KS1 Football Tournament

Another great sporting day out for Porters Grange students; this time eight pupils from years 1 and 2 took part in the borough football tournament. They all had a fantastic time representing the school and got to play lots of games against all different schools. They all said how much they enjoyed the event and wanted to play again soon. Well done to all those who took part and thanks to Miss Johnstone for her help.

Children In Need

Children in Need Day was a “Spotacular” success at Porters Grange Primary School. Leading up to the day the children and staff worked hard making, baking and decorating tasty treats for our Bake Sale. Hundreds of parents eagerly snapped up the results and within 20 minutes every treat had been sold! In addition children were able to take part in some “Spotacular” painting. Over the course of the day spots were seen to be appearing on a playground wall! Turquoise, pink, purple, yellow and green all painted by the children in return for a donation to this great cause. Fortunately none of the paint made it onto their pyjamas as in honour of Pudsey, staff and children came to school in their

Bhangra Dancing

We had a fantastic opportunity to participate in Bhangra dancing and drumming workshops as part of our Equality and Diversity Champions Programme. Year 2, 3 and 4 had lots of fun playing the drums and copying the dance moves. Lily from Orca class said, “ I liked the dancing and pretending to change the light bulb!” Alisha said, “I liked it because I exercised and relaxed a lot. I am going to make a scrap book about it.”

Victim Support Assembly

On Monday 14th November years 5 and 6 were visited by Victims Support. As part of our equality and diversity work the children were given information about what constitutes hate crime and how to report it. We learnt about the feelings that hateful behaviour can engender and that it is all of our responsibility to stand up to those who are being prejudiced against others by reporting them to the police. We learnt that to paraphrase John F. Kennedy: The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men, women or children do nothing.

New School Library Opening

Yesterday saw the grand opening of the fantastic new library here at Porters Grange Primary School & Nursery. The school was delighted to welcome children’s authors Nick Butterworth and Rob Biddulph to cut the ribbon together with members of the School Council. The authors stayed in school to run a number of fun and interactive workshops with the children. Later in the day Nick Butterworth held a book signing for parents, children and staff. The new library represents two years’ work from a passing comment that it would be lovely to transform 2 underused and dilapidated classrooms into a new, large library. This is a fabulous, bespoke space with large wall murals and furniture echoing a w

Houses of Parliament

Year 6 enjoyed a visit to the Houses of Parliament, which is also known as the Palace of Westminster. On the way to the Houses of Parliament, we passed by the London Eye, Big Ben and also a nearby park where we stopped for lunch. At 12:00 we finished our lunch and headed off to the Houses of Parliament. We began our tour in the garden which was full of beautiful flowers. As we entered the building, there was a colossal hall: we couldn’t believe our eyes as we were overwhelmed by the thought of stepping in the same place as royalty often walked. There were beautiful paintings and portraits of all the royalty that lived in this magnificent place. It held over 1000 rooms. We were able to see ho

Tag Rugby

The Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby team took part in the borough competition on Thursday 3rd November. They have been training hard under the guidance of Mr Rasor who is an experienced player and coach. They played really well throughout the day, getting better with each game, and managed to win their last game. Well done to all those who took part.

Year 5 & 6 Boys Football Tournament

The Year 5 & 6 Boys Football team participated in a 7-a-side football tournament on Wednesday 2nd November at Alleyn Court School. They all did a fantastic job representing Porters Grange, showing great sportsmanship throughout and played with a smile on their faces. The hard work and training that they have been doing was evident in their play. Well done to all those that competed and we look forward to further fixtures.
