Summer Reading challenge

The library ladies from Croxley Green came to assembly to tell us about the summer reading challenge. The challenge is to read 6 books over the school holidays.  You get smelly stickers to add to your wallet to help solve the mystery of the animal agents. Children who complete the challenge will receive a wristband and get invited to a presentation ceremony where you will get a medal.

Have you got a library card? The library service is free to join and it allows you to use all the libraries across Hertfordshire.

Ali Baba Costumes!

Wednesday 28th June 2017

Dear Parents,

The KS2 performance is on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th July. We have been practicing very hard to make it a great show for you all to enjoy.

Our costumes are very simple this year.

Bottoms:

Your child needs to wear black trousers (preferably Harem pants available on Amazon for around £4, search “children’s Harem pants” or click here), jogging bottoms or leggings but these must be plain and without logo please.

Tops:

Your child needs to wear a brightly coloured t-shirt, again plain and without logo. If they do not have one already at home, they can wear their school PE t-shirt (the HRS logo is fine).

Feet:

Your child needs to wear sandals or flip-flops, any colour is acceptable.

Costumes need to be in school by Friday 7th July ready for our dress rehearsal the following Monday. Costumes can be sent into school and kept safe here at any point between now and the 7th July.

If you have any questions then please do come and ask or write a note in your child’s diary. Thank you for your help and support.

Mrs Barcroft

Just returned but thought you might like these last pictures, happy memories of their last morning…

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

Gorgeous sunshine on our last morning at PGL… 

Today we have been as active as ever: vertical challenge, the giant swing and team sports… 

                                                                                                                                           

We’ve had an amazing day abseiling, canoeing, raft-building and climbing Jacobs ladder. 

Here are some more pictures showing how everyone learnt so many new skills and pushed themselves to the limit…  

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Day two and we’ve been incredibly brave, strong and resourceful. Even the shone shone down on us while we were having fun in our groups…

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

We’re all having an amazing first day at PGL, Swindon. Some of us were being being thrilled on the giant swing, racing on the  finely tuned quad bikes, conquering the vertical challenge and canoeing (some capsizing) on the lake…  all in the rain… lovely…

Here are some pictures showing some of these activities… 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

First day fun!

Despite the delightful weather…..

We  had great fun reaching the top of the Vertical Challenge and looking at the amazing views over the trees.

Canoeing on the lake was next with only one escapee into the water!! 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

The tennis season is with us in Year 5…

The children played singles and doubles on the playground and their tennis greatly improved…
