Ellie 4B highlights of the year!!

This year I have really enjoyed going to Mountfichet castle that was really fun I also enjoyed it when Luke Carson the champion gymnast came in I loved that.   I really enjoyed cheerleading and sports day because red team won and i'm in red.  I also enloyed inter-house games. Mrs Best and Mrs Sleigh have been really good teachers and I am really sad that Miss Smith is leaving and I wish her all the best in her new school and I will miss Mrs Best and Mrs Sleigh too.

The Tempest - Yr 6 Performance

This year our Year 6 children braved the elements by holding their incredible performace of The Tempest outside in the playground.  A wonderful stage set was built and great use was made of the outside play equipment.  The performance was a huge success and all credit goes to the Year 6 performers and  the Year 5 supporting choir.  Special thanks go to Mr Bernstein, Mrs White, Mrs Copping, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Gallagher and not forgetting our in-house sound man Josh Bobby.

The Olympic Torch comes to Colchester

Wow! What excitement.  Heathlands opened it's doors at 7.30 this morning for a special Olympic breakfast celebration.  80 children turned up bright and early to watch the Torch Relay on the big screen in the hall followed by a scrummy breakfast of croisants, fruit and fruit juice.  Lots of children from the School also lined the streets to join in the celebrations.

Golf - By Catherine 6B

During the 2 weeks of Consortium Olympics, Jake and Catherine went to St Johns Green to play crazy golf.  There were 8 holes and they were certainly crazy.  I got two "holes in one" so did Jake.
Mr Matthews took us with two Olympic Reporters Lola and Megan.

Even though I have played golf before, this certainly was craaaazy golf!!! I loved it!!

Transfer Day - By William 4S

On the 5th of July 2012 was transfer day for the school. We started off as normal and did the register in our usual classes and we were told our new classes for September. We went to our new classes which was extremely exciting. Ellie (4B) said "It was very exciting." Freddie (3M) "it was cool because I am with my best friend".  4 new teachers came to join us to train to be a real teachers in the future.

My trip to Plopsaland - By Zac 5C

The year 5 classes have been on a journey to Belgium.  Firstly, we got to school  at 5.30 in the morning I was soo tired.  Then we were told which group we were in.  I was with Mr Matthew's group with Timmy, Louis, Hannah, Brandon, Millie and Ben.  We went on a long coach ride to Dover and took the ferry accross to Calais.  Then we got back on the coach and drove to Plopsaland.  When we got there we came accross a huge door which was a bit odd because it didn't lead anywhere.  We saw loads of statues and signs.  Then we saw the waterpark and we got soaked.  This was brill!!There were many rides including the Bat Ride, Anubis, Pirate Ship and the Washing Machine.  I tried all the rides and even faced my fears and went on the rollercoasters, yehey!  I had a great day and so much fun.
