13.4.16 Stomp Dance Day

Wyburns had an absolutely fantastic day today with Pete from Nebula Artistic (www.nebulaartistic.com).  We stomped, clapped, body-popped and finger-clicked our way into a frenzy!  Even some of our governors joined in!

 

Every class participated in a Stomp-style, dance workshop, and the day culminated with KS2 performing to the rest of the school in the lovely sunshine.

10.3.16 Infant Music Festival - Freight House, Rochford

Year 2 had a fabulous morning at the Infant Music Festival today.  They joined pupils from Barling Magna, Ashingdon and Richmond Avenue to sing and play music and celebrate all things 'weather'!

 

The children sang out with great relish and particularly enjoyed the demonstration of the conductor's collection of brass instruments.  PL was amazing and actually played the tuba - even though it was bigger than her!!

 

Well done to all the pupils and teachers of Year 2 who worked really hard preparing for this spectacle. laugh

8.3.16 Stunning 2nd at KS2 Maths Quiz Heat!

The brilliance was shining out across the hall.  Our maths quiz team were on fire!!

 

Four pupils from Year 6 competed today in the Essex Schools KS2 Maths Competition and secured a phenomenal second place - our highest ever finish!  They managed to rack-up a terrific score that on another day could have been a winning one - but we were pipped to the post at the last minute.

 

We were so proud of your performance.  The teacher from another school who worked with you sought me out to tell me how brilliant your teamwork, enthusiasm and perseverance were.  Congratulations and Go Team Wyburns!!laugh

1.2.16 Wyburns Choir at the Ladies' Fellowship, Rayleigh Methodist Church

1.2.16 Wyburns Choir at the Ladies' Fellowship, Rayleigh Methodist Church 1

Today we went to for afternoon tea with the Ladies' Fellowship at Rayleigh Methodist Church.  The children performed a selection of songs that they will be singing at the Young Voices, O2 Arena concert next week.  The ladies seemed to really enjoy the show; joining in with some of the more familiar ditties!

 

After the sing-song, the children enjoyed refreshments kindly provided by the ladies and sat and chatted with the members about how times had changed since they were at school.  We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and only wish we could have stayed a little longer to hear some more stories.

 

Many thanks to Rv Phil Warrey and the ladies for enabling this visit to take place and particular thanks to the Fellowship for their generous donation to our school fund.

16.12.15 KS2 Carol Service...Wow!

Well goodness me - what wonderful singing!!  Once again, the children pulled out all the stops and put on a truly magnificent, sometimes moving, and certainly memorable performance.  We raised the roof and kick-started Christmas with a bang!frown

 

Thank you to all of those who so generously contributed to our collection for Little Haven's Children's Hospice, across all of our Christmas performances.  In total, you raised a staggering £343.39 - I think this might be a school record!

 

Many thanks also to Rev. Phil Warrey and all of the volunteers from Rayleigh Methodist Church for hosting us.  A particular thanks to Keith with his wonderful organ - this really adds to the occasion.  Finally, thank you to Heather Glynn, Chair of Rochford District Council, for attending as guest of honour.  She was very complimentary and thoroughly enjoyed herself - presenting the school with a wonderful book on trains!no

 

Rayleigh Methodist Church were very pleased to host Wyburns Christmas Carol service on Wednesday 16th December.

 

The standard of the singing from the children this year was even better than last year. They obviously are enjoying their singing, and get a lot of value out of it. Singing is good for body and soul! The children that read the Christmas story and prose were word perfect, and were great little performers putting a great deal of effort in. The practicing that they had done paid off handsomely. I was particularly impressed by the prayers that the children had written themselves, and they were prayed with great feeling and faith.

 

Again one of my new favourite carols Wise Men (from Out of the Ark) was performed, and the children have promised to teach me this when I go in for assembly on Friday. The church was packed with all 230 seats filled, and the parents, grandparents and friends were most appreciative of all that the children did. The congregational singing was also much better this year – thank you parents, grandparents and friends for singing out well.

 

At the end of the service we took an opportunity to say thank you to all the teachers from the school for all the hard work they have done. Parents, be rightly proud of your young people, and of the school that they attend. It is always a pleasure to go into the school for assembly, the atmosphere in the school is just right, the right amount of respect, the right amount of joy and right amount of positive learning.

