This week has been such a busy week with lots of exciting events across the school.
We started on Monday with Year 1 and their Circus Day. Children took part in a range of circus activities, showing their school values of resilience and determination whilst learning and improving their balance and co-ordination skills with our circus visitor.
On Tuesday Year 5 went to the Olympic park in Stratford to see Belgium vs Great Britain in a hockey match. The children were enthusiastic on their return but all showed disappointment that the British team lost against Belgium. They also had the opportunity to visit the velodrome whilst they were there which they were eager to talk about.
Finally, on Thursday, Year 3 went to Dagenham library to take part in an author's workshop. They spent time drawing pictures of people that inspired them whilst they were there, and had a book presented to them.
Meanwhile Year 2 held parents' workshops to discuss the end of year assessments in Year 2. Many parents joined their children in classes to see how we taught different topics before having a more formal meeting with Mr Wade, Assistant head for KS1.
As part of their music lesson, children 2W were also the first children in the school to play our new glockenspiels - which they were very excited about.
Meanwhile the Times Tables Rockstars were launched in Year 5, meaning Years 4, 5 and 6 now all have access (watch this space Year 2 and 3). We ran a Battle of the Bands between Years 6 & 4 last week. Our winners were Year 6 with Diana, Chadrac and Migle earning the most points for Year 6 - well done! Next week's battle is between Year 6 and Year 5 (although early indications show that Year 6 may win again). Chadrac is meanwhile in competition to beat Miss Spooner's speed. Keep up the TT Rockstars everyone - we can see how much better you are at recalling your times tables already!
