This week at Pitsea Junior School we are learning all about WW1 and WW2. We have lots of visitors coming in to talk to us about the war and show us artefacts...INCLUDING REAL WEAPONS!! We will be engraving metal, making our own poppies, researching past relatives, reciting war poetry and much, much more!
On Friday parents are invited into the school to see the children's work and take part in our own poppy planting ceremony. We have also turned the school into a WW1 exhibition. Thank you to Mrs Balkwill, Mrs Thomas and Mrs Donoghue for their hard work over the weekend setting it up.
This is our year 5 project 'On The Line' created with Christopher Harrup.

Sunday November 16th
We had a wonderful week of activities to commemorate WW1 centenary last week. Our visitors from Wat Tyler, Education group and the Bay Museum really bought the week alive. The children have been fully engrossed in the topic and it has really built on our first 3 school values; responsibilty, respect and compassion.
Many of you have commented on our poppy field, which from afar look like ceramic ones. The children have also produced some poignant letters, diaries and poems. Some of this work will contribute towards the 'Never Forget' Basildon Heritage Exhibition which is travelling to France and Germany.Thank you to all of the parents that came in to view the exhibits on Friday afternoon and to our dedicated staff that have worked so hard to make the week such a success.
This week the Netball team have their first friendly match against Bardfield Primary on Tuesday after school. We wish them luck!
Year 3 and 4 have fire safety talks on Thursday provided by the Essex Fire Service.
Two of our Governors are joining us this week , one looking at Maths in the school and the other monitoring how we cater for our children with special needs.
We wish you all a lovely week.
