Huge congratulations to Lucien Esenbel in Year 5 for his success at last night’s Enfield Mayor’s Awards for Writing. Lucien’s story (which can be read here) was given first prize in both his age group and the overall primary award. This is a massive achievement; his story was judged to be highly original and was judged against competing schools from across the borough. Lucien was presented with his trophy, medal and certificates at last night’s highly prestigious event. We are delighted for Lucien and extremely proud of this phenomenal achievement.
Mayor’s Award for Visual Arts
Congratulations to Leyland Chin-Hughes in Year 5 for being highly commended for his piece of art work ‘My London’ in the Mayor’s Awards for Visual Arts that were held last week. Leyland’s print of the London skyline was described as ‘a cheerful and optimistic vision of high-rise living with confident use of bright colours’.
School Debating Team Success
Congratulations to Worcesters’ Debating Team 2 who have made it through to the Enfield Town Schools’ Partnership Debating Competition final, after the semi-final that was held on Wednesday 25th April at George Spicer Primary School. Two teams from Worcesters were entered in to the competition and they had to compete against 3 other schools in front of a large, unknown audience. Their topics, which were ‘This house believes zoos are cruel places to keep animals’ and ‘Superheroes are good role models’, produced a lot of heated and good natured discussions and demonstrated the children’s abilities to think quickly, communicate clearly and talk persuasively about their points of view. The teams showed a lot of determination to succeed, including working at home on their own research and speeches. Both teams were excellent ambassadors for our school and their contributions to the debate were exceptional.
Team 2 will now go on to the final to compete against another three schools to find an overall winner on Thursday 24th May.
Mayor’s Award for Writing and Mayor’s Award for Visual Arts
We are delighted that two of our pupils have been shortlisted for these prestigious awards which are held annually in Enfield. The Mayor’s Award for Writing recognises young authors; all children in our year 5 had the opportunity to write an imaginative story based on the theme of movement. Two of these stories were then selected to be submitted to the judging panel.
Lucien in year 5 has been shortlisted for the Mayor’s Award for Writing for his imaginative story entitled ‘Fire’. In his story, based on the true events of the fire of London in 1666, Lucien imagines he is the fire and explores how the fire travels. You can read his story here.
Leyland, also in year 5, has been shortlisted for the Mayor’s Award for Visual Arts. His submission, entitled My London, used printing and collage to create a London skyline and landscape.
We want to congratulate both pupils and wish them good luck for the prize ceremonies which will be held in April.
World Book Day
On Friday 23rd February, Worcesters celebrated World Book Day with children (and all adults!) dressing up as their favourite character from a book. The children all brought their favourite books to school and shared them with their class and teachers swapped classes and got the opportunity to read their favourite story. We also raised £400 for books for our school library.
Thank you to all the parents who attended the ‘Online Safety’ morning workshop. We were lucky to have Fateh Sing deliver this workshop for the parents. We hope you found it useful and are continuing to keep your children safe online!
Crime and punishment at Forty Hall
Year 6 went to Forty Hall to learn more about crime and punishment. They learnt about real-life cases from the 17th century in the local area, such as the ‘Witch of Edmonton’, and even had a go in the stocks!
British Values Day
Worcesters is proud to celebrate British Values Day. The children and staff dress in the colours of the Union Jack and we have some very fun lessons planned!
Worcesters’ Sports Event
As part of our healthy lifestyles campaign, Worcesters held a Sport Event after school. The aim of the event was to encourage parents and children to take part in taster sessions of different sports, dance and fitness activities. The free sporting activities were provided by staff and local sports clubs who had been invited along. The event was a huge success and feedback from parents has been very positive. A grand total of £859.00 was raised from the event which will be put towards a defibrillator for the school.
The school is taking part in a number of ‘Bike It’ activities, a coffee morning has been held for parents and we had a ‘Bling your Bike’ day where children were encouraged to ride or cycle to school on bikes that they had decorated. Bikes and awards were given out in an assembly at the end of the day. More events are planned.
