Junior Citizens Event

Year 6 were delighted to attend this annual event in conjunction with the Police.

Amoungst other things they got to learning about personal safety, public transport, fire safety, littering, road safety, knife crime and substance abuse.

They had a great time and were very respectful of what was being discussed.

Well done Year 6! 


Year 2 Visit Mountfitchet Castle

As part of their learning about castles through their theme 'Are all castles bouncy' the children visited Mountfitchet Castle.

During their time there they got to learn about how castles work, about the building, they got to launch water catapults and lots more.

They all had a great time (as did the adults) and were fabulous Clockhouse Citizens representing the school in a way that made us all very proud! Well done Year 2!
