The children in Year 3 recently took part in a competition organised by Clacton Pier in which they each had the opportunity to write a poem about their experiences of the pier. The winners attended a small dedication event where their work was placed into a time capsule that would be buried underneath an exciting new development on the site. The children were given a special behind the scenes tour and talk about the new development, due to be opened in July. Each child in the Year group was then awarded a £5 voucher to spend on the pier.
Some of our pupils attended a "Gifted & Talented Day" at St James School in Colchester. The children were brilliantly behaved and a real credit to your school. We hope they enjoyed themselves and learned some new skills.
Children enjoying a morning at The Royal Hospital School. Before we went to see their Church Organ we played in the sun.
The organ was amazing and has 6000 pipes. We listened to it, saw how it works and sang to it. It was quite difficult to hear in the chapel there as it echoes.
It is with regret that we announce that our school remains closed on Friday (02/03/2018) due to treasurous conditions.
We hope to be back to normal by the beginning of next week. However, please check our website on Sunday for further updates.
After much consideration, heavy snow overnight and continuing difficult road conditions we have decided to remain closed on 01/03/2018.
This decision has not been taken lightly, however, must be made to ensure the safety of all children and staff.
Thank you for your understanding and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Just look at this site.The perfect layer of snow surrounds our school today. Snowmen were built and the children had lots of fun playing in this white, fluffy delight.

The pupils of Great Clacton C of E Junior School (also known as ‘The workforce of tomorrow’) had the opportunity to take part in the first ever careers fair.
Professionals from many different businesses came to share their knowledge about their jobs, so the children could find out what may lie ahead for them.
Some of these careers included: Fire fighters, Nurses, A Scientist, Engineer, Train drivers and your everyday ASDA Worker!
Overall the children were surprised at how many different jobs were available and found the event very inspirational!
