The school year ended today with a talent show and farewell to three members of staff. Mrs Arbabzadah and Mrs Hume are retiring and Miss Davies is off to pastures new. Good luck to all of them.
The talent show winners were Eve and Leila with their magic show. Well done to all the contestants.
Staff would like to extend a special thank you for all the thoughtful presents they received this week.
As part of a National Gallery project, we spent the week studying the painting Penelope with the Suitors and completed a range of work inspired by it.
Then, this afternoon, we held an exhibition of all our hard work. What an amazing range of art was produced across the school from just one picture! It was fantastic to see the children impressed and excited by each other’s work with one child saying, “I might cry….. seeing such amazing things always makes me want to cry!”
After school, the parents seemed equally captivated, writing very encouraging comments in the visitors books. Thank you to all the teachers for their hard work end enthusiasm.
Congratulations to our Athletics Squad who narrowly missed winning the District Athletics Championship yesterday. There was just ONE point between first place Oakfield and ourselves. Every member of the team showed true sportsmanship and were again a credit to our school and our motto ‘Working For Everyone’. Joshua Stanford was particularly highlighted for his sportsmanship and was awarded Boy Athlete of the day – we are so proud of him!

Two days of sporting competiton took place at William de Ferrers school this week.
Yesterday, our rounders team competed in the second round tournament after winning the Wickford heat. Despite hideous traffic problems and a very late start, they also won this round so now qualify for the county tournament on 23rd June in Gosfield.
Tonight our swimmers competed in the Billericay, Wickford & Woodham finals after qualifying in every year group from the Wickford heat in January. We finished in 3rd place overall. Well done!
