Writing through the arts 


On Thursday 19th November Year 3 used drama and performance to help write a persuasive letter to Mrs Patient, with ideas of how they could improve the school. The children took it in turns to record their 'response' as if they were Mrs Patient. The children thoroughly enjoyed the activity and watching themselves back 'on the big screen!'.

More pictures are available in our 'Gallery' page.


Radion Project 


Shaun and Phillipa, local artists, are working to create a new public art sculpture on the side of the new cinema in Basildon Town Centre. They aim to involve different generations, age groups, and local schools within the project. This week, the week beginning 16th November, Noak Bridge Primary School have created leaf rubbings (frottage) to be included in the mural, every child has created a leaf image.

The art workshop activity included: 


  • an introduction to the new cinema and what a lenticular screen is.
  • Identifying why nature in the borough is important and what we can do to look after it and what role public art can play in this.
  • Working with lots of schools – idea of collaboration, working as a group.
  • The design of the mural so far and how your students leaf will be the key feature.
  • Art History – David Hockney vs Vincent Van Gogh
  • What is frottage and how to do it – Demo.
  • Identifying leaves with leaf identification card.

World Diabetes Day 14th November 2020


At our school we have children who have Type 1 Diabetes and to support World Diabetes Day we will be discussing diabetes within our assemblies this week.

We think you are very brave Fern - thank you!

It’s that time of year again where it’s getting darker earlier, with darker mornings and the clocks going back soon.


We are sending the links below which contain useful Road Safety resources reminding pupils why it is important that everyone dresses brightly when out and about.

Josh Year 4 made an excellent model of an Iron Age settlement, great work!!

The Children's Mental Health Awareness Day was a great success! (see all photographs within the gallery of the 'children's' section)

Everyone made a real effort to wear an item of yellow, to think about and to talk about how we can stay mentally healthy.

Here are some strategies the children came up with: 


  • Release e.g. cry, squeeze pillow, stress ball
  • Get a enough sleep
  • Speak to someone you trust
  • Exercise
  • Smile
  • Be kind to each other
  • Have time alone
  • Write things down and then rip it up
  • Worry box at school
  • Keep occupied - reading, drawing, knitting
  • Get some fresh air - walking, looking at the sky
  • Spending time with people and our pets


For further support with mental health please look at the pages on our website within the 'Key Information' section.

Come together for #HelloYellow 2020!

On Friday 9th October 2020 we would like everyone to wear yellow to raise awareness and promote good mental health and well-being for children. Looking after our well-being has never been more important so children will discuss and complete activities to explore ways of supporting their mental health and well-being.

Also on the 15th September 2020, we received the fantastic news that we have achieved the 'Good Diabetes Care in School Award'!! This award shows that our school takes the care and inclusion of children with medical conditions such as diabetes seriously, and that we are delivering good practice care as recognised by Diabetes UK. A special thanks goes to Mrs Scanlon, our 'appointed person' and Mrs Barrett for their hard work to improve our practice and complete the application. We would also like to thank our parents for the nomination and who supported our application.

15th September 2020 We received the amazing news that we became a 'Music Mark School'!! We were nominated by the Essex Music Hub to The UK Association for Music Education for our commitment to providing high-quality music education, they recognised the value that we place on music and our dedication to offering and delivering a broad and balanced curriculum. We are so pleased and would like to thank Miss Fisher (Music Lead) in particular for her hard work to further improve our music provision.

For the week beginning 7th September 2020, Reisha in year 5 attended a trial at the Essex FA's Regional Talent Centre. After performing well she was offered a place, for this season, in the U11's elite programme. This is the highest level a girl can play at, at this age, which is a fantastic accomplishment - well done Reisha! Let's support our potential Lioness!

On Friday 11th September 2020 Year 2 discussed the 'Zones of Regulation' and the feelings we may experience in each 'zone'. Being able to identify and name feelings is the start of emotional self-understanding and emotional self-regulation.

September 10th 2020 - Joshua in year 4 has been involved in fund raising for St Luke's Hospice. He took part in a 26 mile marathon and raised £1016.
