We take school-home communication very seriously at Engayne Primary. Parents should feel confident that their children are getting the very best education in our friendly, nurturing environment. Children’s successes should be celebrated so that they feel proud of their work and motivated to improve. Magical moments happen every day at our school and we hope that this blog helps to capture some of them.
SUMMER 2 KS1 BLOG
At the very end of Summer 1 Year Two welcomed a theatre workshop kindly funded by the EPFA. The workshop was a geographical one based on their St Lucia studies.
As you can see the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and retained lots of information from their “journey” to the island.
We also came together as a school to celebrate the 60th birthday of our school cook Jean. The school captains organised decorations, served Jean lunch and organised for her 2 grandsons to eat with her! Mrs Sankey stepped in to assist with school lunches
Early in the half term Year Two visited Leigh on Sea as part of their geography topic on islands.
The weather was a little overcast but the children had a great day exploring the town and comparing the facilities with St Lucia. As well as the boats and sea food business’ we also spent some time on the beach. We even had our own train!
Teachers and pupils got into the circus scene on Thursday 21st June with staff and pupils dressing as circus performers.
Year 1 and 2 had fun and games with West Ham United who visited for a day

The Year Two carnival was performed to parents in the first week of July! It was a wonderfully colourful event full of music and dancing. The cakes were really tasty and made with tropical ingredients. The children repeated the performance to the rest of Key Stage One. All profits form the event were donated to Forest School for equipment
Thursday 12th July saw us celebrate the success of the enterprise projects undertaken this year. The science dome was hired for the day using the proceeds of the Xmas enterprise and Y1 café. All the chn had a terrific dinosaur experience and enjoyed an ice lolly in the shade later in the day!
This half term we also harvested our potatoes! Every class planted a seed potato and has looked after it and watched it grow. It has been a terrific project for the whole school and the children have learned a lot about the seasons and plants from the experience
So here we are in our final week of term!
