Cute beyond belief!

Just take a look at this about cute factor!

Just days old....fluffy and cute!
Year R children have been watching their eggs closely this week... and seeing amazing new life come into the world! From eggs to chicks - we now have nine in school - all fluffy, delicate and very cute! 

Not only have the children loved watching them grow and develop, but staff have also enjoyed observing these little bundles of joy! (Lots of other children have also managed to find a reason to visit Miss Page can see why!)

Festival of Country Dancing

To further celebrate the 90th birthday of HRH Queen Elizabeth II, we held a special Festival of Country Dancing on Thursday 16th June 2016. Every class participated in the event, each performing their own special dance. We were very lucky with the weather and despite a few dark clouds, the rain held off and the school performed brilliantly!

In order of performance:
  • Year 4: Flying Scotsman
  • Year 2: She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain
  • Year 3: Lucky Seven
  • EYFS: Circassian Circle
  • Year 5: The Oxo Reel
  • Year 1: Princess Royal
  • Year 6: Maypole
The perfect weave! Well done, Year 6!
Each class participated with their own dance.
The finale to the event was a whole school performance of Pat-a-Cake Polka...a great way to end the birthday festivities.

Thank you to all children for performing, to staff for supporting, modelling, demonstrating and organising and to all those parents who were able to attend.

Downsview 'street party' in honour of HRH Queen's 90th birthday!

On Friday 10th June, we held a celebratory street party style lunch in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birthday.

The sun shone, the picnic came out and a good time was had by all! In the photo below, children and staff are enjoying their picnic...a big thank you must go to the kitchen team for producing a delicious feast and to our Year 5 and 6 children who worked as 'waiters/waitresses' for our younger children.

The celebrations will continue on Thursday 16th June when we hold a Festival of Country Dancing - another special event to mark The Queen's 90th milestone. Parents are welcome to attend the celebrations. The festival will begin in the main school playground at 9:15a.m.

Year 5/6 PGL Residential (June 2016)

Our Year 5 & 6 children had a tremendous three days at PGL recently, enjoying the thrills and challenges of activities including climbing, rifle shooting, abseiling, raft building, scaling Jacob's Ladder and trapeze jumping to name but a few!

In the photo below, the children have worked together to build a raft...and were doing a 'dry-run' before launching onto the lake.

The children returned to school full of stories - excited and eager to tell all...but very tired too!

Thank you to staff at PGL for their hard work and a special thanks to Mrs Morgan, Mr Harris, Mrs Farmer and Mr Rafter who led our residential trip and worked 24/7!

I hope that the memories will live for a very long time! A brilliant experience enjoyed by all!
