Lots of great running by everyone! Although I think I did more running than the children did!
Wyburns children where brilliant as always!
A cold to warm afternoon at the Hockey tournament. Most of the team had never played a competitive game of hockey and only tried it in P.E lessons. It was a slow start but we soon picked it up and finished 4th out of 6 schools. Not bad, not bad at all!
We all left feeling very inspired on Monday afternoon as we had John from 'Power 2 Inspire' in to visit us. He was born without hands and feet but came to talk to us about how he had completed 34 Olympic and Paralympics Sports on the Road2Rio challenge! WOW!
It was truly inspirational the amount of resilience he had shown! We were buzzing! It truly showcased the Wyburns Motto and the '5 Rs' we all aspire to at school.
You got the Power in You!!
What challenges can you take on?
Rock Steady Music Assembly
We were treated to a whole school assembly from Rock, Steady, Music! He played us some brilliant tunes on the electric guitar, the electric drums and the keyboard. He definitely had us all bopping along. We impressed him with our own Rock Talents - a full rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody!
Keep Rockin Wyburns!!
This one is always a fun event! We came 6th out of 11 schools.
Nice one Wyburns!
Another level 2 event. We started off slowly but after an inspirational team talk from me and Mrs Edmonds, we won 3 games on the bounce and only lost 2! We were so unlucky not to make the semi final!
We all played exceptionally well and I am very proud of you all.
Well done Wyburns!
Crackers, Singing and more importantly, dinner!
Christmas dinner was another special occasion. We decided to change it this year to make this experience even more enjoyable.
Each class had to design and create their own Christmas table. We had it all, from Snowmen centre pieces to unusual, and very funny, Christmas hats. Reverend Phil joined us for this special occasion and was a guest judge! He decided which class won the most decorated Christmas table. Results are in and a big well done to Class 7 and Class 6 whose tables were beautiful.
The dinner was yummy this year, the children were each given a special plate and were allowed to go up for seconds followed by a very delicious desert.
A big thank you to all the staff and chefs who made this event extra special.
EYFS Christmas performance.
AH! This Christmas play was magical! The children performed brilliantly and we all learned a very valuable message - its best to work together to get a job done. I hope snow falls over Rayleigh so we can make some more fantastic snow men too!
A big well done to all the children in Class 1 who took part. It was amazing!
Countdown to Christmas!
Wow! What a performance, Key Stage One you knocked our socks off! Your Christmas performance was brilliant. I could hear every word that you sung and said, your acting skills were fantastic and you had your parents laughing, crying and smiling the whole time!
I think if Simon Cowell was watching he would be saying "It's a yes from me!"
Well done Key Stage One you made us all very proud.
What a brilliant trip to the Towngate Theatre in Basildon! It was so brilliant to take the whole school out for the afternoon and the children really enjoyed the performance of Sleeping Beauty! With dancing, singing, time travel and a giant dragon, it really was a great afternoon!
As usual, the children of Wyburns showed their brilliance! They were all superstars and represented the school so well. It was a pleasure to take them all out for the day...although none of them shared their sweets!
Christmas Lights 2016
Once again, Year 6 took to the stage in dazzling fashion to perform to Rayleigh High Street at the Christmas Lights Switch on! They were absolutely fantastic and so many people have commented on how their performance was by far the loudest and the most enthusiastic! I have to say, although I am a little biased, I totally agree!
Well done Year 6!
Children in Need
Spots, Spots and even more Spots!
Wow! Wyburns were invaded today by lots of SPOTS! We had spots in our hair, spots on our clothes and even spots on our face! We had a fantastic day raising lots of money for Children in Need. We will inform you of the grand total in our newsletter.
Thank you everyone for your contributions!
Our Basketball team were fantastic, they played to the best of their ability considering we were drawn into a hard group and some of the team had never played a competitive match before. But if I must pick a player of the tournament it would be…….myself for refereeing most of the games J ! Well done basketball team. Hopefully we will have some more fixtures soon - watch this space.
Mr Baker J
Another day, another level 2 competition. Once again the children gave it there all, the children worked as a team and played exceptionally well! The children won 3 games but unfortunately lost 3. We came 4th out of 8 teams and we are all very proud of you! Well done dodge ball team!
Stand up to Cancer
Thank you everyone for supporting such a worthwhile cause. We have raised nearly £200 which is brilliant so thank you all!
We were overwhelmed with your book competition entries!
Well done everyone. there were some absolutely brilliant new book covers! It was so hard to pick a winner but we finally made a decision.....
Janie, Finley, Amy, Elliot and Sienna
What a fabulous display we have in the library now!
Wow! What a brilliant week. There was so much going on in school this week. I saw cooking lessons, dancing, music, history, art....so much happening! Each class studied a country for an extra special week of learning.
Class 1 - Italy
Class 2 - Australia
Class 3 - China
Class 4 - Kenya
Class 5 - Thailand
Class 6 - USA
Class 7 - Greece
Class 8 - India
It all ended with a trip to the CLC on Friday. Children then had a South American theme and explored the amazing sensory room, deafened everyone in the music room and completed some writing, art and geography activities using the Ipads.
A MASSIVE thank you to Miss Campbell and Miss Fagence who organised the whole days events and well done to all the children for throwing themselves in to the task with enthusiasm.
Level 3 Parish Cup (football)
Wyburns 2-3 Plumberow
Team:- Justin, Dylan, Tayla , Louie, Sam , Ella, Harley, Lucas, Harry , Max , Daniel and Trinity.
Well girls where do I start?
You blew me away with your performance, not only were they unbeaten in the group they also scored the highest points in the whole tournament.
Unfortunately we did lose in the semi-final 1-0 but we then went on to win the 3rd place play-off, winning 1-0 to come third. Considering, for some of the girls, it was their first time playing, you wouldn’t have even know! Raya was voted our player of the tournament with an amazing performance between the sticks. Trinity was our top goal scorer.
Roll on the league games!
WOW! What a way to start our hectic level 2 competition schedule.
The team had to play tough opposition in the group stage but with 2 wins, a draw and 2 losses they made the quarter finals. Unfortunately we lost on penaltys but the boys were very pleased with the results and the way they played.
I was very pleased with every players performances and the positive attitude throughout the day.
Goals came from Tayla who scored 5 and Harley who scored 1!
Thank you every one for supporting our coffee morning to raise money for MacMillan. It really is such a worthwhile cause. I enjoyed chatting with so many of you (and eating that delicious chocolate cake!).
Thank you to Sainsbury's local who once again donated cakes for the event. And of course a big thank you to Mrs Tkacziw for organising!
Watch this space and we will let you know how much we have raised soon.....
Wow! Look at all that food! Thank you every one for all of your donations. I think this is the best yet! Well done Team Wyburns!
The harvest assembly was a massive success. Thank you Reverend Phil again for coming to visit us. We also had some excellent poems and songs from each class. My personal favourite was Class 1 - Big, Red Combine Harvester! What brilliance you showed!
We had a visitor from Hopeworks who collected all of the donations. Last year, the donations from Wyburns fed 1000 people. I think we may have topped it this year.
A big thank you to Miss Campbell who organised this year's celebration.
