Samba Concert!

Last week we were excited to perform in a concert with a full audience! A huge thank you to Mrs Courcoux who has shown such hard work and dedication for the last few months at Portway. We are sadly having to say goodbye to Mrs Courcoux at the end of term and we will miss her lots.

Sports Day Presentation 

Today the children took part in our annual school sports day. It’s always a great opportunity for the children to showcase the skills they have been learning throughout the year to their Adults. We were very lucky to have such great weather this year and the children put on a fantastic performance and should be very proud of themselves. Thank you to everyone who came out to us.


This year’s winners were:


Outstanding Performance- Yellow Team

Determination and Perseverance- Blue Team

Excellent Sportsmanship- Red Team


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. 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!

Sports Day 2023

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!

Visit from the RNLI!

Today the RNLI visited Year 2 to talk about water safety. We met a lady called Pat who taught us about how to be safe at the seaside and what to do if we need help. Some of us dressed up to role play different scenarios and we listened to a catchy song about keeping safe in the water. What a great time we had, thank you Pat!
