Year 4 Portals into the Past

The year 4 children were very lucky recently to have an exciting visitor come to their school. A man from a company called Portals into the Past came in for a super Roman Day. The children took part in a number of activities which helped support and develop their knowledge on Ancient Rome and Roman Britain. In the morning the children learnt all about the Roman way of life and how to be a good Roman citizen. Following this, the children then took part in a selection of Roman mathematics games and fact finding. Before lunch the children acted out Roman fighting styles and fighting formations. After lunch we learnt all about Boudicca and her effect on the Roman invasion of Britain. The childre

On Wednesday 19th October Seahorse class in year 2 attended the borough multi-sports event at Garons Leisure Centre.

All of the pupils really enjoyed the day and represented the school superbly - well done!

KS2 Cross country

A massive well done to all those pupils who participated in the KS2 Borough Cross Country competition on Friday 7 th October. This is a big event with over 1300 young people taking part. I was so pleased that we improved upon our performance from last year and that our pupils found the distance so much easier to cope with which means that their fitness has improved. Thank you also to Mr Adeyemi and Mrs Husdon who took the team- a great afternoon well done.

Year 5 & 6 Girls Football Tournament

The first Year 5 and 6 Girls Football Team at Porters Grange took part in a tournament on Wednesday 6th October and the aims that we set out to achieve were accomplished. All nine of the girls enjoyed the day, gained experience of friendly competition and had fun! The girls had not played competitively before or in fact altogether, but you would not have noticed as they all clicked showing great teamwork. They also displayed sports’woman’ship towards each other and the other schools that we came up against. Miss Gibson was in attendance to help with the team and she mentioned how much potential she saw; so much so that she is keen to arrange an after school club. The club would be for the gi

Year 5 Greenwich Visit

It was a really exciting morning when year 5 boarded the train bound for the Planetarium in Greenwich. Having planned their routes and timetables for the day in maths everyone knew they had to be on time. Once there, a short walk around the Cutty Sark found them starting the climb uphill to the entrance. Once in total darkness, the show took them on a tour of the universe stopping at different planets to explore the possibility of other lifeforms. The children had time to explore the activity centre and galleries that explained the universe and time itself. Some even stopped to take the tourist picture of themselves standing on the Meridian Line before we headed back for our train home.

Year 5 Road Safety

Today we were visited by the Southend Road Safety Team. We spent the morning learning about staying safe when crossing roads. We were taken on a walk around the outside of the school grounds, where we looked at the different roads and identified safe ways to cross. We identified other things as we walked that would help us to stay safe, even while walking on the pavements.
