Following on from our English unit about Transport and the story 'The Naughty Bus' by Jan and Jerry Oke, Year 1 were extremely excited to welcome the real Naughty Bus to school. We met the bus driver, Dave, who gave everyone a ticket for the bus. He spoke to the children about the story and we had some challenges to complete about Buses. Everyone had a turn at sitting in the drivers seat. We had a fantastic morning with the real Naughty Bus. Afterwards, the children made thank you cards to send to Dave.

On 5th October 2018, 12 of our Y1 and 2 children represented our school at the Early Excellence Centre in Huddersfield. Our school was selected from all schools in the North of England to be included in the new Early Excellence publication which is a fantastic achievement. The children were excited to arrive at the wonderful Northern Centre and didn’t hesitate in settling into exploring the beautiful resources on offer. Lindsey, the photographer, worked with the children to create amazing photographs of them engaging with new resources. We can’t wait to see all the photos!

To start the new year, all classes at Essa Primary took part in the Transport Project. Each class focused on a particular form of transport. Year 2 were looking at aeroplanes and the life of Amelia Earhart. To help us learn more about flight, we went to Manchester Airport. We took a tour of the education centre. Along the way, we looked at Concorde, sat in the flight deck of a Monarch jet, talked to air traffic control and investigated a research plane.
We were able to ask lots of questions to the helpful staff and learnt that the easy way to remember Concorde’s top speed uses odd numbers! It was able to fly at 1350 miles per hour, so you just have to remember the first three odd numbers.
As the weather was fine, we were able to stand on the mound and watch lots of planes land and take off on what was a very busy day at the airport.
Once we were back in school, we wrote all about our trip and used things we had learnt to write a postcard to Emma-Jane, from the book ‘Emma-Jane in her aeroplane’. We had a great time at the airport and are looking forward to many more school trips in Year 2.

Children at Essa Primary enjoyed a special day yesterday to celebrate St. George's day. They started the day with a special assembly, with many children choosing to come to school in the colours of St. George's flag. During the day the children took part in different activities to learn more about St. George and how we celebrate this special day in England.

Teamwork will be used in the next half term by helping return things to their rightful owner. Or you could help someone up if they trip over something. Teamwork will also be well used in P.E. We will encourage our teams to win but if you do win, you shouldn’t show off about it. If you lose, you should be resilient and give them a tough game next time.
Mr Reddy, thank you for supporting us in our work and making our work very fun by doing fun activities. It was very helpful of you coming to our school to help children like us in Year 5. It was very kind of you coming here at Essa Primary Academy. Thanks Mr Reddy for helping us Believe, Commit and Achieve!
