Year 5 visit St Mary’s Church and Prittlewell Priory

On Monday the 17th June, Year 5 went on an educational visit to St Mary’s Church and Prittlewell Priory. We were very fortunate with the weather as it was a sunny day so the children and adults were in good spirits. When we were working in the church with the on-site members of staff, it was noted how well-behaved and engaged the children were whilst learning about the history of the church. The children’s knowledge on both the local area and of the historical periods was both astounding and accurate. Whilst we were there the children participated in a quiz about the history of the church, they worked very sensibly in teams and used clues from the church to answer the questions. They were

The Music Man Project

On the morning of Tuesday 18th June we were really excited to welcome the team form The Music Man project to Porters Grange. The whole school was able to sqeeze into the North Hall to join in with the amazing musical activities. We learnt to sing and sign ‘Music is Magic’ and ‘Peace and Hope’ – some children were brave enough to sing a solo through the microphone. The last song was ‘High, Low, Middle’. We loved joining in with the dance moves. (Reggae, Gangnam style, Boogie Woogie, Flossing) but best of all was the Tango, where pupils and teachers paired up to dance together. A huge thank you to Mr Stanley and his pupils for giving up their time to come to our school. Every child and adult l

Reception Visit to Hyde Hall

Sea Otters and Sea Lions enjoyed a marvellous day out at RHS Hyde Hall Gardens in May. The children took part in lots of activities linked to nature and thoroughly enjoyed being outdoors exploring the gardens. Children went on minibeast hunts, planted seeds, discovered beautiful colours and flowers, made bird’s nests using natural objects, and made their own bookmarks using leaves and petals. We all had a brilliant day!

SEESMA Junior Music Festival Cliffs Pavilion

On Thursday 13th June the Porters Grange Choir took part in the Junior Music Festival. We travelled by train to the Cliffs Pavilion for the morning rehearsal and had a picnic lunch there before returning to school. The rehearsal went brilliantly and the anticipation was building. The children were excited to wear their new choir polo shirts for the evening performance. Everyone taking part sang their hearts out and were a credit to Porters Grange. Mr McClay, Mrs Clifton and Mrs Lander were all spotted dancing at their seats!

Year 2 visit Southchurch Hall

Year 2 went on an educational visit to Southchurch Hall on Friday 17th May and had a brilliant day. Whilst there, the children had a fantastic time drawing Southchurch Hall. The children were really interested in the hall as it looked very much like the houses from the time of the Great Fire of London in 1666 which the children had been learning about. We also spent some time doing observational drawings of plants, flowers and trees as our current science topic is plants. Once the children had finished there was time to have some much needed fun with their friends after an extremely busy half term.
