Well done to the whole school for coming dressed in bright colours for our Essex Air Ambulance fundraising event. An initial count of the money suggests we raised around £120!

E Safety Week

This week we are learning about e-safety in a special themed week in school. All classes will have lessons on being safe online, the whole school took part in an assembly on Monday and Horse Chestnut & Oak Tree are exploring some videos aimed at teaching them further information about online safety. As parents and carers there is so much you can do to support your child in this area. If you visit the NSPCC website and go to the 'Preventing Abuse' section there is information on their campaign called 'Share Aware as well as information on online safety and cyber bullying. Please take some time to visit the website and find out how best to support your child. Thank you :-) 

Valentines Disco

Don't forget it's the Valentines Disco this Friday. Please get your tickets for £2.00 from the school office!

Young Voices Report by Elodie & Elliott

The trip to the o2…

On the 28th January nineteen children travelled up to London for a Young Voices choir concert at the brilliant o2. Many famous people were there; Lucy Spraggan, a street dance group named Urban Strides and also much more. The host of it was a person called Gigi and the conductor was a man called David. There were 7592 children there. Plus we sat at the front of the top layer and could have fallen down if we jumped too high. The Urban Strides street dance group performed a dance which all 7592 kids had to copy. There were many adults who turned up (it was quite embarrassing when they started dancing as well, and was also embarrassing when they sang the songs they knew because they heard us singing ourselves). Lucy Spraggan sang a song called ‘Unsinkable’. Whilst she was singing we noticed that she had a broken leg and a Beckham boot on it! On our way back we were exhausted and tired because every school had to wait inside. When we eventually arrived on the coach nearly everyone fell asleep. Then we got to school again at 00:01. It was a great experience and we hope to do it again!!!!!!!
