IMD Visit WJS
After getting through to the next round of Britain's Got Talent, IMD Legion street dance crew performed at our school today. They were inspirational!
Year 4 visited Chelmsford water treatment plant as part of their science and geography learning.
The theme of this year's Wickford Schools singing festival was weather and our Y5/6 choir performed Desert Rain beautifully.
River Crouch Clean-Up
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.
Red Nose Day
We raised £ for Comic Relief and Cancer Research UK.
Year 6 spent the day completing a variety of fun challenges to make them think about what motivates them and how they can be successful learners.
Y5 Rocket Project
Year 5's topic this term has been Space and they were set a homework project to build their own rocket. They are amazing!
Year 4 Viking Day
As part of year 4's literacy, they spent the day preparing, rehearsing then performing a Viking play.
Baby Robbins made her long-awaited appearance on Friday morning. Congratulations to mum and dad!
Cross Country Finals
Well done to James, Carly & Jess who represented the school at the finals of the Cross Country Championships at William de Ferrers school.
Anglia Ruskin University
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.
Congratulations to the children who represented the school at the first round of the Wickford swimming gala today. Overall, year 3 & 4 came FIRST and year 5 & 6 came FIRST!! So both teams qualify for the finals later in the year.
