Be a litter Superhero!

Wednesday 15th March
Mandy, an environmental officer from Hampshire County Council, visited us today in assembly to talk about keeping our environment clean and litter free. She taught us how to be litter superheroes!

Mandy transformed into a ‘Learner Litter Picker’ and we had to help her look at her ‘set’ and decide what we should do with certain items that had been thrown away. We talked about the impact on different animals in the Forest and how it effects the earth and trees around us!

We all decided we would always take our litter home after a day trip and we will encourage other people to do the same.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue visit year 5 and 6

Thursday 22nd September
Oakfield had a very ‘fiery’ visit from Hampshire Fire and Rescue today during which we learnt all about potential fire hazards and the implications of playing with fire.

We were allowed to explore the converted fire engine which was set up to represent a room with potential hazards. Charlie was really observant and noticed how important it was to not overload our sockets with lights, video games and mobile phones. We were so shocked to see how much damage a fire can do in a matter of seconds.

The team also showed us a video about children playing with matches in a field. What started as a ‘game’ quickly got out of control resulting in children being injured. We had a great discussion about peer pressure and making the right choices and realised that playing with fire was never a sensible thing to do.

Day 3 at Osmington

Another jam packed day today!

We’ve built rafts, climbed Jacob’s ladder, rode quad bikes, player some areoball and flung ourselves off of the giant swing. Mrs Smith came to visit us and Mrs Cunningham has settled in and is impressed at how settled the children are.

Year 5

Emmy and Oliwia helped each other greatly to reach a great height on Jacob’s ladder. Toby is still giving all activities his best effort and Chloe  has attacked everything with her usual grit and determination.

Tammy was amazing on the raft building and has expressed an interest in staying on as a permanent member of the PGL staff! Emily didn’t know whether to laugh or cry after her raft sunk. Brendan and Megan are conquering their fears despite some initial apprehension on some tasks. Room inspections for Year 5 didn’t go particularly well today, some strange smells are arising! Compulsory showers before bed tonight after the raft building!

Year 6

Dylan is faced his fear and flung himself off the giant swing whilst Olivia, Maisie and Zac continue to approach each activity with confidence. Ewan is loving the activities and has particularly enjoyed the quad biking.

Bethany and Paige made a great attempt at Jacob’s ladder and worked really well as a team to reach the top.  Millie kept Mrs Hinton calm on the rope swing and Jessica was last girl floating on the raft building.

It was Disco night tonight and we certainly don’t let ourselves down when it came to our dance moves! Children have packed up ready to leave after lunch tomorrow, dirty and wet clothes bagged up, and we are all looking forward to our final activities in the morning!

We’ll see you tomorrow!

Day 1 at Osmington

And they’re finally in bed! Not necessarily asleep but in bed no less! We’ve spent the afternoon getting into our groups and getting ourselves orientated. Our group leader is called Lauren and she’s doing a fantastic job at making us feel welcome. We enjoyed a first night dinner of sausages or chicken curry and all children ate well.

Brendan’s birthday went down a storm, thanks for the cake mum!

We have a busy day of rifle shooting, outdoor climbing, tunnel trails and zip wire. We’ll let you know how we get on!

Up and Away

Genie: Welcome aboard Genie Airways! We’ll be cruising at an

altitude of several feet and arriving in Baghdad at the end of

this song! So fasten your seatbelts, hold on to your fez and

off… we… go!

 

All: Up, up and away!

We’re flying with the wind in our hair!

On a magical carpet!

Up, up and away!

We’re floating on a wing and a prayer!

On a magical carpet!

Sail over the desert land,

Across the deep blue sea!

As we go surfing the sky,

Higher and higher!

On a carpet with me!

 

Up, up and away!

We’re soaring out of sight, out of mind!

On a magical carpet!

Up, up and away!

No knowing what adventure we’ll find!

On a magical carpet!

We’re shining like shooting stars,

Defying gravity!

As we go into the night,

Flying by moonlight!

On a carpet with me!

 

Ali: Genie, this is amazing! Can you take us higher?

 

Genie: Oh, your wish is my command, Master!

 

Ali: Which way to the Palace, Princess?

 

Princess: Second dune to the right, then straight on ‘til morning!

 

All: Up, up and away!

We’re flying with the wind in our hair!

On a magical carpet!

Up, up and away!

We’re floating on a wing and a prayer!

On a magical carpet!

Sail over the desert land,

Across the deep blue sea!

As we go surfing the sky,

Higher and higher!

On a carpet with me
