Galley Hill crew pumpkin day

Those of us not at pgl spent today amongst lots of pumpkins. We started with painting ceramic pumpkin tea light holders.

After break, we each cut open and carved our own real pumpkin. We took both our ceramic pumpkins and our real pumpkins home with us.

We did some baking in the afternoon as we made pumpkin pie. It was still warm when we left so we will be tasting it tomorrow during our movie day.

This will be the last blog from us. We’ve really missed all our friends at pgl but we’ve still had a really fun week to remember back at school. 

Galley Hill crew at Phasel’s Wood

Those of us who aren’t at PGL went on our own mini adventure today to Phasel’s Wood. 

We started the day with Cresta Run which is a bit like sledding but on wheels. The children absolutely loved this activity. Joe and Alice were getting up some great speed! Grace was also a great helper and saved the adults from lots of pushing. 

Next we went to abseiling. Jacob picked it up straight away and Jenna was a pro. Ariba looked fab in her leopard print dress (Miss Duggan you would have been so proud of her outfit!!) Special mention also must go to Leyla who came back down the stairs on her first try but then went up again, faced her fears and abseiled twice! She even said she loved abseiling after that!!!

After lunch, we played a game of aeroball. We got into pairs and held a tournament. Well done to the overall winners Joe and Finley. 

Finally we ended the day with archery. Grace was an expert at this as she knew exactly where the equipment goes and what to do. Lots of us hit the target and Finley even hit the bullseye!!! 

We have lots of photos to post but as Mrs Huscroft had to go to staff meeting after school they will come tomorrow. 

Team building day at Galley Hill

Edit: Hi guys, just to say this post is from the children who stayed back at school. Any from me (Mrs Huscroft) will be from the children at school. I’m sure the PGL group will blog later this evening. I won’t approve the comments people had written on this post so feel free to write again when they blog. Sorry if it was confusing, we’ll try to make it clearer tomorrow.

At the start of the day, we got into partners. One person was blindfolded and the other person was leading them. We went blindfolded round the play trail. 

After assembly and break time we made parachutes so we could drop an egg from upstairs and they wouldn't break. But mrs huscroft managed to crack both the eggs before we even started so we had to borrow some more from the kitchen. When we finally dropped them from the window, they both landed safely in the bush. But when we dropped them on the playground they were scrambled!!! What a waste of scrambled eggs!

After lunch we did some more team building with games and we had to work as a group to complete tasks. We also made funny pictures and stories by playing consequences as a whole big group  

Finally we played a game of daytime ambush. It is much harder to sneak up on people in the bright sunshine but we still had loads of fun and Alice and Brendan enjoyed hiding in a tree trunk. Grace loved her new camouflage fashions.



Hi parents,

Please remember all comments have to be moderated by an admin so if they don't appear straight away that is why. We will approve them as soon as we can and then they should appear under the blog post. The comments from the previous blog usually get read to the children the next evening before bed as long as they aren't too busy, so don't worry if yours isn't approved until the next day.

Art Day

The children who aren’t at PGL have a busy and fun week planned back at school. 

Today we had an art day. We spent the morning creating magical creatures by mixing and matching parts of real creatures. In the afternoon we did tile printing to produce repeated patterns. 

You can see some of our work on our class page on the website. 

We hope the PGL crew have settled in to their rooms and are enjoying a great first evening. We can’t wait to read their blog tomorrow.
