Awesome Oceans (September/October 2019)

Year 6 have now plunged into their new topic - awesome oceans. So far we have been learning about the 5 oceans of the world, writing non-chronological reports and researching which living organisms call the world's largest biome home. 

Year 6 Speaking Competition (September 2019)

Today Year 6 presented their speeches which they had been researching, planning and rehearsing all last week. We heard a variety of different topics including:

    sharks; plastic; pets; cats; ghosts; LGBT; animal testing; violent video games;            plastic; destruction of ancient monuments; unicorns; emojis; deforestation;                football; rabbits and rescue dogs.

Well done to all of the children who delivered their speeches in front of the class and congratulations to the three highest scoring speakers (Martha, Alice & Sali) who will go on to represent Kendall at the Colchester Youth Public Speaking Competition at Colchester Town Hall in May 2020.

PGL Diary 2019

Day 5 - Friday 13th September

Our last day at PGL has arrived. We've had a great time but are looking forward to going home and sharing all of our adventures. The last two activities today are riffle shooting and archery.

Day 4 - Thursday 12th September

What a beautiful day it's been at PGL. The sun has shone all day which has been perfect for problem solving, challenge course, abseiling and (our favourite evening activity) Passport to the World. It's now our last night at PGL. We're all a bit tired but can't wait for our last few activities tomorrow morning.

This morning started with a Happy Birthday to Oliver D who is celebrating his 11th birthday in style with us at PGL! Today’s activities included raft building and orienteering. 

Day 3 - Wednesday 11th September

This afternoon brought more fun and adventure with climbing, abseiling and sports night. We’re now half way through our PGL adventure and we’re having a great time. 

Despite the rain and windy weather this morning, the children have really enjoyed their activities so far, including Trapeze, Sensory Trail and the Challenge course. 


Day 2 - Tuesday 10th September 

Beach walk was excellent and the children have also enjoyed taking their turn on the giant swing. 


It’s not Jacob’s ladder - it’s Martha’s! Well done to all of the children who took part in this morning’s challenges but a special mention to Martha who was the one to reach the top of the ladder. UPDATE - It’s also Finley’s Ladder having made it to the top in the final group. 

We have a jam-packed day ahead of us today after a good sleep last night. Today’s activities include Jacob’s Ladder, Giant Swing and a coastal walk. But first, breakfast!

Day 1 - Monday 9th September 

We have arrived! After meeting our leader for the week, Natalie, the children have had a tour of the site and are now settling into their rooms. Dinner is at 7:55 and then we’re off to play Ambush this evening.
