PGL Day 2

The children’s chalets and the teachers’ cabin.

The weather is much better today and we have enjoyed quad biking, Jacob’s ladder, the climbing wall and orienteering. More photos will follow later.

PGL Day 1

What a wet start we’ve had to our PGL adventure!

The children (and adults!) are all very tired and have settled down for the night.

We’re all hoping for brighter weather tomorrow!

First clarinet lesson

We met Mr Holly today and had a brilliant first session, learning how to assemble the clarinet and produce a sound! Don’t forget to practise at home and bring your clarinets in every Wednesday ready for our practise in class.

Bumblebees’ Quotes from our trip to Stonehenge

The moment I stepped on the coach, I knew I was in for a treat. Tuesday 26th March was going to be a great day! Leah A

On Tuesday we went to Stonehenge. When we got there, we looked at the beautiful rocks of Stonehenge. Dylan

It was like we were going back in time, it was fabulous! Josh

When we got to Stonehenge, we put our stuff away and got on the bus. Unfortunately, we left Mrs Morgan behind. Suddenly we had to stop and turn around! Leah LH

Through the windows of the bus, we caught our first sight of Stonehenge! Ellie

The stones looked tiny from a distance but when we got up close they were taller than the London clock tower! It was insane that people moved them! Zak

My group went to see the fantastic, huge stones first. I thought they were epic. Charlie

We actually got to hold a real bluestone and Sarsen stone. How cool is that! Bailey

While we were going round Stonehenge, our guide gave us a real Sarsen stone which was so pretty because it was like a sugary, white beach. Sophie

Afterwards, we went to the barrows and found out that DEAD PEOPLE were under us the whole time! We buried Isla. They believed that there was an after world so they put tools all around the body. Matthew

We built the broken Stonehenge you see today out of magnetic blocks. After that we built the unbroken Stonehenge but you can’t see that today! Charles

At Stonehenge we made rope and flour which was really exciting. We dressed up as Neolithic people and held real, sharp spears! Franklyn.

First they showed us the Bluestones and Sarsen stones, then they showed us an antler. We got closer to the great Trilithon and took some photos. Faysal

Inside the round house, I got to grind the grain into flour and hold an axe which was so cold it felt like a frozen ice cube! Dawson

The first thing the lady showed us was the stones and wooden brushes to make flour. Then she showed us the tools like axes and knives. Did you know, the axe is held together with pig skin? Interestingly, the beds were very uncomfortable which must have been hard for the Neolithic people. Isla

Coastguard Visit

Butterfly Class had a fantastic time on Wednesday with a visit from the Coastguard Search and Rescue team. The children learnt all about the important job they do in the community and from the smiles on their faces you can see how much they loved trying on the equipment!u