 

We look forward to opportunities for future events and working together. We wish everyone a blessed Christmas and a happy and healthy new year. Rayleigh Methodist Church has it’s Carol service on Sunday 20th at 4pm, followed by mince pies. If anyone would like to come along and teach our congregation Wise Men, we would love to see you. www.rayleighmethodistchurch.org.uk

Thank you to all of the kitchen staff, MDAs, teachers and LSAs who helped to make our Christmas lunch so wonderful this year.  I had the 'pleasure' of sitting down to dine with Class 6, whose rendition of Last Christmas was a spectacle to behold!  The children thought about the fact that not all children around the world enjoy the same rights to food and shelter as we do and were particularly grateful for their delicious dinner.  Thanks also to the Friends of Wyburns who, once again, provided crackers to help the occasion go off with a bang! frown

9.12.15 Wyburns and the Beanstalk!

9.12.15 Wyburns and the Beanstalk! 1
We had a fabulous time at the pantomime today in Basildon - oh yes we did!  The whole school went to see Jack and the Beanstalk at the Towngate theatre and it was ace!  The children behaved brilliantly - adults and children alike had great fun.  Thank you to all of the adults who helped to make this trip possible - it is quite an undertaking!  Thank you to all of the children for making it such as pleasurable afternoon out.  We're already looking forward to Sleeping Beauty next year!

14.12.15 Wyburns Winners - Netball!

 

Congratulations to the netball team who won 13 - 0  this afternoon!  We are all so proud of them because it was only their second match of the season.  We were not only impressed with their netball skills, but also their enthusiasm and team spirit. Here's to the next match in 2016.

 

Well done everyone! GO TEAM WYBURNS!  no

1.12.15 Year 1 at the Winter Games

Well done Year 1 for a brilliant job at the KS1 Winter Games today.  You bounced, weaved, dribbled and jumped fantastically!  We were very proud of your teamwork and tenacity - you tried your hardest all of the way through.  It was a pleasure to watch you go!

14.10.15 Girls Football Tournament

14.10.15 Girls  Football Tournament 1

On Wednesday 14th October Wyburns' girls football team went to The Deanes School to play in a tournament.

 

The first match was enjoyable - mainly because we won!  The score was 1 - 0 to us, thanks to TD; in fact all of the goals were thanks to TD!  The next match could have gone either way - the opposing team was evenly matched with us, therefore we drew 0 - o.  Although there were no goals, it was extremely enjoyable.  The next match we won 2 - 0, again thanks to our top scorer, TD.  The final match did not go as we would have liked it to, but it was an incredible game and everyone played very well.  Out of all four matches, our amazing goal keeper, KD, only let in one goal; keeping an almost clean sheet!

 

After all of the games were done, we sat by pitch one and spectated over Groewood's match - for our progress to the semis rested on the outcome.  Unfortunately, Grove did win and we were knocked out.

 

Match report by SM and LB

 

Well played all of the girls - you gave a fantastic team performance and only narrowly missed out on progressing to the semi-finals!  Your brilliance shone out!

14.10.15 A Makeover for the Smallest Room!

14.10.15 A Makeover for the Smallest Room! 1

Miss Burns and a team of budding (female) artists have been decorating the KS1 girls toilets with an amazing mural.  The team worked together to first develop their design in chalks and, once they were happy with the final design, worked through their own break and lunchtimes to create the final look in paint.

 

The toilets now have a vibrant and fun feel, making them a more pleasant place to visit - even educational!  Thank you to everyone who contributed to this brilliance!

7.10.15 Official Opening of Wyburns After School Provision (WASP) Club

Today we were honoured to be joined by the Chair of Rochford District Council for the grand opening ceremony of our new after school provision - the WASP Club!

 

The Chair, Heather Glynn, officially opened our vibrant new extension and spent time with the staff of the new club, as well as some Wyburns pupils.  She enjoyed a tour of the school and was very complementary about all of the colourful walls and classroom displays that add to the happy ethos of our school.  The Chair commented on how polite and well-behaved the children were, and she particularly enjoyed listening to the amazing singing of Classes 3 and 4 during their production rehearsals!  She had such a wonderful time at Wyburns that she hopes to come back and visit us again in the near future.

 

There are still places available for WASP Club, please speak to the office for further details including times and costs.

 

 

25.9.15 Macmillan Coffee Morning

Our annual Macmillan Coffee Morning was another roaring success - thanks to all of those who joined us for the fun!

