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 .
On Wednesday we visited Wembley Stadium! When we arrived, we were given a talk about Wembley Stadium and we found out lots of exciting facts. After that, we were put into little groups and in those groups we were instructed to make a cake design, then they gave us some yummy lunch, we had fish and chips and it was really tasty! As we got closer to the end of this amazing trip, we got a tour around the whole of Wembley stadium and we even got to stand in their gigantic fridge freezer. In conclusion, we all enjoyed our day at Wembley Stadium.
Yr 6 will be goin to marchants hill in Surrey for Pgl.The journey will take about 2 and a half hours.One of the rides are called giant swing.That’s all I can say for now bye By:Tinufemi,Gerrard and Ike.
At St Edwards we did a bake sale to raise money for charity (Unicef).All the are being judged and the best will win a prize! After school it was so busy and now most of the are gone!

During science week we had a super fun time while doing….
On the first day of science week we had African animals come to visit us.We had a extremely exciting assembly when we got introduced to the animals.We had a white hedgehog,2 snakes,a lizard,a chameleon and a baby meerkat.This animals were all rescued!
As one of our experiments we got a pack of skittles and we had to make a pattern in a bowl.I chose the colours purple,red and yellow.Then our teacher added water to them and the colour of the skittles came off and changed the water. (The red took over the other colours)
While we were creating patterns a group at a time went outside to feel the slime made out of cornflower.We had to punch the slime but it wasn’t gloopy.Then we had to pick it up and then roll it into a ball .Guess What as soon as we let it go it melted!
We had an excellent assembly and we met Loraine and Louise.They told us that there was a priceless Ming vase that was smashed .Our job was to find out who did had done it.Our 3 suspects were Mrs Hall; Mrs Crosby; Miss Howard.We learnt about fingerprints and how it could help us to figure out who smashed the vase.It turned out that it was a mistake Mrs Hall sneezed and accidentally hit he vase.
We got into groups and made our own classification key (questions to find out what it was) it was very fun!Then we swapped them to see if we could classify the sweets.
We went to the art room and worked with reception children. There were lots of different investigations to try.

In year 4 we have been learning about science because it was science week. The first thing we learnt was how to blow up a balloon using:pop rocks,mint mentos ,fizzy water,medicine,coke and lemonade.Firstly we used a funnel to to put the pop rocks into the balloon,we took the balloon off of the funnel and put it on the top of the bottle.After we tipped the pop rocks into the fizzy water,so it blew up the . We did the same experiment with mint mentos and coke and medicine with lemonade.
On Monday 22nd of may we went into the music room to see some animals. Firstly we saw a lizard.It was green it’s leg were ticklish and the lizard was quite short as well.Next we saw the snake. It even went around some of our neks. It was slime as well as soft and he was he was cold blooded. After we saw a hedgehog. We were not allowed to touch it because of its spikes on its back.Next we saw the meerkat. It even bit some of our fingers,plus we got to stroke it. It was very soft.we saw a millipede,it has 2 hundred legs.we saw some beetles they were black and they had six legs. Then we saw a comemelion and it was standing still and it was green and yellow.
On Tuesday the 23 of May we did an experiment and we had a plastic we chose 5 to 6 skittles and we put them in a pattern then we put water in the bowl and waited. After a few minutes the skittles were white and the colours from the skittles went to the bottom of the bowl
On Monday 22nd May we were touching and holding animals from Africa.there was a baby meerkat which was really cute and fluffy it bit some of our fingers. There was also a chameleon which Victoria liked as well.Akosua and Konrad liked the meerkats most.
On Tuesday the 23rd may we did a few experiments.One is with skittles. You get a bowl,put the skittles in a pattern then add water and wait for five mins. When they were mixed together,Victoria had dark green,Konrad had red and Akosua had dark
On Wednesday 24th May we was pearing up with two reception children and we did different investigations in the art room. The first one Victoria and Jed did was extendible bunkers.Konrad, Hasani and Vinnie put a cup over the ear then pulling a string.Akosua and Sophie did masks where you had to mix the colours of the masks eyes and if you put all of them together they make dark purple and you can also see through them.
On Thursday 25th may we met two detectives who told us that there was an exebition and that someone had broken a priceless Ming vase. There were three suspects:Mrs Hall,Mrs Crosbie and Miss Howard. Victoria,Akosua and Konrad thought it was Mrs Hall. We did a workshop and found out it was Mrs Hall.mrs Hall broke it by accident and she didn’t take her hay fever tablets so she sneezed and the Ming vase broke.It was from eBay so it was cheap.
