Skip Beatz Growth Mindset Event: September 2021


What a fantastic start to the new academic year! SEJ welcomed Pete from Skip Beatz, three times skipping world champion, who wowed and amazed us all with his talents – who knew that a simple skipping rope could be spun so quickly and in so many different manoeuvres! With his dynamic, energetic, and inspiring assembly initiating two days of amazing workshops, there was a huge buzz around the school with lots of excited pupils eager to take part in the skipping workshops. Growth mindset was in abundance as the children took on each challenge and the workshops really helped to embed our school values of showing perseverance and courage when faced with a new task. It was a great day with lots of children leaving with a ‘skip’ in their step and a newfound skill to rehearse. 


History Week: May 2021

Year 3 had a fantastic week learning about the Romans. They kick started their journey back in time by researching the rotten Romans and their gruesome habits. They then jumped into character to re-enact a Roman battle. 

Year 4 have a had a fantastic week exploring the Viking world and learning about the Viking Gods. They also enjoyed re-enacting a Viking invasion. Dramatic expression was in abundance as the children adopted their character roles and perfected the Viking lifestyle brilliantly. It truly was a fully immersive and fantastic week of learning about the Vikings.  


Year 5 are still in de-Nile about history week coming to an end, but what a fantastic week it was!  The children transformed themselves into an Egyptian pharaoh focusing on the shapes, patterns and eye make-up that played a big part of Egyptian life. When it was time to get active, the children showed a great determination and perseverance in learning some Egyptian dance moves to form their own sequence. 


Year 6 have been learning all about Mexico and the Maya. Dressed in Mexican or Mayan themed attire, they explored this unique country, from its towering temples and stunning geography, to its intriguing history and fun festivals! While transported back to 250AD, Year 6 learnt about the Mayan way of life including home, diet, beliefs and inventions.
