Summer Dreams

Wishing all our families a wonderful Summer break.  We are already excited for new adventures in September but the children have worked very hard this year and they have earned a fantastic, fun-packed holiday!  The same goes for our teachers!!

Here are the two poems Mrs Baker has read to children and families this week after the Year 6 performances.  The words perfectly match our ethos and philosophy here at Lawford Mead.

See you in September!

Kind online

 

We discussed online safety in our KS2 assembly again today, just in time for the school holidays when children may be spending more time on digital devices.

What messages stand out to you from this video on cyber bullying that we watched together?

What positive things can we do to take care of ourselves…and each other?

Mr P

Be smart and stay safe…

I hope you wouldn’t ride a bike without a helmet…

And I’m sure you wouldn’t run across a road without looking…

But do you use social media without privacy settings in place?

Some of our pupils tell us they use apps like Whatsapp, music.ly and Instagram.  Some even chat with people online when playing on their xbox or playstation.

We watched the video below  in a KS2 assembly.  What can you learn from it?

Find out more here if you are a pupil and here if you are a parent.

What are your top tips for staying safe online?  Leave a comment.

Chelmsford & District Junior Schools Music Festival

Well done to the KS2 choir for an amazing performance at the Chelmsford & District Junior Schools Music Festival at the Civic Theatre.

The children joined choirs from several schools across Chelmsford  to perform as one large choir, singing a selection of modern and traditional songs to an audience of 500 people!.

The children had worked very hard with Mrs Wilson and Mrs Tuck on the songs they performed and it certainly paid off. They made us and themselves extremely proud.

Mr P

Heat Wave!

Lots of shelters and water stations set up at break and lunchtime today so children could keep cool and hydrated.

Don’t forget to apply sun cream before school this week and bring in a water bottle and sunhat every day.

Stay cool everybody!

FUDGE Morning

Thanks to all the fathers, uncles, step-dads and grandads that joined us this morning for animation, German, PE, reading and lessons in class.

We love welcoming in families to be a part of the school day and it means a great deal to the children.

Please leave a comment below and keep an eye out for a gallery on the Highlights page, where there will be another comments box.

Thanks to all who have been able to join us for any of our parents events this year.  If you haven’t been able to take part we hope you can next time.

Chelmsford junior parkrun – Sunday June 11th

This coming Sunday we hope to get as many Lawford Mead families there as possible!

Find out more here (it only takes a moment to register and print off a barcode) and we hope to see you there.

Don’t forget to wear red so we can make our presence felt!

Grangewaters Tales

Wishing all our Lawford Mead families a relaxing and refreshing half term break.

We can’t wait to hear more tales from children who went to Grangewaters when pupils return on June 6th.

We’ve loved following the Lawford Mead Twitter feed and hearing what an amazing time has been had by all.

Leave a comment below with a question for the Grangewaters crew or, if you were there, tell us some of the highlights!

Thanks to the staff team who made the week such a success.

Mr P

Bench Buddies!

Than you to the Parents Association for their latest gift to the school, picnic benches for the playgrounds!  As well as all the physical activities on offer during breaks and lunchtimes, children now have the choice to sit in comfort and draw, read or just chat with their friends!

What are your favourite lunchtime activities?
