Year 6 pupils enjoying the food at Kingswood.


Year 6 are busy today on the Kingswood residential visit.


The activities begin on the Kingswood Residential. Year 6 are having fun!


Year 6 pupils on residential this week arrive safely at Kingswood.


Royal Wedding celebrations started so well with the wonderful Royal lucheon provided by our chef David and the kitchen team!


Year 5 enter an immersion day to launch their new class novel, "King Kong". Pupils came in after lunch to a crime scene and had to become detectives to find questions that truly probed and challenged.


Year 6 are coming in at 8.00 am each morning for their healthy SATs breakfast. Good luck for the week ahead!


We are all very excited about the Royal Wedding Party being held 4pm to 7pm on the Main Playground next Friday. Tickets available from the PTA or on the door. Children and teenagers welcome when accompanied by a parent. Food, music and festivities freely available.

With Mr Thomas and really enjoying seeing the level of reasoning evident in maths for some of our older pupils.


Nice to see some really great learning indoors and outdoors in Nursery today. The traditional tales topic has really caught everyone's imagination. Children role playing, building fairy castles and making their own beanstalks!


Amazing dance moves at the PTA disco for the younger pupils.... 🕺🏼🕺🏼🕺🏼


Our amazing netball team won the Thurrock netball rally for the first time in our history. The team beat East Tilbury in the final and Abbots Hall in the semi final.


Proud of our Year 5 and 6 Girl's football team. They are the second best team in the whole of Thurrock, beating Tudor Court 1-0, Graham James 2-1 on penalties before losing to Warren in the final. What an achievement!


Planning for priorities with our wonderful staff team as we plan to improve further in the Summer term.


The girls football B team. They had their first match yesterday against a very strong year 6 team from Stanford Le Hope. We lost the fixture but this doesn’t reflect on how well these girls did. Very little footballing experience but they played with such spirit,

Marking and Feedback

As part of our drive to improve standards in teaching and learning here at Harris Primary Academy Chafford Hundred, we have a robust system of marking and giving feedback to the children. Teachers are taking a great deal of time to mark all work in detail, to allow children to make accelerated progress and the children are given time to respond to the marking.

Children’s work in all subjects is marked in a variety of ways including the use of stickers, peer assessment, self-assessment and in depth handwritten comments. The marking is designed to both to motivate the pupils and to identify areas of development. All stickers used clearly relate to the learning objective and/or success criteria and in English and reading lessons to the target cards. Children’s successes are marked using green ink and areas for development are marked in red ink. Red pen questions (RPQ) are set for the children to answer the following day in order to extend their learning; “Think Deeper” stickers are designed to challenge the children’s learning and move them towards ‘mastery’ in Maths.

The children are really motivated to improve their learning and here is what some of them have said:

Funmilayo (Y6) – “The red pen questions help me with my learning as they suggest ideas to improve my work which I had never thought of.”

Luca (Y5) – “I think the green and red comments are clear and I like reading the green comments for what I did well.”
