Sports Day!

What fantastic weather we had for our school sports day this year! It was great to see all of the parents and grown ups there to cheer on the children and the children were so excited to see you all too! We started our morning with the obstacle course which involved wearing a penguin inflatable trying to avoid the orcas! Next it was an old favourite; the sack race followed by the egg and spoon race. Finally the excitement rose once again for the water relay and the sprint race. Needless to say everyone had a great time in the sunshine and we would like to say thank you again for helping us to make this such an amazing morning!

Owl Press Prints

This week we created our owl press prints. We had to work through a range of steps to create our art work. First we designed our owl on a whiteboard making sure it was a good size. Then we carefully copied it onto our polystyrene tile using a whiteboard pen. The tricky bit was tracing our design using a pencil making sure we didn't push too hard. Once our tile was ready we covered it with ink and pressed it onto the paper. What a great start to our new topic.



Jubilee Week at Portway!

What a great week we have had! We have been learning all about Queen Elizabeth and her incredible life. We took part in our very own Portway Highland Games where we competed in a tug of war, wellie wanging and shotput. Everyone really enjoyed baking biscuits and we decorated them with red, white and blue icing. At the end of our fun week, we embellished crowns ready to wear at our Portway Street Party where we ate lots of delicious food and danced with our friends. Have a look at the photos below to see how much fun we had!


Today we created our very own lighthouse with a winding mechanism to save Mr Grinling from carrying everything up the winding staircase. We are very proud of our creations! We followed our designs carefully, making sure we were as accurate as possible especially when it came to measuring the stripes. If there was a problem we persevered and adapted our designs. We hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we enjoyed making them.

Lighthouse Keeper Day

We enjoyed a special day today where we were able to dress up as characters from the Lighthouse Keeper stories. Our challenges were based around The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and The Lighthouse Keeper’s Picnic. To help Mr Grinling become healthier we made a lovely healthy wrap and designed a menu full of delicious food that wasn’t too full of sugar or fats. As the seagulls like stealing his lunch we constructed a seagull proof basket to carry his lunch in. Finally we set up a pulley system in the Forest School area to carry the basket from the little white cottage to the lighthouse. We had a great time!
