Goalball

A new sport introduced to the school and the students of Porters Grange. On the 17th November five Year 6 pupils, who had never previously represented the school, went to take part in the borough Goalball tournament. With only a little amount of knowledge of the sport and minimal practice we managed to win the first game comfortably. We then played straight after that match, which seemed to be to our advantage as we also won that game. Two games into the tournament with two wins and the confidence of the three boys and two girls was high, and rightly so. We then had two games off before playing the team that went to go on and win the tournament. Maybe the combination of the games off and pla

Library Birthday Celebration

Children and their parents shared in the celebration of the opening of our library on Thursday. Plenty of cake was consumed as children got to express their appreciation of our fantastic facility by writing leaves of thanks which are now on display. It was also a great opportunity to find out about all the up-and-coming events that are taking place in the library and to cosy up and share a book. So a big thank you to everyone who came.

Equality and Diversity award

Porters Grange students represented our school to receive awards in recognition of our hard work on the equality and diversity project over the past year. Three year six students presented an aspect of our project to a large group of people, including other schools, members of Southend education department and our local mayor. They presented work on the child friendly anti bullying policy and discussed how they had effectively delivered training to other pupils across the school. They also talked about our art work based on the books ‘It’s ok to be different’. Our pupils were excellent speakers and even did a mini role play too – we were so proud of them all. Alongside the equality and diver

Year 6 Visit to The Forum

Last Thursday, Year 6 were lucky enough to attend a workshop with M.G. Leonard the author of Beetle Boy and Queen of the Beetles. M.G. Leonard talked enthusiastically about how she came up with the idea for the books and why she chooses to write about beetles! We learnt about where she took her inspiration from and a lot about beetles. Did you know that Rhino Beetles enjoy eating bananas? Year 6 left the workshop feeling inspired and motivated to enjoy the process of writing and to write imaginatively!

Autumn Crafts

A fantastic time was had by all who came, (and there were lots of you!) to our Autumn craft event. After listening to a story about a squirrel found in a bag of peanuts, an array of poppies, hedgehogs and leaves were made and decorated. Each child who came received a free book, bookmark and drink and of course they got to take home all their creations too. All said they were looking forward to the next one which is on 7th December. Hope to see you then.
