Wild Science

The school was visited by Wild Science in November. All the children were given the opportunity to learn about, habitats and lifecycles. These photographs show the enjoyment and fascination of the children in Year 6

‘Wild Science gave us the opportunity to see different creatures. We learnt about how they react when humans are present and learnt interesting facts about their habitat.’ Roderica.

Joint Schools Carol Concert at Brentwood Cathedral

Our children took part in a fantastic carol concert at Brentwood Cathedral; the children sang their hearts out and represented the school brilliantly. We were so proud of them.

‘Taking part in the Brentwood Concert gave us the chance to work with other children. I love learning about their schools and finding out about them.’ Lily N

Rocksteady Concert

Louis and Tochi performed in front of the school in a rock group. They take part in Rocksteady sessions every week. They have to work together to create a true group performance.

‘When you play music you can feel it vibrate through you. It is a real pleasure, I also enjoy; singing, the tunes and especially the rhythm.’ Tochi.

Year 6 Class Outing

Year 6 enjoyed a day at Valence House this week, they experienced what life was like in the local area during WWII. We had the opportunity to explore the archives, imagine what it was like to be an evacuee, escape to an Anderson shelter during an air raid and even see the remains of an unexploded bomb.
The children were excellent representatives of our school.





All of the children in Year 6 are given a 'buddy' in Reception class, they help them to settle in. These photos show the children enjoying lunch together.

Valence House Museum

Year 6 enjoyed a day at Valence House Museum learning what Britain was like during WWII. We were evacuees, air raid wardens and spent time in an Anderson Shelter. We had a lovely day and learnt a lot.







This term, Year 6 have been studying Science at All Saints. So far they have learned about safety in the lab and used a Bunsen Burner to test irreversible and reversible changes. They have also started investigating the solubility of solutions.

The Year 6 basketball team comprising of Jaiden, Runo, Domos, Dwayne and Jevonte made St Vincents very proud yesterday. St Vincents narrowly missed out on qualifying for the finals.

We look forward to seeing them play (and no doubt win) in the spring competition next year
