MUSICAL SOIREE - MAY 2023


Who knew just how many talented musicians we had at Sunnymede Junior School!

Parents were treated to a wonderful evening watching their children perform, with songs and music linked to the King's Coronation.


Sunnymede children showcased the wonderful opportunities they have had to develop their musical talent. As well as the choir and recorder players, we enjoyed hearing the cellists, flautists, drummers​, pianists, violinists and guitarists. We even had ex pupils Daniel and Jonathan make an appearance with their cellos.


Thank you to the many children who performed, our parents and carers for being a wonderful audience and to our peripetetic ​music teachers for developing such talent across our school. A particular thank you goes to Mrs Pye for organising this wonderful event!

Science Show - November 2022


Abbie Ayre loves going to her Gran’s after school. This is because there’s something very different about Abbie’s Grandma. Abbie’s Grandma is Dr Rosemary Ayre, an incredible scientist with a shed full of experiments and adventures.  Together with her friend Charlie and Gran’s supercomputer “Derek 5000” they investigate the causes of air pollution and what they can do to make their world a safer, cleaner more sustainable place.......

 

Our ear five pupils were very lucky to see the Abbie Ayre and the Shed of Science performance last week.  The show helped is designed to:

o    Raise our awareness of the potential consequences of poor air quality on our  health and well-being

o    Identify the causes of poor air quality

o    Understand ways we can reduce negative impact on air quality

o    Motivate us to improve their air quality by walking, cycling or using public transport, especially for the daily journey to school

o    Investigate the positive benefits of using sustainable travel 

o    Inspire us to motivate others to make a positive change on air quality


                 What part can you play in improving our environment?​

AUTHOR VISIT: CHRISSIE SAINS - MAY 2022



We were so lucky to have Chrisie Sains,a talented author and member of our local community visit us here at Sunnymede Junior School.. Through her lively, interactive assembly and workshops, Chrissie inspired a number of our budding writers to consider a career in writing.  The children asked some really thoughtful questions and enjoyed having the opportunitiy to have a chat with her over coffee, as well as having a copy of her book signed. Take a look at some photos from her visit...


..   


      


       

The children enjoyed taking an object from the 'What if?' box and thinking of a question to kick-start a creative idea

 for a story.  What a brilliant way to get inspiration!

POLICE FOORTBALL AND NETBALL RALLY - MAY 2022



A sunny Saturday in May...

  



Our Year 6 netball team blew us away with their determination at teamwork at their first full netball tournament. Pitted againt

 some really strong teams from the wider Basildon area, our amazing netball team persevered and secured third place out of 

twelve schools. Congratulations!


  


                                                     Our Year 5 Football Team                                                                     Our Year 6 Football Team

   

 Our football teams played tirelessly throughout the searing heat. Despite getting off to a great start and winning a number of their individual matches, none of our teams quite made it to the finals this year. However, they  did us proud,played fairly, with determination and as a team. Well down to all our football teams.
