Well that is that then... Watch our video - a year in the life of Clockhouse!

Dear Clockhouse Community

We have come to the end of the year and what a year it has been. Now that we have all had a few days away and the Summer holiday is well underway, I just wanted to spend sometime reflecting on the previous year and what we have all achieved together.

We have achieved amazing things once again this year and it is not until you have the chance to sit back and think about this that you realise all that we have done. This year with the support of the whole Clockhouse Community we have achieved amazing things. We have raised more money for charity and our children have worked hard to achieve great things. From singing at the O2 and Queens Theatre to achieving great things in sport. From coming 3rd in the borough maths competition to some brilliant performances on our school stage - Christmas Concerts, Achievement Assemblies and not forgetting our very own performances of the Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast to name but a few. From Best of British Week to World Cup Day. These are just some of our achivements and the children and staff have worked so hard to achieve all of this. The 'icing on the cake' had to be Year 6's amazing SATs results which puts us above the national average, they certainly did themselves, us and their parents proud! 

Thanks to the support from the Clockhouse families, we have been able to significantly enrich the curriculum for the children from visitors into school to trips out - without your support in this it would not be possible! Year 1 certianly had a fabulous time on their trip to Southend, Year 2 had a great time at Colchester Zoo and met a very sepcial person, whilst the Year 3 trip to Barleylands was enjoyed by all. Year 4 had lots of fun at Paradise Wildlife Park with Year 5 enjoying thier first residential to Condover Hall and Year 6 having a great time at the British Museum to name but a few. Reception and Nursery even enjoyed lots of opportunities to share their learning with thier families and had a great time at Pirates and Princesses Day!

Whilst this is only a small snap shot of our year, it would be hard to capture it all we have certianly achieved a lot with everyones hard work and support - thank you! Please follow the link below to our own special review of the year:

As one year draws to a close and we all take a well earned break, we begin to make plans for the new year and we look forward to next year with excitement and antisipation. Clockhouse has done well this year and it is a good place to be. Whatever the new year does bring, together we will work our hardest for the very best for your children and with yours and their support anything is possible.

As you know, we return to school on Wednesday 5th September and we look forward to welcoming everyone and to hear about their holidays.

Good luck to all those moving on to pastures new in September, we will miss you all but know that you are more than ready for the next phase of your life. Finally, from myself and on behalf of the staff and governors, all that leaves me to say is a huge thank you for everything you have done this year, Clockhouse would not be in the place it is without you all. I hope you have a great summer whatever you are doing and enjoy a well earned rest.

Here's to a great 2018-2019 whatever it may bring.

Have a good one!

There is still more to do, please let us know if you have an hour to spare - we would appreciate your help!

Getting Creative in Early Years

The children had a great time learning all about summer and the seaside. 

As you can see they got lots from all the amazing things on offer to them!

Doesn't it look fun!

Year 4 Science Fun

Year 4 really enjoyed their theme last half term learning about all things outdoors.

They had a great time exploring the school ground carrying out a Science experiment!

Staff v Parents

Just before the end of term the staff took on the Year 6 parents in a cricket match.

Lots of fun was had by all but a big well done to the parents who once again retained the trophy with a convincing win over the school staff!
