Deanes Athletics


Willow Class had a wonderful time at the Indoor Athletics event at Deanes school on Tuesday. All the children enjoyed taking part in their races. We did extremely well and finished 8th out of 18 schools (many of which are far bigger schools than ours). The children were so proud of themselves. Thank you to all the parents/carers who supported us by making the children look so smart in their matching P.E. kits-we looked like a fantastic team!

We have started our work on Instructions this week, looking at and using imperative verbs. Next week the children will make sandwiches and then write up the instructions. The following week we will start our Design and Technology project and our Big Write will be instructions on how we made our models.


Many thanks and have a great weekend

Autumn Poems and Athletics!


It has already been a busy start to the second half of the Autumn Term! The children have been writing Autumn Poems and reading them out to the class. We also started our new Science topic on Materials.

On Tuesday 12th November we will be competing in the Year 2 Athletics competition at Deanes school. P.E. bags have been sent home in order that the children can come to school wearing smart, full and clean kit on Tuesday morning. They can wear trainers and will stay in their P.E. kits all day. 

Finally, we will shortly be starting our Design and Technology project for this term. Could you please collect any empty 'Pringles' containers or similar cylinders or tall cuboid boxes-usually containing crackers? 

Many thanks in advance for your kind attention to these matters. Have a good week.

October Half Term 2019


It has been a very busy (and a very long 8 weeks!!!) half term. The children have settled really well into Willow Class and have done lots of work on their topics of Houses and Homes and Habitats. We had a wonderful trip to Southchurch Hall and gardens as well. 

Next half term we will continue our Houses and Homes topic and start a new topic on Materials in Science. We will also be going to Deanes School to take part in an Athletics competition that the class have been training for with Southend United coaches. Details to follow.....

Don't forget to help the children with their Buffet Homework which is due in on November 22nd. Please keep reading, practising spellings and times tables rock stars. Thank you.

Have a restful week.

Southchurch Hall and Park Visit


Willow Class had a wonderful time on their school trip this week! We were so lucky with the weather-bright sunny skies-and spent the first part of the day looking at a range of habitats in the beautiful gardens and grounds. We were fortunate enough to meet the Leader of the volunteer group who have spent the last 2 years getting the garden back to its present condition for visitors to enjoy. She was able to give us some very useful information for our studies. We saw ducks, terrapins, carp and a range of insects.

After lunch we were told all about the Tudor House and then explored it for ourselves. The children enjoyed dressing up in Tudor costumes.

The day ended on a very high note when we travelled back to school along Southend seafront on the top deck of a double decker bus!! The children were singing and cheering!

Today the children have all written exciting recounts of their trip for their Big Write.

Have a relaxing weekend!

Houses and Homes


It has been another very busy week in Willow Class! All the children finished retelling the story of The Three Little Wolves and The Big Bad Pig-a very funny updated version of the traditional tale. Please ask the children to tell you all about it!

The children will have some Houses and Homes research to do this weekend, in preparation for our work next week. We would really appreciate your support in order that they can complete it by Tuesday.

Don't forget our trip to Southchurch Hall on Wednesday 9th October. The children will see rooms and objects from different periods in time and explore the wonderful grounds.

Finally, if your child's poem was chosen to be published please send back the permission slip as soon as possible.

Have a good weekend
