, we are proud of you.After school the teachers used their staff meeting time in order to pass on information about the children to their next teachers. The teachers discussed academic achievement, the things which interest the children and what makes them unique.
Brilliant Bouncers!
It was an exciting start to the week in school as the children from our Foundation Stage and KS1 classes took part in a 'Sponsored Bounce' out on the field. Each class in turn popped groups of children onto the castle where the children had one minute each to see how many times they could bounce. A group of parent volunteers counted a child each in order to ensure everyone was treated fairly and there was a tremendous amount of bounces completed. Well done to all of the children, we are proud of you, and thank you to everyone who donated sponsorship. Some of the teachers showed their competitive streaks by taking part and the competition was fierce! Mr B scored a rather disappointing, but exhausting, 86 bounces whilst last years champion, Mr Geach, scored an impressive 109 but was pipped to the post as this years staff champion by the ever bouncy Mrs Stokes with an amazing 111! Well done Mrs Stokes!Thank you to all of our parent volunteers for their time counting and to the wonderful Mr Scroxten who once again gave us the use of the bouncy castle.Throughout the day there was a theme of transition in school. In the morning the children in the KS1 assembly spent time thinking about how to go about making new friends. Mr B set up scenarios where the children were taught how to approach children they wanted to make friends with and how they could use their body language and facial expressions to show that they were friendly. Later, in the afternoon, the children in next years Badgers had a special extra playtime on the playground where they had the opportunity to put the assemblies theme into practice. They spent time getting to know their new classmates, playing games and having fun. Next years Foxes and Owls will also get the opportunity to play exclusively with each other later in the week.At the end of the afternoon the downstairs hall was used for a transition meeting for the parents of children moving from Year Two to Three in September. Mrs Howard, the year group leader, spoke through some of the routines the children follow in Year Three as well as some of the aspects of school life which will remain the same in the new term. A group of children from our current Year Three also joined the meeting to tell them all about their experiences in the year group since September. At the end of the meeting Mrs Howard was joined by Mr Martin and Mr Cann so that the parents could take the opportunity to introduce themselves to their new teachers over a cup of tea. Thanks to everyone who made it along, especially on such a hot day, it was smashing to see you.

There were skipping races, sprints, space hopper races, egg and spoon races and relays and the children tried their very best throughout.Our boys came first in the sprint, our girls came second in the bouncy hoppers and the realy and the wonderful team spirit enabled the children to achieve a wonderful fourth place in the whole of Southend; our best result in the competition to date! Well done to all of the children who took part, we are proud of you.Meanwhile, back in school, our new chickens continued to settle in to their surroundings and are becoming tamer by the day. Today another group of children visited the hen house in order to get the chickens used to being around humans and collected more eggs.Also today, Mrs Nicklin came and worked with groups of children, setting maths challenges to extend their understanding of calculations, and playing a series of quick thinking maths games. The children also gathered together to reward individuals achievements in our two simultaneous 'Celebration Assemblies'.Today the school council started working on posters to remind the children to look after their belongings and keep the cloakrooms tidy. This was an issued raised a few weeks ago. Children chose to either make their posters on the computer or by hand. These will be ready to display in September. It was wonderful to see children help each other on the computer to copy and paste pictures and change the font and colour. Great teamwork School Council!Meanwhile, throughout the morning and into the afternoon, the children from Willow and Sycamore ventured out of school to take part in a trip to the Priory where they listened to a talk about the monks and how they lived.
