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!

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.
