  • HB15's Evacuee Play

    Published 07/01/19, by Zoe Duggan - Webmaster

    In the Autumn Term, HB15 had been practising for an evacuee play.  I was chosen for the main role as the teacher - Miss Garside.  I was super excited, but very nervous and I couldn’t wait to start rehearsing.  Every week, we practised all the scenes - I was in every scene. People who were afraid of speaking were VCPs (villagers, children, parents).  They said about one line each. On the 19 December, we videoed it and we successfully completed all three scenes. We watched the first two scenes, but we didn’t finish watching the third scene as we needed to go to our next lesson.  In the play, Mr Symes, the governor, evacuated me and my class and then left to inform others.  I would do it all over again if I could. The billeting officer, Betty Borret (Emily) was very bossy.  I love music and drama.

  • Christmas Cracked

    Published 07/01/19, by Zoe Duggan - Webmaster

    On the 18 December at 1.15pm, HB15 – my class- and HB16 left Loughton School and walked to the local Baptist Church to learn about the Christmas Story.  When we sat down in the church, we first played a game where it was boys vs girls.  Someone asked a question and the first team to bring the picture answer earned a point.  The girls won.  After that, we had some information given by the Nutty Professor about the true meaning of Christmas.  Then, we made some mince pies and left them to cook while we played Christmas songs charades.  It was funny when Mrs Ruggles had to try and do a charade for ‘Little Donkey’ and we were all primed to shout out all the wrong answers!!Later that afternoon, we completed quizzes and listened to a story about geese that explained God’s reason for coming to Earth as Jesus.  It made the meaning very clear.  Finally we left for school and went home with a leaflet and our mince pie.  A great afternoon was had by all.

  • Year 6 Spelling Bee Competition

    Published 07/01/19, by Zoe Duggan - Webmaster

    A Spelling Bee Competition is where you practise all your spellings throughout the whole term (240 of them!) and, at the end of the term, we have a test of 20 of the spellings.  It is a competition between the classes in year 6.  Here are some of the spellings: advise, knowledgeable, believably, twilight and re-energise.  (Hopefully they’re spelt right).  I was very proud of myself when I saw my score of 19 out of 20!!  I was so happy. I actually couldn’t believe my eyes!  Was I really seeing this?  Plus, to add to it all, overall there is a Spelling Bee trophy for the class to get the highest average score – it was us – HB15!!  I loved and really enjoyed the Spelling Bee.  It was my most favourite Spelling Bee so far!  I would do it again.  Hopefully, I get a good score next time.  I hope you enjoyed reading this.

  • Giving is better than receiving ...

    Published 07/01/19, by Zoe Duggan - Webmaster

    Giving is better than receiving. This is the saying which the year 6 children decided to follow for Christmas. Rather than receiving individual gifts from their teachers for Christmas, the year 6 children agreed that the money normally spent on these gifts, should be used to give joy and hope to others less fortunate.  As such each year 6 class chose gifts, from Oxfam, to help others more in need than themselves. HB13 chose to buy ‘Super Girl’ – help to empower girls, HB14 chose to buy honey bees, HB15 chose to help with supplying clean water and HB16 chose to contribute to education.  It was a very generous gesture from the year 6 children and one that they fully supported.

    Last half term, we asked our year six pupils to inspire us with their reading choices.  They rose to the challenge and we were amazed by their enthusiasm for the books they had read and also their inspiration and creativity – you can see some of the results in the photos (click here to view them).
