KS2 Borough Sports

A massive well done to the 54 pupils across Key Stage 2 who represented the school at the borough athletics this week. They were a credit to themselves, their families and the school; behaviour was fantastic and every single pupil tried their hardest. It's a tough event and we do not have the facilities in school to be able to practice as much as we would like. Nevertheless we had children win their events and seven pupils progressed to the next round of 'Super Sports'! Thank you to all the staff who helped out on the event too. Well done all.

SEESMA Junior Music Festival

On 12th June Porters Grange Choir performed at the Cliffs Pavilion, with other schools from the area. The theme this year was ‘Children are our Future’ – and songs included ‘We are the World’; ‘Count on Me’; ‘Tomorrow’s People’. Our children performed with enthusiasm and were a credit to the school. It was an amazing experience to be on stage singing in front of such a large audience.

School garden

Some parents from EYFS have kindly offered to clear and revamp our wildlife garden. We are extremely grateful for their help and each of the parents have fantastic skills and creativity to transform the garden. All of the staff and pupils are excited to see the end product. If you would like to join our parents in this venture then please let Miss Pell know!'

Hadleigh Roundhouse

On Thursday 7th June the Year 3 children went on an exciting trip to Hadleigh Roundhouse. We had lots of fun and took part in many exciting activities. We looked at an archaeological dig site and had lots of fun looking for hidden treasures and artefacts. We made clay pots using original tools and materials. Inside the roundhouse was fascinating, it was filled with wonderful artefacts. We all had a laugh when Mr Adeyemi was dressed up as Iron Age warrior. Later on, the children were able to join warrior school and learnt how to sling balls using animal skins. They also took part in sword handling and shield defence classes. We had an amazing, fun filled day.

Cricket Festival

On Tuesday 5th June, Porters Grange were invited to participate in a girl’s cricket festival to help with preparations for the upcoming Borough competition. The festival consisted of playing 4 non-competitive matches in order to understand the rules of the game and practise all of the different skills needed to play cricket. We started against a reasonably strong Alleyn Court “B” team. We batted first and posted a very respectable 242 (scores start at 200). The girls found bowling very difficult due to it being their first game and we eventually allowed Alleyn Court to score 254 which meant a defeat. The second game saw us fielding first against Chalkwell Hall. Our bowling got better in this
