Hi, my name is Bethel and I’m going to tell you about the years 1 & 2 assemblies. On Tuesday 6th February, Michelle, Kate & I did an assembly about online safety. We started of by introducing ourselves to the young children. Then, we told them a story about three monsters ,Puff, Ness and Fizz, who had a problem that they needed to solve. In the story, Puff, Ness and Fizz had a class competition
that they entered. Their entry was put onto their schools website; there was a mean comment by someone with the username Grim_100. We then proceeded to ask the year 1&2 children about what happened.
Overall, we had a really fun day and we hope to do it again
Years 3-6 competed in an athletics competition against all the schools in Havering. Years 3&4 competed on 30th and years 5&6 on the 29th. Both groups placed 2nd against 30+ schools which is a big achievement.
Digital leaders and students made a short news round video about the event, hope you enjoy it!

On Monday the 13th of November 2017, year 6 went to a Gurdwara in Ilford to learn about the Sikh religion.
We got to school and sorted ourselves out for the day and we set of at 9:15.
We are lucky enough to have a Sikh classmate that was able to give us some extra information about their religion.
First, we got the 86 bus to Ilford, when we arrived, we had to put our head scarfs on outside the Gurdwara as we were not allowed in the Gurdwara with our heads showing and then we had to take our shoes off. Next, the guide took us into a room where he then informed us about the Sikh religion and what it’s like to be a Sikh.
He told us lots of information about Sikhism; over 100,000 people go to the Golden Temple every day in Punjab- India, to eat holy food and that even if you are not Sikh, you can still go to the Golden Temple to eat and pray.
After we went downstairs into the dining area, we were given chips and beans in a metal tray, once we got our food, we went and sat down on the floor, were also given water or juice. Some of us had packed lunches but not containing meat to show respect to their beliefs.
We really enjoyed our trip to the Gurdwara- it’s a trip we will never forget as we learned about other peoples beliefs in our world! We hope to learn more about the Sikh religion!

PGL is very joyful place where you will go with your rest of your year group.At PGL we did a activity called Zipwire.For zipwire we had to climb a tree.We had to wear a harness for safety.Before we climbed we had to squeeze the three Caribinas.Then we started climbing.You start of by climbing a ladder.Then you step and start crawling metal pins.Then you reach to the top and jump to reach a bar.
At PGL we did a activity called the trapeze,which was really scary,where we had to climb to the top of a pole and then stand on a platform.Which made the pole shake because I was really scared and I started shaking.And you had a choice to either sit down or stand up at first I sat down because I was really scared but we had enough time for a second go which I was encouraged to stand up on platform which I did and because of that leader.
I would like to thank PGL for my amazing experience.

PGL is an amazing time for year 6! My favourite thing about it was the survival course because i like things like that. We got to put up tents and make pegs by carving wood/sticks. The weather at PGL was amazingly good.We all climbed trees at play and lunchtime and that was really fun and addicting. The food there was great and extremely tasty☕️! The songs are so funny and exiting. The instructors were really kind and fun. My favourite instructor was a really funny man called Eric.
The giant swing
This event was very terrific as you were pulled by your teammates in the with a harness. A harness is a gear that helps you stay up if you fall.
After your pulled to a certain place,you pull a string and go flying in the air. It is like a swing but giant. At the end you’re left dangling above ground. The harnest gives you a wedgie.
The food was amazing especially the brownies and the chips .
Everyone has now completed their final 2 activities and we are currently waiting for lunch. The children are sad to be leaving but are also looking forward to going home. They’re looking forward to spending time with their families and obviously, many of them cannot wait to be reunited with with their phones, hairdryers and computer consoles!
We will see you back at St Edward’s in a few hours
From everyone at PGL
We’re sorry that we haven’t been able to update you sooner but we have had some technical difficulties.
The journey here was lovely and the children were wonderfully behaved. By bedtime, some children had already conquered their fears! Some of the activities we have experienced so far are: fencing, raft building and lots of activities that involved children reaching new heights-literally. We are really amazed by how brave some children are being and we’re very proud of them. We have also discovered that some of the boys have a fear of moths.
The children are coping with the early starts and we think this is because they’re looking forward to breakfast. As expected, the children are loving the food. I’ve had children asking me how long until lunch (at 9.30 am). There is always a countdown to meal times!
Overall, the children are developing their listening skills, teamwork skills and most importantly, they are enjoying themselves. We’re half way through the trip now and are looking forward to the next few days.
We will try our best to update you tomorrow.
From us all here at PGL.
P.S. The weather has been very kind to us
Year 6 have now completed all their SATS tests. They have all worked very hard throughout the year. Well done year 6 – we are very proud of you!
