River Crouch Clean-Up

12th Apr

 


 

Well done to Hannah and Megan who spent the morning cleaning up the River Crouch with the River Crouch Conservation Trust. They were the only children there but put in a really good shift collecting all the rubbish the adults got out of the river, bagging it up or moving it to collection points for the truck to pick up and also loading and unloading the rubbish from the truck. They found lots of car tyres, car parts, clothing, plastic bags, general rubbish, a road sign, traffic cones, trollies and even a zimmer frame!

 

The trust do this clean up twice a year and it's only for a morning of people's time. It would be fantastic if more children and their parents could join in next time -  look out for information about it around October.

Anglia Ruskin University

14th Jan

 

Year 6 visited the Chelmsford campus of Anglia Ruskin university today to find out first hand what university life is like. It was a terrific day .........

   

After chatting to student ambassadors and a tour of the campus, children completed their own university-based activities then had the opportunity to present their work in the lecture theatre. They will also have the opportunity to show their work to their parents at the university family day in March.

 

Hopefully some of our pupils are now inspired to aim for university when they are older.