 

Toad Hall Nursery very kindly made some amazingly-decorated crispy-cakes and two representatives came along to donate them.  Thank you very much - they were especially delicious!! frown 

 

Thanks too to Sainsbury's Local who, once again, donated cakes for our pupils to enjoy.

 

When Mrs T has finished counting her ill-gotten gains, we'll let you know how much was raised.

 

Thank you everybody!heart

18.9.15 Jeans for Genes

Well done to all of you who donned denim and brought some money to support this wonderful charity.

 

You managed to raise a total of £231.88!

 

This smashes last year's total of £190 out of the park - what brilliance!

21.7.15 Goodbye and Good Luck Class of 2015

19.6.15 District Sports

19.6.15 District Sports 1
Wyburns Wonders were at it again!  The children who represented our school at the District Sports event at Garon Park, Southend, were absolutely fantastic!  Their enthusiasm and good behaviour did not waiver for one second throughout the morning.  We enjoyed several individual successes as well as doing particularly well in some of the relay events.  Overall the Wyburns team finished 3rd!  Many congratulations to St Theresa's school who won the competition overall - a rather emotional sports teacher confessed that it was their first time winning at any event.  Hopefully next year will be our go!  Thank you very much to all of the parents who came and cheered us on.  Finally, congratulations to the Wyburns team who organised the event for all the schools participating.

11.6.15 Open the Book Assembly

11.6.15 Open the Book Assembly 1
Today we were visited by volunteers from Open the Book - an organisation that aims to share well-known Bible stories with children.  Today they told us the story of 'The Widow's Coins' and we sang a song for them.  Our visitors were very impressed with the children's singing, as well as their behaviour, and commented that it had been one of the best assemblies that they'd ever been too!  Well done Wyburns - bursting with brilliance as ever!

10.6.15 Wyburns Choir at the Cliffs Pavillion

10.6.15 Wyburns Choir at the Cliffs Pavillion 1
Wowee!  What a fabulous concert!  The choir took part in the SEESMA Junior Music Festival today and were amazing.  They sang their hearts out, looked very smart and behaved impeccably.  My particular favourite numbers were Naughty and Mr Mistofelees.  The choir will be making their last appearance of the year at the Inflatable Fun Day - be sure to catch them!

10.6.15 Unveiling of the Winning Mural at Rayleigh Station

Back in November, Wyburns pupils participated in an art competition hosted by Abellio Greater Anglia and Rayleigh Through the Looking Glass.  All of the local schools entered and Wyburns won the mural painting section.  On Wednesday, a group of artists joined local dignitaries for the unveiling of the work at Rayleigh Railway Station.  The mural is on permanent display on the Southend-bound platform - so make sure that you look out for it any time you catch a train!

5.6.15 The Great Bee Buzz!

We are really lucky to have been visited by a swarm of honey bees this week!  These amazing creatures are on the move looking for a new place to make a hive and on their way have been resting in our trees.  Unfortunately, a school playground is not a great place for a swarm of bees, so we called John from the Southend Beekeepers' Association to come and help us out.

 

John thought our swarm was quite a large one - holding around thirty to forty thousand honey bees!!  Having put on his protective equipment, he used a vacuum device of his own making to carefully suck the bees off the tree and into a collection box.  He will now take them back to his apiary at Pitsee and give them a new home.

4.6.15 Year 4, 5 and 6 Writtle Farm visit

Year 4, 5 and 6 went to Writtle Agricultural College today to learn all about farming.  It was a very interesting visit and the children learned loads!  Wyburns' pupils shone out with their brilliance - asking insightful questions and showing a great deal of interest.  Well done to everyone who participated and represented the school so well.

2.5.15 Greenpower Goblin Racing @ Dunton

The Wyburns Flyer flew at Dunton on Saturday!!  We had a fabulous time and came away with the prize for Greenest Bodywork!  The children worked brilliantly as a team and the whole occasion was a great success.  Many thanks to Mr K and Mr L for all of their technical support - we couldn't have done it without you.  Thanks also to Rayleigh Motorist Centre, Daws Heath Road, for their assistance in the face of adversity (rayleighmotorist.co.uk).

23.4.15 St George's Day

We were really honoured to attend the St George's Day flag raising ceremony - attended by members of the Rayleigh Town Council and Mark Francois MP.  We waved our flags and felt very proud.  Look out for the article about this in the newspaper. frown

21.4.15 Tri-Golf Tournament

21.4.15 Tri-Golf Tournament  1
Well done Wyburns - Team Golf came 2nd!!!  You played brilliantly and looked fantastic, thanks to our lovely new training tops that were bought for us by the Friends of Wyburns.  As ever, you represented the school brilliantly and made us very proud.

