The Community Games was made up of 17 primary schools around Essex, split into 3 groups. Porters were put into Group 3 alongside, Great Wakering, Canvey Juniors, Westborough, Westerings and Jotmans Hall. The games started well for us with a 2-0 victory over a strong Westborough side, with Kewin Kwiek getting both the goals. The next match saw a 0-0 draw with future semi-finalists Great Wakering. This was a great result for Mr Deadman as Great

Reception Visit to Hyde Hall

All of the Reception children went to Hyde Hall today by coach. The sun was shining and the children were excited to start their first ever trip at Porters Grange. The staff at Hyde Hall were all friendly and welcomed us upon arrival. The day started with a talk about birds and the different noises birds make. Everyone had to close their eyes and listen to the different sounds. The children then had to investigate beans and find the root of their bean. The children were soon invited to explore different tables of activities. One was a sensory table where children could rub plants and smell their fingers and another table had flowers and plants for the children to use to make their own pain
