Colchester Castle Trip
On Tuesday 26th May, we went to the Colchester Castle because in class we have been learning about medieval times and castles. There was a plenty to see and do and learners enjoyed the day, they particularly liked visiting the Dungeon. They also got a chance to try on clothes and helmets. Luckily we managed to dodge the hailstorm.
Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebrations
As part of our PSHE/Citizenship work at Southview, and to reinforce the importance of British Values, we had a whole school event to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.
In the morning each class looked at a different aspect of the last 90 years. These included music, schooling, the Queen’s life in pictures, the Royal Family tree and food (making jam tarts and red, white and blue cupcakes).
In the afternoon we all got together in the hall to hear what each class had found out and to look at the wonderful displays each class had created. This was followed by a celebration/party time which was enjoyed by everyone
Chairman of Braintree District Council, Councillor Lyn Walters kindly donated £1,529 to Southview’s School Fund this week.

We would like to thank Councillor Lyn Walters and all that were involved in raising these funds.