27/3/15 Wyburns' Got Talent!

What can I say?!  The standard of talent on display this year was the highest we've ever had.

 

Archie from Class 4 got the party started, leading us in a fabulous rendition of Spandau Ballet's 'Gold'.  From that point onwards, we had dancers, footy stars, violinists, hula hoopers, comedians, impressionists and singers.  What a range of talents.  Mrs Sansom, Rev. Phil Warrey and I (aka Danni Minogue, Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne - thanks Archie!) found an near impossible task to judge.

 

We did reach consensus, however, and are winners were:

27/3/15 Easter Assembly with Rev. Phil Warrey

We were delighted to welcome Rev. Phil Warrey from Rayleigh Methodist Church back into school today to lead our Easter assembly. 

 

With the help of some Lego pictures and some enthusiastic volunteers, he recreated the story of Jesus' last days and the resurrection as understood by Christians.

 

Many thanks also to the Friends of Wyburns representatives who joined us to draw the Easter Egg raffle - the proceeds of which will be donated back to school to purchase items to enrich the children's learning experiences.  Thank you for your generosity and support.

20/3/15 Junior Governors visit Rayleigh Town Council chambers

Today our Junior Governing Body had the opportunity to visit the chambers of Rayleigh Town Council and meet with the Chairperson - Councillor Eddie Dray.

 

The children learnt about the work and workings of the Town Council and had the chance to ask questions.  They saw the seal of office and the Class 6 representatives even got to wear it! 

 

As usual, the children's behaviour was excellent and they were a real credit to Wyburns.  Well done all of you!

20/3/15 Solar Eclipse Family Morning

Despite Mother Nature's best efforts to dampen our spirits, we enjoyed an excellent morning experiencing the partial solar eclipse today. 

 

It was lovely to see so many families joining us to share in this rare celestial event.  Although we could not see the sun, thanks to the cloud cover, it was noticeably dark, cold and quiet at the height of the eclipse.

 

Many thanks to those of you who joined in with our extra special 'Feel Good Friday'!  And a particular vote of appreciation for the Friends of Wyburns for the very welcome bacon baps and hot drinks.  The money that was raised helped to fund the safety glasses that every child was given as a memento of the day.

 

We really enjoyed ourselves and hope that you did too.

19/3/15 Infant Music Festival

Oh my goodness - your brilliance really shone out today KS1 - we were so proud of you!

 

Your singing was amazing throughout and your performance to the other schools of 'Hey Hey We're the Monkeys' and ''Eye of the Tiger' were fabulous.  You were confident, clear, musical and were clearly enjoying the occasion.

 

Your behaviour all morning was exemplary and it was a real pleasure to accompany you on the trip - well done.

13/3/15 Dress in Disguise for Comic Relief 2

What an amazing day!!  You all looked so fabulous in your disguises - I couldn't recognise anyone!  On top of that, you were raising money for Comic Relief. 

 

A particular well done to Lucas and his friends from Class 5, who organised the after school sale.  It is really great when the children come to us with ideas that will help other people.

 

We will let you know exactly how much we raised when the final count-up is in.

5/3/15 World Book Day

5/3/15 World Book Day 1

On Thursday 5th March we celebrated World Book Day! Each class started the day with a Big Write based on a book they had read in class. We then shared our favourite books with another class. In the afternoon we all designed our own book boxes and completed a range of other activities. Well done Wyburns! What fantastic readers we have! smiley

 

Don't forget your entries to our EXTREME reading competition! Make sure you give them to your teachers by Wednesday at the latest. 

 

More pictures to follow soon......

3/2/15 Y5/6 Sports Hall Athletics

The Sports Hall Athletics event was great fun and there was much brilliance on show. One of the main aspects that stood out for me was CM who won the boys 'get up and run event', which made him the fastest out of all of the schools!  Although, we cannot forget the teachers events - I can't speak for Miss Thoupos, but I thought I was amazing;-). Well done Wyburns you made us very proud once again!

