Welcome to Autumn 1. Please keep an eye on this page as it will be updated regularly with photos and other information as the term progresses.
This half term our topic is 'Amazing Americas' and we have started to read our class novel, 'Trash'. This book is set in South America and details the lives of children forced to live and work on dumpsites. The book is hard-hitting and explores lots of issues, it helps that we have been able to invest in class sets of the novel so the children can follow the text as it is being read and they can read parts independently.
We are here safely and although it rained on the way here the sun is now out. We have settled in our rooms and have had a tour of the site. This evening we are playing a game in the dark called 'Ambush', we can't wait !!
PGL- Day 2
After a massive breakfast we played 'Aeroball', conquered the high ropes, shot a few arrows and tackled 'Jacob's Ladder.' The rain has stayed away today so we have spent any spare time playing games outside. This evening we are playing team games in the sports-hall.
We have had another action-packed day. We have managed to avoid most of the rain and have now really found our way around the site.
Today started like every other.....with a room inspection!
