Sports Day

 

Towards the end of the week, we had both KS1 and KS2 Sports Day. The weather was great and the children were ready to go! Each child wore either red, yellow, green or blue and represented their colour/house in their races. KS2 Sports Day took place first with a 9:30 start, it saw the children take part in sprints, long jump, long distance, throwing and a relay. 

During lunch time there was a picnic on the field where parents, children and teachers ate lunch and enjoyed a BBQ put on by The Friends of Elm Park Primary. 

The KS1 Sports Day started shortly after lunch. Children took part in 6 events egg and spoon race, sprint, obstacle relay, corridor relay, ball throw and the sack race. 

We would like to thank all parents and careers for attending and The Friends of Elm Park Primary for supporting. A final thank you to Evie Bragger for her fantastic photography.

Junior Music Festival

The KS2 choir did our school proud on Friday at the Junior Music Festival at the Queens theatre. We were the smallest choir there but that did not stop them putting in a show stopping performance of ‘Walking on Sunshine’.

Well done KS2 choir you are all superstars!

Quad Kids

 

 

On 19th June, some children from Year 3 and 4 were lucky enough to represent the school at Quad Kids. During the event, which was held at Hornchurch Stadium, children participated in a long distance run, a sprint race, vortex throw and standing long jump. The children did themselves, their parents and the school proud, well done!

Health and Fitness Week

Health and Fitness Week has been a great success with the children taking part in lots of different activities and being able to enjoy different healthy fruit and veg. On Monday, the children took part in the 5-a-day Pentathlon and will be trying to better their score in September. Throughout the day on Tuesday, children took part in a Clubbercise session in which they danced the day away to some classic songs. The smoothie bike took off on Wednesday, as we saw each class create their winning smoothie. Finally on Thursday the children took to their seats to watch Teachers vs Year 6 rounder, which saw the teacher win.

Number fun

 

This week, the whole school has been on the look out for big red numbers! The numbers are hidden and the children are on a mission to find them and return them to Miss Brown,along with a fact of their choice about that number. The children have enjoyed searching throughout the school and showing off their number skills!

Ancient Egytian Art

Year 4 have been studying Ancient Egypt and have now finished a long Art project, which involved lots of practical making skills. Here is a photo of Year 4’s display, showcasing our 3D death masks and papyrus sketches. Well done Maple and Larch!

Year 4 have finished their Art project which was a study of William Morris and his work. We then made our own print blocks and printed some ‘wallpaper’. Our display is outside Maple class and reflects the wonderful work and effort we have put in! Well done Year 4!
