Well after much excitement last week of counting the number of sleeps till PGL the day has finally arrived! Our intrepid explorers set off this morning heading for the Surrey hills, stopping on the way at the Devil’s punchbowl for some lunch.
No sooner had we set out when we suffered a Shakespearean tragedy.
Don’t panic parents – we were just kidding
Time for some post lunch sightseeing at the Punchbowl.
As soon as we arrived at PGL we were met by our group leader, Ross, who lead the excited group to our rooms, then out for a tour of the grounds.
Echo point, echo point, echo point. Well you get the picture.
And that Pedro is how you levitate – simple really!
Following a delicious dinner we were ready for action and headed out into the dark for a game of ‘Ambush’. For those not in the know, this is ‘extreme’ hide and seek. But if you don’t like hiding in bushes in the pitch dark then it is probably not the game for you!
Yes camouflage is the very in colour this season.
Halloween has come very early this year.
Some rather scary, and dirty children we found in the woods.
Not tired enough? Ok time for some late night aerobics.
So now we are all showered and heading for bed and looking forward to see what our first full day has in store for us.
World Book Day is a worldwide celebration of books and reading.
Here at Sir John Lillie we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as a character from our favourite book. We had a variety of characters from all different books.
Take a look at some of the amazing costumes below
We recently took some children to Somerset House for some ice skating!
For some children it was a new experience which they thoroughly enjoyed even though some of them ended up on their bottoms!
A member of the public also commented on how polite and well-mannered the children were on the tube.
We are very proud of Nursery and Reception for their wonderful performances at the show.
Year 6 went on a trip to Trafalgar Square to commemorate those who lost their lives in WWI. At eleven o’clock we started the two minutes silence. This gave us an opportunity to empathise with those who sacrificed their lives for us.
The children put their best outfits on and their best dance moves too, even the adults couldn’t resist a little shake and twist!
Take a look at some of the great costumes and dance moves at the disco last night.
CLT joined Sue and Chloe for afternoon tea. It was an opportunity to congratulate them on their new important roles and to hear about their first meeting last week.
Ky’reese, the Chairperson, had delegated tasks to his team members and they were finding time in their busy days to carry them out.
These tasks included speaking to the Head Chef to determine menus and dates for the next special lunches.
