Miss Granite went down to visit Year 6 yesterday afternoon – they are having a fantastic time and wish they could stay for longer! They had a go on the zip wire and the Challenge Course. Apologies in advance for the washing!
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!
Year 6 arrived safely at PGL and have spent the afternoon playing aeroball and climbing Jacob’s Ladder. They are having a fantastic time!
On Thursday 28th June, F1 and F2 went to Odds Farm in Buckinghamshire. They had a wonderful time stroking different animals and going on tractor rides!
This week’s newsletter contains dates for the rest of the term and work from last week’s Art Day: June 29th 2018
This week’s Dojo winners had a choice of an ice-cream or hot chocolate because of the hot weather!
Yesterday, Year 2 went to Regent’s Park for a multi-skills day, where they tried out different sports. It was a lovely day for it!
On Monday 18 June, Year 2 went on a trip to the Lookout Centre, in Hyde Park. They went to learn more about how animals change as they grow, and to understand that animals produce offspring that grow into adults as part of their Science topic. In English they have been learning about explanation texts and in particular life cycle stages of a butterfly. The children behaved fantastically and enjoyed finding mini-beasts outdoors as well as pond dipping.
This week, Year 1 and 2 were invited to attend a unique performance of Sergei Prokofiev’s symphonic fairy tale of ‘Peter and the Wolf’ directed by Sue Perkins and Anna Richardson, at the Hinde St Methodist Church in Marylebone. They participated in a discussion with Sue on what their favourite instrument was from the orchestra, then sat and listened as Anna told the story while Sue conducted the orchestra. Afterwards, they were given an opportunity to try out some of the instruments that were used in the performance. All of the children were super ambassadors for the school, and loved the experience of seeing story telling and music come together.
