Year 5 Ancient Greeks Day

Year 5 were very lucky to experience an Ancient Greek day full of exciting activities. 

Before lunch we were able to make oil lamps, create medicines, write our names on beeswax tablets which we made ourselves and carve soap.

After lunch we provided our own entertainment through plays, dances, poetry and soldier training and had a great feast of Greek food.  We had a fantastic day and enjoyed taking all our creativity home.

Mega Man Day

At the beginning of June we held Mega Man Day where the men of our childrens’ families could come into school to see what we get up to!  They helped us with lots of different activities in the classroom and outside on the field.

Children’s University Graduation 2016

On Thursday 30th June 30 children from Thorpedene attended the Children’s University graduation ceremony at South Essex College in Southend. They received their awards from the Deputy Principal  of the college, Anthony McGarel. There were some very happy and proud faces at the ceremony and that was just the parents! We would like to congratulate the children on their achievements and hope to see them back again next year for a higher award. The Children’s University Summer programme of activities will be published soon with lots of free activity suggestions for the  children to earn credits. Don’t forget the Summer reading challenge at all Southend libraries where the children can earn up to 10 hours of credit for their passport.

If you need any more information check out the Children’s University page on our website.

Have a happy and safe Summer earning credits.

Children’s University Co-ordinator

Infant Music Festival 2016

On Tuesday 15th March, 27 excited children from Year 2 travelled to The Freight House, Rochford, to sing at this year’s Infant Music Festival.

Following 3 weeks of giving up some lunchtimes in order to rehearse, the children’s hard work and commitment resulted in an enthusiastic and musical performance of ‘Weather-boy, Weather-girl’ and ‘Extreme Weather’, accompanied by Mrs Dunlop at the piano. The choir performed with confidence to an audience comprising three other school choirs, parents and carers. They also accompanied one of the massed songs, showing their competence in using percussion instruments.

All of the children, looking smart in Thorpedene jumpers and ties, were impeccably behaved and were good ambassadors for our school. (They even remembered to thank the coach driver!)

Mrs Dunlop would like to thank Mrs Rowe for helping to rehearse the choir and Mrs Bassett and Mrs Cook for their invaluable help on the day. Our year 2 choir were wonderful and made us very proud!

Link Building Opening

Our new building, named ‘The Bridge’ was officially opened on Friday 27th November.

As you can see, we made the afternoon even more special for our children by inviting along some friends from Adventure Island, Great Wakering Rovers and Southend United. 

All of the children’s names were entered into a prize draw, where they had the chance to win free tickets and wristbands.

Our community were then invited to enjoy drinks and biscuits whilst looking around after school.

 A great way to end the week! 

 Just keep your eyes peeled for that cheeky Croc!
