Belfairs Woodland Centre visit

On Tuesday 28th June 2016 the year 6 children who didn’t go camping went on a trip to Belfairs woods. We were driven there by our very own Mrs Dyos-Smith. When we eventually arrived, we were greeted by a member staff and she told us our plan for the day. In the morning we built dens but first we had to get ourselves into groups and then put gloves on to protect us from getting splinters. As we had finished putting on our gloves we had to pick a space to locate our dens in. About half an hour into building our dens we started to think about how we would get water if we were stuck in the wild. Then in the afternoon we got to light fires. We also made trails for each other to follow in our grou

Frankie & Benny's visit

On Monday 27th June 2016, many year 6 children went on an educational visit to Frankie and Benny’s. This was a lovely trip where we made pizzas and learnt all the company’s history. It was a great experience because it taught us life skills that we may use later in life. We now know how to prepare a pizza. When we arrived, we were seated and told all about Frankie and Benny’s history, which we needed to remember for later. Then we washed our hands and started to put toppings on our pizza. Children and adults all had the choice of many different toppings. While our pizzas were baking in the oven we all got a drink to enjoy with our teachers. Once we had all eaten our pizzas we had a quiz all

Borough Sports

On Tuesday 21st June 56 pupils from years 3-6 took part in the Borough Sports Athletics competition at Garons athletics track. All the pupils that took part were fantastic and they all looked brilliant in our new athletics vests. Having talked to the pupils afterwards, they all said what a great morning they had and how much they enjoyed being a part of the school team. I was really proud of every single pupil for not only the way in which they competed and tried their hardest but also for the way they conducted themselves during competition and when supporting others. I would like to say a special congratulations to Grace Bower (Year 3), Riley Michaels (Year 6) and Lewan Jasmine (Year 4) wh

Year 6 Danbury Camping Residential

Our twenty-two year 6 campers have arrived safely at their camp site and home for the next three days. Due to the recent wet weather they have been upgraded from tents to wooden cabins – how fancy! I’m sure the children will have lots of fun. Hopefully the staff will get some sleep!

Southend Music Festival

On 14th June, thirty members of the Porters Grange choir took part in a mass performance with choirs and orchestras from other local schools at the Cliffs Pavilion. This year's theme was 'Songs from the Movies', including 'On My Way', 'Summer Holiday', 'Mr Blue Skye' and 'I'm a Believer'. Highlights of the performance were the actions to 'Flash Bang Wallop' and watching the audience attempt the handclaps to 'Eidelweiss'. A tremendous well done to the choir for learning the words and actions to all the songs and performing them with such enjoyment and enthusiasm - you were a real credit to Porters Grange!

Happy Birthday to our Queen

On Friday 10th June children and staff celebrated the Queen’s official 90th birthday by joining together on the playground for rousing renditions of God Save the Queen and Happy Birthday. Mr McClay addressed the whole school, talking about the importance of the occasion. The school’s flagpole was in action with Miss Henley raising the Union Jack aloft during the national anthem. After the beautiful singing and vigorous flag waving, everyone sat down in the sunshine to enjoy cakes and juice. The cakes had been decorated by the children that morning and looking fantastic. It was a super way to mark a highly significant moment in the life of this country’s longest serving monarch. Happy birthda
