School Showcase

 

Walking for Charity

 

This year's Sport Relief fundraiser resulted in a £173.48 donation to the charity. The whole school walk around St Nicholas Park combined with a cake sale generated £113.48, while sales of Sports Relief bands raised £60. The children walked a total of 2.32 miles which is a super effort especially as the weather conditions were rather inclement.Everyone joined in with the ‘sporty’ dress code, looked super fit and ready for action, even the staff.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

     

 

 

Gymnastic Fantastic

 

Recently a selection of year 2 children who had shown competence with certain gymnastic skills during PE lessons were chosen to compete at a local games competition. They had to carry out exercises including the vault (mounting and dismounting) and a complicated floor exercise comprising of 22 individual gymnastic skills combined into one sequence. The event was a lot of fun; not only were the children active all afternoon, but they also learnt about being competitive and how important it is to try your best at all times and strive for success. The Emscote teams finished the competition on a high bringing home medals
and certificates! Hermione Gibson was the overall winner of the girls competition, and the Green team came third and Yellow fifth with six schools competing.
The Emscote teams were:

Yellow - Amile Kadone-Mzama, Carter-James Bayley, Jake Wilkin-Mzobe, Ruby Garner, Phoebe Collins, Faith Mann and Alais McCluskey
Green - Jay-Reece Berry, Hal Rollaston, Oscar Westmore, Maggie Denwood-Archer, Marielle Proctor, Fern Aberton and Hermione Gibson

Well done to all the children taking part and a special thank you to Mrs Turner for her support throughout the afternoon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Full Of The Joys Of Spring

 

Spring is in the air, with the delivery of some fertilised eggs which very quickly started hatching. The Living Eggs programme, which we have participated in for many years, provides many great teaching and learning opportunities for the children. You are welcome to come and have a look at the chicks with your child.

 

 

 

 

 

Singing Workshop

 

The school choir enjoyed their recent trip to Symphony Hall in Birmingham to participate in a Music Mark West Midlands Sing! Workshop. The group proudly wore their personalised t-shirts, purchased with funds raised through the sales of choir recordings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

African Link

 

On February 7th we waved goodbye to Mr Hussey as he left for a 10 day trip to Bo in Sierra Leone as part of the British Council’s “Connecting Classrooms” exchange programme. Emscote has been linked with New Gerihun Road Lower School in Bo for over 10 years through One World Link, a community organisation set up 30 years ago to promote friendships between Bo District and Warwick District. Mr Hussey took with him a bannger made by the children as a symbol of our friendship.

 

 

 

 

Singing Stars

 

 

Emscote Voices, the school choir, has won Free Radio's Christmas Stars singing competition. Well done to everyone who took part.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eco Day

 

It was great to see so many people involved with the Eco Day; we were able to tidy up the grounds and plant for the spring, and recycle newspapers into fire logs.

The Great Reading Challenge

 

Here are some of the entries to the Emscote Infant School Reading Challenge, where the school community was encouraged to show the most adventurous place they had read a book over the summer holidays.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Raising the Roof

Emscote Voices made themselves heard at their first public performance recently. The school choir, run by Mr Collier and Miss McLean participated in the Warwick Schools' Midsummer Concert at St Mary's Church on June 25th and made a great impression. Despite being the youngest performers there they sang confidently and by far the loudest and a member of the audience was moved to write to the school to say: "We must congratulate your pupils and hard-working teachers on such a lovely performance last night. It was wonderful to hear and inspiring to see...You choir got it absolutely right."
