PGL 2015

On Friday 5th June the children from year 6 set off on the school's annual visit to the PGL site 'Little Canada', in the Isle of Wight. Over the four day visit the children faced fears, conquered tough challenges and survived in the outdoors. A packed activity timetable enabled the children to develop their team work skills as well as building their self-esteem and confidence. Here are a few highlights...

  

We all had a fantastic time and the children were outstanding!

Blackburn - March 2013
(School Link Project)

 The beginning...

On Thursday 14th March 2013, 31 children from Green class ventured on an exciting adventure to Blackburn.

The aim of the of the visit was to provide the children with an opportunity to meet the pupils in a Church of England school in Blackburn with whom they have been communicating since September. This is particularly relevant to their education in that all of the pupils in the Blackburn school follow the Muslim faith. We wanted to find out all about the similarities and differences between the two schools.

To allow the visit to go ahead, the children in Green class took part in a sponsored silence (for an hour) and raised over £900. This covered the cost of the transportation to and from Blackburn. Thank you to everyone that supported this event.

 

What happened?

During the two day visit the children explored and experienced so many different activities, particulary things they had never tried before: a visit to a traditional mosque, dressing up in cultural clothes, designing and carrying out henna, making nann bread and chapati's, watching a Bollywood film and writing Arabic calligraphy.

About St. Silas...

St. Silas CE Primary School is a two form entry school with 410 pupils, situated in the centre of Blackburn. The school has been open a year after 18 months of reconstruction. 7.5 million pounds was spent on the building to ensure that the space was utilised to its full potential. The ultra-modern school is home to a 3 storey playground that was a particular highlight for our children (multi-coloured humps, a slide as well as an undercover football pitch).
