These pages will keep you up to date with what's happening in each class and the School Council.  You can also see the recent winners of our house trophies.

Travel Survey

Have a chance of winning a bike and accessories (£400 in total) by filing in the travel survey that was mentioned on our last newsletter.  The survey closes this Sunday so if you could complete we would be very thankful, there are quite a few schools which could join the 100 responses club - let one be us!

Your responses will give us data on how children travel to our school, how parents would like them to travel, motivations for these decisions, and how to encourage active travel. It will be a useful tool when looking at social distancing measures at drop off and pick up times too. Parents have also left a number of comments which are useful and interesting.

The link above directs you and your child to a week of fun resources and challenges which you are able to complete at home – no specialised equipment will be required and videos will explain each challenge. Active Essex will release each challenge on a daily basis throughout this week.

Guinness World Record
You are invited to attempt a Guinness World Records title by answering as many times tables questions correctly as you can in one minute. Guinness World Records has created a new title - Highest score achieved on ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’ in one minute - and we are looking for players to aim for this special accolade.  For more details click here.

Each week we will be updating this page with our TT Rockstars and Numbots winners.
