Aspiration Week!

We have made the press!  Click the picture below to take you to the full article in the Romford Recorder!



We had some lovely visitors last week who made some really lovely comments about our children, about their manners, their behaviour and the questions they asked.  We had train drivers, firemen, a tree surgeon, air ambulance, personal trainers, the Queen's Theatre, police, museums, scientists, GP, local traders and much more - even the mayor and deputy mayor!  They all gave talks to the children about their chosen careers.  I hope that you were able to join us last Friday after school to see a selection of the work they produced.  Below are a few photos and quotes from the week.



   


'I was so impressed with yesterday that I had to drop you a line.  I was really surprised at the attention given by the students and the questions fired at me were quite challenging at times, some of which blew me away in that students this young would even think of some of the engineering challenges that I have to consider!  In fact, I found that I got higher quality and more 'on topic' questions than what I would normally get from senior school students and your classes were far more attentive.  Hopefully I inspired a few students to consider engineering - I certainly saw some wide-eyed open-mouthed surprised expressions!! - and I was certainly inspired by what I saw yesterday, both from general discipline and class participation.  The students are a credit to you and your team of teachers, keep up the excellent work.'

'I'm glad your students found the theatre talk/activity interesting and educational and it's fantastic that they now want to go and see a show.  I think Aspirations Week is such a brilliant initiative and a massive hats off to you for pulling it all together.  Your students were so well behaved and attentive - they were a real pleasure to work with and a credit to the school.'

World Book Day 2018



A week later than planned, Crownfield Junior celebrated World Book Day!  Thanks to all of you who made, borrowed or bought costumes or the children to wear.  The day was brilliant, full of different activities and certainly lots of fun!  From making robots, and singing 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow', to taking part in quizzes and drawing on the playground like the scene from Mary Poppins, the theme of Fantasy Lands was enjoyed by all!  Hope you enjoy the selection of photos from the day as well as a clip of the children singing.  Enjoy!



'World Book Day was really fun.  I loved everything like dressing up and the quiz.  I would like to have a quiz more often!' - 4S
