Our Visit to the Royal Gunpowder Mills
The children and staff in Year 4 had a lovely day learning about life during World War II. Thankfully, the children were saved from having to walk home once the spy was captured!
Our DT project
Auditions for our Year 3/4 Production will take place on Wednesday 31st January. For a speaking role, please prepare something to perform/read to us on that day. If you are interested in a singing role, also come prepared to sing a little bit of a song (you can bring a CD if you want). We look forward to finding new talents!
Visit to Maldon Prom Park and Northey Island
Last week, we had an incredible day at Maldon, learning more about our local history. After a bit of a trek along the sea wall, we arrived at the causeway to Northey Island where we met a ferocious Viking (Mr Robinson) who told us lots of information about the Vikings, their clothes, their weapons and about the Battle of Maldon. Whilst we were there, we noticed that the tide was rising rapidly and within twenty minutes the causeway had been completed covered. Thank goodness the teachers didn't walk us across. It help us to understand the importance of keeping ourselves safe near rivers.
In the afternoon, we explored the park, identifying different trees and having time to sketch our surroundings.
Thank you to Mr Robinson (https://repeating-history.com) who kindly gave up his time to teach us more about the Vikings and to the parent helpers who accompanied us. Sorry we couldn't take more of you along!
On the 19th October, we have our outdoor learning session, which will link well with our Science work this term. The more volunteers, the merrier! Please let us know if you are able to help out.
What a busy start to the term it has been! The children and staff in Year 4 have settled in well, learning new routines and working well together.
Abbeygate Concert Band
On Wednesday, we had the pleasure of attending a concert in Great Totham Village Hall, where we were able to watch and listen to the Abbeygate Concert Band. The children's faces were delightful as they recognised many of the songs played, although 'Starwars' was definitely a favourite! Thank you to all of the parents who were able to support, either in escorting the children to the venue or who joined us at the village hall.
On Thursday afternoon, we are holding a meeting (in class 4C at 3:30 p.m.) to discuss how we can work together to support your child's learning. We look forward to seeing you there.
