We’re all up, suit cases packed and children all well fed. Off to do our final activities before we leave this afternoon.
Wow! What an amazing day 4! The children have been truly amazing in the activities they have done today, especially in the heat. They are now busy getting ready for dinner which will be followed by the disco. We will update the blog tonight with pictures. Watch this space…
As the children are currently enjoying a Harry Potter quiz run by Mr Cook, I thought I would take this opportunity to share some of the pictures taken today, during the different activities. As can be seen, day 2 has been great fun, filled with excitement and challenges.
Great first day at PGL. Children were amazing on the journey up and we stopped at a lovely park for lunch. Once settled in their rooms the children enjoyed playing games which was followed by a yummy dinner. Ending our first day with a sing song around the campfire.
Thank you to everyone that was able to attend our first session on Emotion Coaching. I saw nearly 30 members of the community and hope that this begins some of the ripples in the pond. There will be a follow up after half term to revisit these ideas – if you were unable to attend yesterday, please do try to make time for the second session. I attach the powerpoint I shared which will give you some indication of what was discussed and suggest ways in which you can securely acknowledge your child’s emotions, while ensuring behaviour is effectively dealt with.
A lively discussion, as always. We welcomed two new governors, Amanda Erasmus and Natalie Timonay, and look forward to their invaluable contributions.
Many matters were discussed including:
- How much everyone enjoyed the recent ‘Governor Day’. It was a great opportunity to talk with the children about their learning.
- The budget for next year was approved.
- Reflected on the strength of the school’s approach to staff CPD.
- Governors CPD included identifying our schools unique strengths and how these impact on learning.
