Black History Month

This Black History Month, we are commemorating the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Windrush. Year 6 read the poem ‘Windrush Child’ by John Agard and used it as inspiration to write their own.

Here is Mariam’s:

Pigeons wave me goodbye

Clouds wave me goodbye

London waves me goodbye

As I sail away from home.

 

Has the world turned against me?

Has my life hated me all along?

Has my soul been unloyal to me?

As I sail away from home.

 

Tears pours from my weary eyes

Arms as tired as ever

Eye tired from crying

Heart bursting out of my chest

As I sail away from home.

 

Alone on this boat

Hated by everyone

The stormy sea crashing against the boat

My poor heart skipping every heartbeat

As I sail away from home.

 

A new chapter turns

Like a book skipping pages

Every page is different with its own words

Life is different with everyone around me as I am on land.

 

Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby

Yesterday, some children in Year 5 and Year 6 took part in the Westminster Tag Rugby tournament in Regent’s Park. They had skills training and then played 3 matches against other Westminster schools. They didn’t emerge victorious this time but they scored some points and made lots of tags! It was a great day and we are very proud of the children’s determination, sporting attitudes and enthusiasm.

PGL – Day Two

The children all had a good night’s sleep and are ready for today’s activities. This morning, they are doing some problem solving and attempting the trapeze, and this afternoon they will be completing the Challenge Course (mud galore!) and having a go on the zip wire. We will post more pictures later on!
