Basket Ball

PJ from Russell Hoops has been coming in to teach us basketball.  We are working on looking where we are going whilst bouncing the ball.  To do this he brought in balloons so we could practice bouncing the ball and keeping the balloon in the air.  This was really challenging but we all tried our best.  By Isabelle B

I love basketball now because PJ is so funny.  By Matthew W

Using the balloons was fun and different.  I never knew a balloon could help with basketball.  By Honey H

It was loud with all the popping balloons but a lot of fun.  By Ollie D

World War 2

Our topic this term is World War 2. This week, we have been learning about the blitz and the devastation that the German air force brought not only to London but also to other cities across the country too. We re-created the terrifying scenes in our art class. Some of us chose to use paint and some of us used oil pastels to create our final pieces.

Athlete Visit

We loved having Givani Frankis come to visit our school to talk about being a champion athlete.

The fitness circuit was a lot of fun and we learned two very important lessons;

Never give up

Keep on trying

He really inspired us to maintain a fit and active lifestyle and not to give up on our dreams because things worth doing arent usually easy!

Classroom Display

This week we created our own display for our classroom. We had to work collaboratively and negotiate with each other. We all had our own ideas and we had to figure out how to incorporate our ideas in to one display board that we would be proud of.  Each group then took on a different section of the board.

We were pretty impressed with the end result and Miss Gamby said we could do all of the displays from now on!

Growth Mindset

We have been thinking about perseverance and growth mind-set so thought we would try something a little different. We tried to make origami diamonds.

It was pretty tough, some of us wanted to give up because it was just ‘too hard’. We didn’t give up though and we persevered.

We soon realised that if we kept trying, followed the instructions carefully, practiced those neat folds, and worked together that we could definitely make an origami diamond (even if it wasn’t perfect).

 And we did!

We created our own e-safety posters to remind each other what to do if something happens online that upsets us or makes us feel uncomfortable.

 Remember Save, Report, Block!

We have had a fantastic week at PGL. We had lots of exciting activities some of our favourites were; zipwire, trapeze, the climbing wall and survivour.


In science, we have been learning about light.  We figured out that light only travels at 300,000km per second in straight lines unless it is stopped by an object. This week we used mirrors to reflect light in different directions to try and get through a maze. In the classroom it was tricky because we had other light sources that were reflecting off of the mirrors. Luckily it was much darker in the school hall.

Welcome Back Year 6

We have had a busy start to the term with our new roles around the school we are finding that there are lots of jobs for us to do. We love caring for and playing with the younger children and were happy to help the new reception class settle in to their new school. All of us have been willing to help in any way we can and have had a fun and positive start to the year!