Y6 Raleigh Quiz

Y6 Raleigh Quiz 1
Well done to the Y6 team who represented Wyburns at the annual general knowledge quiz hosted by Rayleigh Town Council.  They swotted and sweated, but sadly it was not our year to get through to the finals!  Nevertheless, we were extremely proud of their performance and they represented Wyburns brilliantly.  Fantastic!laugh

When I Grow Up - from O2 Arena 26.1.15

Wyburns Choir Young Voices @ The O2

Wowweee!!!  OUR BRILLIANCE REALLY SHONE OUT!!  You were fabulous everyone.  You sang like superstars, behaved like angels and were excellent company all day - and it was a long one, so well done. 

 

Despite the A13 being shut, we made in time for the children's rehearsal.  Spirits were high and we danced and sang all afternoon.  The concert itself was spectacular.  The children really enjoyed the performances by the "famous" artists: Lucy Spraggan, Tom Billington and the group Mike Lowry.  I'd be grateful for any clues on who they are!!  The true stars of the show for me were the children.  Wyburns out-sang, out-danced and 'out-behaved' every school around us - we shone.

 

Thank you to everyone who came and supported us.  Hopefully next time we'll be able to secure some seats not up in 'the gods' and you'll be able to see us more clearly - blasted lighting rig!

Sporting Prowess at Deanes 27th Jan

Well done to all of those who took part in the mountain biking or boccia and new age curling events at The Deanes School yesterday. 

Overall we came 4th with a 1st place for DP in the B final and a 3rd place for KS in the A final.  Everybody did really well on a very challenging course.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the boccia and new age curling festival.  It was great to experience some new sports and meet new people.

 

Thank you to all the parents who transported and supported their children. frown

We can't wait to do it again. Well done everybody.  Have a very merry Christmas. 😄

TAG Rugby Tournament

TAG Rugby Tournament 1

Well that was a different experience for all of us - including me! Everyone played their socks off.  We took a heavy beating by Grovewood in our first match, but we picked it up after that; scoring lots of tries and showing some great skills. Well done guys we placed 4th overall and we were really proud of your performance.

Mr Baker

Children In Need Hero Day

Wowee! We had so many heroes in school on Wednesday.  We've never seen so many Batmen, Cat Girls, Spidermen and princesses in one place ever!  We also had some real-life heroes such as, Emily Pankhust, Florence Nightingale and 'My Dad'!  The staff threw themselves into the occasion as well- with Key Stage 1 all coming as The Incredibles.  I'm just sorry I wasn't there to see any of it myself, but I understand there was a special visit from my rather strange cousin, 'Enigma'.  Well done to everyone and thank you for your generosity.  You managed to raise £179.14 for Children in Need.

Remembrance Day Assembly

Remembrance Day Assembly 1
Remembrance Day Assembly 2
Remembrance Day Assembly 3

On Tuesday 11th November the whole school gathered together for a very special Remembrance assembly to commemorate troops from Britain and the Commonwealth and to mark 100 years since the start of World War I.  Children and staff joined together to think about not only those who have lost their lives whilst serving for their country, but also those individuals and families who lives have been effected by conflict.  We watched a short film clip that focused on the poppy installation at the Tower of London and the significance of what it represents.  The whole school then joined together to observe a minute's silence, which concluded with The Last Post.

 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

 

From Laurence Binyon's poem For the Fallen, written in September 1914

Y5/6 Basketball Tournament

There were lots of high spirits at the end of the Basketball tournament.   Unfortunately, we were not quite as successful as last year, but it was a great experience for the team and we played brilliantly. If we'd had one more game I believe we would have won.  You made us all very proud.  Role on future fixtures!

Mark Francois MP Visits Wyburns!

Mark Francois MP Visits Wyburns! 1

Today at school MP Mark Francois came in and spoke to us about Junior Governor meetings and what we do to help the school.  We talked about what is going on inside school and some of the issues in our local community.  We showed him our new code of conduct for moving around school at lunch and break times.  It was really interesting speaking to someone who is an MP and does something similar to us, but in the Houses of Parliament!  It was fun speaking to him and we will hopefully see him again soon.

Wyburns Celebrates 125 Years of the Railway in Rayleigh

Wyburns Celebrates 125 Years of the Railway in Rayleigh 1
On Friday 3rd October, LD and Mrs T joined organisers from Rayleigh Through the Looking Glass to unveil a plaque at Rayleigh Station in celebration of 125 year of the railway in Rayleigh.  Local dignitaries joined with representatives from a handful of Rayleigh's primary schools to reveal the commemorative tablet.  The group then walked to The Crown for afternoon tea - recreating the original walk to the top of Crown Hill, for a cup of tea, undertaken by the passengers of the first train to arrive in Rayleigh.  Wyburns were very proud to be a part of this historic occasion and are looking forward to participating in an art competition to further celebrate the event.

