There was a theme of safety in the Year Three classes today as Stuart from the Essex Fire Service visited the children in order to talk about fire safety in the home. He talked to them about possible hazards, how to keep themselves safe and the importance of having a working smoke alarm in the house. Stuart also left details, which have been published on the school Facebook page, of how to take advantage of a free home check. Thank you Stuart, once again, for your time.
Meanwhile the children in the Foundation Stage investigated the rainy weather as some of them sprayed different colour paints in puddles in order to see how the colours dispersed and mixed in the water. Inside the children played in the role play areas, builders trays and with Duplo and Lego.
In Year Six the children sang along to Charanga tunes with expression whilst the children in Woodpeckers created underwater pictures using the laptops.
At the end of the afternoon the upstairs hall was full of proud parents as the children from Year Four presented a special assembly about their recent residential trip to Wat Tyler Country Park. The children explained to the parents all about the challenges they faced when undertaking the activities on the trip before Miss Ellacott and Miss Brooker talked to the parents all about the PGL trip in Year Five.
After school Miss Toms hosted another KS1 Drama Club which saw the children play mirror games where they copied each others movements and created tablos before finding ways to find their voice in the group and speaking with expression out loud.
