On Thursday the 29th February, we took over 40 KS2 children to a cross-country event. In the morning, Year 3 and 4 took part in four events – 6 children in each event. In the first event, the Year 3 girls performed brilliantly. Within individual performances, we had a 1st and 3rd place finish and the team came first overall; they actually had the lowest team score of the whole day. Next up were the Year 3 boys. They also performed outstandingly and, individually, we had a 1st and 3rd place. They also won in the team event too. After, it was the Year 4 girls. They all ran really well and their performances were really strong. Finally, in the morning session it was the turn of Year 4 boys. We managed to secure an individual 3rd place finish and the boys also came third in the team event.

In the afternoon, the Year 5 and 6 took part in their four events. They all had the short straw as the weather changed considerably in the afternoon and it rained. Considering the weather, all the children did their best and represented the school really well. Year 5 were up first and they did a brilliant job. The boys and girls both finished 2nd overall as a team which was a great result. Then it was Year 6. It started to rain even harder before they started but you could see the determination on their faces to complete the race. Considering the weather, it was a great event and all the children did an amazing job taking part and representing the school.

Boys football
On Wednesday the 28th February, the boys played their forth league game of the season away to Kirby. After a disappointing loss to Rolph last time out, even though they played really well, the boys rallied together for a tough battle. Games are always close between us and Kirby. In the first half, we went 1-0 up with a wonder goal. Kirby pulled one back just before halftime. In the second half, we scored a great freekick that was drilled along the ground into the bottom left corner. We managed to keep the lead and, after a nailing biting last few minutes, the game finished with Tendring winning 2-1. Well done boys.
Boys football

On Tuesday 6th February, the boys had their second game of the season and it was a home match against St Philomena's. From kick off, the boys controlled the game and pressed very well. The first half was very much played in St Philomena's half and we went into the half time break 2-0 up. In the second half, they boys worked on space and timing and finished the game 5-0 winners. It was also fantastic to have 5 different goal scorers. It was a very good performance from everyone and that is now two wins from two. 

Indoor Athletics

On Thursday 8th of February, a selection of children from Key Stage 2, represented Tendring Primary school in an Indoor Athletics competition. In PE lessons before Christmas, the children completed 6 lessons based on all of the activities that were going to be in the competition. This event allowed the children to use what they have been taught. Eighteen children had to take part in 4 events across the afternoon (2 field events and 2 track events). The first half was based on the field events and it was great to see the children all taking part and giving their all for the school. Once everyone had completed their field events, it was time for the running races. There were 4 teams in the competition and overall Tendring finished 2nd and came 1st in the small schools. This means, the children will now be going to the Essex University next Friday for the District finals. It was great to see the children cheering everyone on yesterday and they were a credit to the school. 

Girls Football

On Thursday 1st of February, the girls football team had an away fixture against Frinton Primary School. It was third time lucky due to the other games being called off due to the British weather. It was our first game in a few months so the girls were raring to go. We unfortunately went 1-0 down but that didn’t impact the girls at all. The girls kept on fighting and produced a final score of 7-7. A great match for the neutral to watch as it was end to end and it was great to see the girls all play with a smile on their face. It was a first game for a few of the girls and it was great to see them play and be part of the team. The girls have two fixtures booked in for after half term and they can’t wait for their next game. 

Class Assemblies and Presentations

During March, each class will be doing an assembly/presentation to show their families what they have been learning. The dates for these are listed in the calendar. If you are coming to your child's assembly, park in the Parish Council and School Meadow car parks. Where possible, please car share to ensure there is still room for parents collecting at pick-up. 

The assemblies will start at 2:45pm and the back gate will be opened at 2:40pm for 10 minutes to allow parents to come in and make their way to the school hall.

Tendring Recycling Project
This term a new bench has arrived on the KS2 playground for the children to use and enjoy. It is a really special bench because it is made completely from recycled plastic. The recycling team were able to "purchase" the bench for the school, using the tokens earnt by collecting plastic bottle tops - just one of the many recyling streams they provide.

Together we have collected an extraordinary 140,000 Earth Tokens and recycled 560kg of plastic! We are well on our way towards a second bench, so please keep collecting those lids. 


Tendring Ambassador Project
On Wednesday 15th November 2023, the year 5’s at Tendring Primary School participated in the Tendring Junior Ambassador Project Celebration Event following learning about different cultures this term. We learned about hate crime, Chinese calligraphy, African singing and story telling, the Ukranian culture aswell as having an author and artist visit too. Finally, it was the day of the celebration event, we were also lucky enough to be taught Bollywood dancing on the day. We all tried our hardest with our dance and absolutely SMASHED it on the stage! Even other schools and the audience (the parents) joined in.  It was so much fun and we all enjoyed it.

Multi-Sports event

A group of Year 6 boys had a great time attending a Multi-Activity event at TTC this week. Alfie, Stephen, Ben and Lochy had the opportunity to take part in a variety of sports including: Boccia, Table Cricket, Kurling, Polybat, Sitting Volleyball and Target Throwing. They had some amazing shots, especially whilst playing Boccia and Kurling, Alfie getting a near perfect shot on his first go at Kurling, with his Kurling Stone stopping almost dead centre. Lochy wowed with his winning shot in Boccia and Stephen getting his ball in the circle gaining extra points for the boys. Ben was our Polybat table whizz, getting the shots returned nearly every time. Well done boys.

Year 3 Stone Age Day

On Wednesday 22nd November, Hares' class had a 'Stone Age Day' provided by Victrix. The children were able to use what they have learnt in History and apply this throughout the day. They had the chance to look at and feel different stone age tools. Additionally, they got the chance to understand how to hunt deer and how quiet they needed to be. In the afternoon, they got to experience different stone age stories, while acting them out and finally, different tribe songs and how people communicated throughout the stone age period.  The children had a great day and it was brilliant to see them all go home with a smile on their face. Thank you to Victrix for coming in to give the children the experience of what it was like during the stone age era. 

Children in Need

Well done to Mrs Thornton and the Pupil Council for all their work to ensure that our Children in Need day was a success. Together we raised over £345! 


Every year our school supports the Poppy Appeal and the Remembrance Assembly is a standout moment in the autumn term. This year Badgers class led the school in a beautiful moment of reflection, where the school community came together to be silent and present a wreath from each class.

The House Captains spent their playtimes selling poppies, and other items, to raise money and awareness. This year your generousity meant that we were able to donate £397.33.