Y5/6 Football Tournament @ Sweyne

Well done to all of the pupils who took part in the recent football tournaments at Sweyne Park School.  You all made us really proud with your excellent performances and team spirit!  A particular well done to the girls who, at their first ever tournament, made it through to the semi-final and finished joint third overall.  You are all brilliant! frown

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Thank you to all of those who joined donated cakes and/or joined us to celebrate the world's biggest coffee morning.  We would like to say a particular thank you to Sainsbury's who supported the event by donating the cakes for the children.  Everyone who participated enjoyed a natter over a cuppa and delicious slice of cake!  Even better - it was for a fantastic cause.  We will let you know how much was raised when Mrs Tkacziw has finished playing accountant!  Thank you. indecision

Harvest Festival 2014

Harvest Festival 2014 1

I had the great pleasure to be invited to take part in your Harvest Festival in September, and it was a wonderful occasion. I was really impressed by the positive and welcoming atmosphere in the school, how well the children behaved, and how keen they were to take part in the harvest service we had. Just simply to see them all coming into the hall with smiling faces, was something that really cheered me, and made my day.

 

It was a joy to be there, and I enjoyed the contributions of each of the classes. It was good to see how encouraging the teachers are, and also the pleasure the teachers had in seeing their students perform so well. It is clear, that you have a good team of teachers at the school.

 

We heard and enjoyed each other’s contributions, we sang together, we thought about the plight of others together, and we prayed. What a wonderful afternoon.

 

Please can you also pass on our thanks for the generosity of the parents and children who brought gifts of food to be distributed to those in need in our area?

 

Regards

 

Phil Warrey (Rev)

 

Thank you everyone for your generosity!indecision

A Concert by Young Leaders from Rayleigh

Since last autumn, six music ensembles made up of primary school children and talented musicians from Fitzwimarc have been meeting. Each group created musical pieces and these were performed in a concert on Friday 4th July at the Mill Hall, Rayleigh. Our ensemble performed their original piece, with confidence, to a packed, very warm, Mill Hall. The creativity and teamwork were' brilliant'. Thank you and well done. surprise  

District Sports

Wowee!  The Wyburns Warriors were absolutely brilliant at District Sports Day this week! laugh

 

They ran, jump and threw their hearts out and made us feel so fantastically proud of them.  They could not have given any more than they did - and, as you can see from our photos, they enjoyed a fabulous morning of sport.

 

Well done to the whole team and many thanks to all of those who came along and supported us.

Tennis Champs May14Year 4 tennis at Deane’s school

Well, what can I say! What an eventful afternoon it was!                 

Everyone played 3 games, each playing one child from each school.

I was really impressed with some of the tennis skills on show, considering the little practice we had- (just keeping a rally going with me!)

No one lost all 3 games, everyone won at least 1 game, S F came out unbeaten winning all 3. Super play!  We ended in second place overall,  losing out by 1 game. We won 14/24 games which I think is brill!

WELL DONE YEAR 4 laugh

Racing at Ford Dunton

'Pure Brilliance!'

A huge thank you to the parents and children of our Kit Car club.

After a 'technical hitch' Mr Stone was unable to attend the event on Saturday 26th April at Ford Dunton. But everyone pulled together to ensure we raced in every event. 'Team Dads' rallied to ensure the car complied with all the rules and in the face of adversity we won the 'Greenist Bodywork Award'.

It was an amazing day enjoyed by all. Fabulous teamwork. You were all brilliant.no  

Basketball @ Grove

Wyburns basketball team showed grit and determination at their friendly against Grovewood last week, 25th April 14. It was fast and furious and we were all on the edge of our seats as basket after basket dropped in; nail biting stuff as the teams were drawing in the final minutes. Well done to Grovewood, who snuck a final ball before the whistle, but fantastic play Wyburns- you were stars! cheeky

Football at Waterside. smiley

 

Tuesday 11th march  Year 3 and 4 footballers excelled at the Castle Point and Rochford Schools football tournament, run by the FA as a fair play tournament. The boys played 6 games and didn’t loose once. They were unbeaten!  It was a super team performance and the boys were a credit to the school.  Many thanks to the parents who stayed and supported on that cold morning! Hopefully this is a sign of thing to come for sports at Wyburns! J
