An afternoon of fun at the Christmas Bazaar ...


They fought for us,

Through the dirt and dust,

They risked their lives, and tried to survive

Now on the ground their bodies lie, 

They never got to say goodbye.

But we will remember, 

We will never forget,

The soldiers in World War 1

Homework Award - 12th October 2018

Introducing our new School Council Members for the coming year. 

Today in assembly we celebrated ‘Roald Dahl Day’. UKS2 tried hard to guess characters which were shown to them from the Roald Dahl books such as; Charlie Bucket from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The boy from The Witches and Lavender from Matilda. The children knew all of them and even knew that Quentin Blake illustrated the books for Roald Dahl.   All the children agreed that Roald Dahl’s books are a firm favourite here at Grange.

Following on from the playground competition we ran earlier in the year - the winners all got together to talk through their ideas with a lady from the company that will be designing our new adventure playground.  This should be able to start in the Autumn after a great year of fundraising from the PTA.

Harvest Festival at Grange

This morning we all enjoyed a Harvest Festival assembly.  Each year group sang or read special Harvest poems.  We were overwhelmed with everybody's generosity. Thank you all very much.

Harvest Poem

When you open up your cupboards what do you see?
Plenty of tasty food for you and me
I know is might seem strange to you
But lots of people dont have enough food

In Africa, Asia and Europe too
Hungry people don't know what to do
But also in Basildon and Wickford
Even in Runwell, people are struggling.

A food bank is a place where you can donate
To help local families put on their plate
Soup, pasta, sugar and rice
Also some ceral would be nice.

At Harvest time there's food to share
To show the world how much we care
People near and far, we need to help them all
That's why we have Harvest Festival.
