  • Year 4 PGL Residential 2017

    Day 1 Four seasons in one day We started bright and early ready for our adventure to PGL. Parents waved us off gleefully as we bordered the coach (possible looking forward to some child-free time). The coach journey was pleasant and the children enjoyed moving through the familiar landmarks of London and out beyond to the less familiar countryside. Once we arrive we quickly saw our family of federation schools waiting for us. We soon realised that we were in for a wonderful time with our friends. After a hearty lunch, we split into our mixed federation groups. Children and adults dispersed across the site to begin the many exciting activities. We climbed, jumped, swung and abseiled like we were fearless. We cheerer on our friends and supported those who needed our support. Unfortunately the weather did not match our enthusiasm and spirit as we experienced sun, rain, hail and then back to sun again..truly four season in one day! Nevertheless and not to be defeated we continued on and showed our true determination to do what we had set out to do.... learn, have fun and make new friends.

  • Year 5 Residential Trip 2017

    Year 5 Residential Trip 2017 Day 1 What a fantastic start to our trip! The coach journey was excellent and it was a real adventure to be in a coach, on a train whilst under the sea! Our teachers were so well organised that we were able to take advantage of an earlier train which meant we could have more time in France. We arrived in Boulogne and were thrilled to be able to get off the coach and stretch our legs. Once off the coach, we went to an adventure playground to have our lunch and a play before attending The Nausica Sea Life Centre. The Sea Life Centre was absolutely amazing. We saw all sorts of wonderful creatures including sea horses, sharks, jelly fish and even a dancing seal that AJ named Jeff. Our adults were really impressed with us because the staff within the Sea life Centre were commenting on how well behaved we were and the kind manners we showed. After all of the excitement we were secretly happy to be heading towards our final destination. When the coach pulled up outside our accommodation, the bus erupted with a loud roar of "yay", "wow", "look at our mansion!". After dinner, we had a range of exciting evening activities. Our group did climbing. We enjoyed cheering each other on and challenging each other to reach past our highest climbing point. Written by Glenbrook and Fenstanton children in Group A. Day 2 On day two we went to visit Wellington Quarry in Arras. We went through the tunnel that the French, British and the Kiwis (aka the people from New Zealand) built. After we went to a famous battlefield and looked at the German and British trenches. We then went to The Vimy Ridge Memorial, learning about all the missing Canadian Soldiers. Later we went to a German cemetery and looked at the differences between the German soldier cemetery and the typical soldier cemetery. The difference is that the German soldiers cross had to be grey because of the guilt of starting the war and causing so much pain. Written by Oren & Niyah Y5 Hummingbird Class Day 3 We went to the picturesque city of Rouen, where we visited one of the many Notre Dame's in France. Notre Dame means ‘Our lady’. We visited the cathedral and looked and discussed it’s decorative appearance. We loved looking and learning about the stained glass windows and how they had to be carefully reconstructed after the city was bombed. In 1999 the cathedral’s spire fell and damaged the roof. Inside you could see where parts of the roof had to be replaced. In addition to the cathedral, we learned a lot about Joan of Arc. She believed that she received a message from God to lead the French to victory! Joan of Arc was involved in a famous part of history which is referred to as "The Hundred Years' War". At the young age of 19, Joan of Arc was burned at the stake by the English. Later, we had an opportunity to buy some souvenirs to remember the special city of Rouen.
