The zip wire seems to be one of the highlights so far! After our final yummy dinner here at PGL the evening activity was a quiz/team challenges.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The children then started to pack up their rooms before lights out. They have been brilliant at night and everyone got another good night&#39;s sleep. This morning we enjoyed our final breakfast, finished packing up the rooms and got going with final activities. 4 groups have their raft building session this morning as well as crate challenge. We are aiming to leave at 1.30pm and estimate we&#39;ll be back around normal school finishing time. We will send an update later if anything changes.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/images/news/Climbing_Walls.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 151px;" />&nbsp;&nbsp;<img alt="" src="/images/news/Assault_course.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 169px;" />&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This morning is dry and there&#39;s even been some sunshine.

It was a windy day, and a record number of &nbsp;children from local schools attended: 84 girls and 125 boys.<br /> <br /> The first race was the girls race , which was slightly longer than the boys&#39; due to a recall of all the girls half way round their first lap! Despite this, Z&nbsp;Wilkins, G&nbsp;Middleton and J Hayes put in an excellent &nbsp;effort in the girls race, and came 38th, 19th and 40th respectively. Well done girls.<br /> <br /> Nine boys ran for St Michael&#39;s in the boys&#39; race. It was a tight race, with barely anything between the boys positioning. Well done to all the St Michael&#39;s boys who took part against some very stiff competition:&nbsp;P&nbsp;Awe, G Curley, J&nbsp;Curtin, D&nbsp;Graham, H&nbsp;Watts, H&nbsp;Webb, M&nbsp;Ujam , D&nbsp;Mularski, and L&nbsp;Hamilton. P Awe and J Curtin&nbsp;did particularly well, positioned 24 and 34 respectively.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">It was a great atmosphere at the event and lovely to have so many enthusiastic parents supporting. The running club will continue through November as we prepare for our next Fun Run in January.</p> http://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/images/news/Running_Club.jpgWed, 18 Oct 2017 09:58:24 GMTYr.6 - PGL Wednesdayhttp://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-10-18-yr-6-pgl-wednesdayhttp://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-10-18-yr-6-pgl-wednesday<h2><span style="color:#800000;">PGL - Wednesday</span></h2> <p style="text-align: justify;">Tuesday afternoon groups 1-4 did the Trapeze. Lots of flying fun! After a rest and a hot meal the evening activity was PGL Sports Night. The first full day of activities certainly tired the children out so we had a bit of an earlier night and some rooms even turned their own lights out! This morning&#39;s breakfast of sausages, tomatoes and hash browns was a popular choice and has set the children up for another busy (and possibly rather wet) day. This morning is Vertical Challenge and Tunnel Trail.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/images/news/Trapeze(1).jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 356px;" /></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This morning&#39;s Vertical Challenge and Tunnel Trail went very well. A few teachers even gave the tunnels a try with the help of their group. It was a rather damp morning so we&#39;re pleased the rest of the day is looking dry. Fish fingers and chips was a popular lunch choice today and helped everyone to warm up. After lunch we visited the shop to buy souvenirs and sweets. This afternoon we have archery and climbing.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/images/news/Tunnel.jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 267px;" />&nbsp;<img alt="" src="/images/news/Cones.jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 267px;" />&nbsp;<img alt="" src="/images/news/Door.jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 267px;" />&nbsp;<img alt="" src="/images/news/Tower.jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 267px;" /></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Archery and Climbing went well on Wednesday afternoon. Lots of children scaled the wall to ring the bell at the top of the climbing tower. Meatball pasta and lasagne were a favourite dinner choice, followed by Angel Delight which had a mixed reaction. The evening activity was &#39;Splash&#39;, which to the children&#39;s relief did not involve them getting wet. They completed team tasks (including the highest shoe tower) to earn points. They then exchanged their points for materials to protect a water balloon. Their creations were then dropped from the second floor to see if their balloon survived; we were very impressed that some did! The children were really good again at bedtime and fell asleep quickly after another full day of activities.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/images/news/Archery.jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 267px;" />&nbsp;<img alt="" src="/images/news/Shoes(1).jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 356px;" /></p> http://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/Ladder.jpgWed, 18 Oct 2017 09:47:46 GMTYr.6 - PGL Tuesdayhttp://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-10-17-yr-6-pgl-tuesdayhttp://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-10-17-yr-6-pgl-tuesday<h3><strong><span style="color:#800000;">PGL - Tuesday Morning</span></strong></h3> <p>We all slept well and enjoyed a yummy breakfast.

This afternoon&#39;s fun filled activities are the Giant Swing and the Trapeze (with one group braving it first for the raft building). The children have been very well behaved and received compliments this morning during the abseiling.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/images/events/Aeroball_2.jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 267px;" />&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;<img alt="" src="/images/events/Aeroball.jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 267px;" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> http://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/Lake.jpgTue, 17 Oct 2017 12:43:12 GMTYr.6 - PGL Mondayhttp://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-10-17-yr-6-pgl-mondayhttp://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-10-17-yr-6-pgl-monday<h3><span style="color:#800000;">PGL - Update</span></h3> <p style="text-align: justify;">A good first day here at PGL. Children were very excited to find out their bedroom groups and activity groups. They now have team names and a team dance! They spent the afternoon completing team challenges and got off to a great start. After a tasty dinner of curry, pie or sausages they played a great game of capture the flag. Team 2 &#39;The Fluffy Pink Unicorns&#39; were the winners. On Tuesday the children have aeroball, abseiling, giant swing and trapeze&nbsp;</p> http://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/images/news/PGL(1).jpgTue, 17 Oct 2017 09:55:51 GMTYr.6 - PGLhttp://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-10-16-yr-6-pglhttp://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-10-16-yr-6-pgl<h3><span style="color:#800000;">Yr.6 -

The way they amused themselves during that hour&nbsp;on Wednesday on the adventure playground when the coach didn&#39;t turn up&nbsp;was amazing. Plus I&#39;ve never had a group which so actively took part in country dancing and many having boy/girl partners without a fuss.

They can be found throughout the year, but are most active between spring and autumn.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Ticks can transmit bacteria that cause diseases, such as Lyme disease, which can lead to very serious conditions if left untreated. Tick bites often go unnoticed, and the tick can remain feeding for several days before dropping off. The longer the tick is in place, the higher the risk of it passing on the infection.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Ticks can attach themselves to an animal or person as they brush by. The best way to avoid being bitten by ticks when you are in wooded or heath areas known to have a high tick population such as the New Forest is by:</p> <ul> <li>Keeping to footpaths and avoiding long grass when out walking.</li> <li>Wearing appropriate clothing in tick-infested areas (a long sleeve shirt and trousers tucked into your socks)</li> <li>Using insect repellents</li> <li>Making sure that ticks are not brought home on your clothes - wearing light coloured fabrics that may help you spot a tick on your clothes</li> <li>Remove the tick as soon as possible</li> <li>The only safe way to remove a tick is to use a pair of fine tipped tweezers, or an east to use device which can be purchased from all good retailers</li> <li>Grasp the tick as close to the skin as possible. &nbsp;Pull upwards slowly and firmly as mouthparts left in the skin can cause a local infection</li> <li>Once removed, apply antiseptic to the bit area and keep an eye on it for several weeks for any changes</li> <li>Contact your GP if you begin to feel unwell and remember to tell them if you were bitten by a tick.</li> </ul> <p><a href="http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Lyme-disease/Pages/Introduction.aspx"><u>NHS Choices offers more information on signs, symptoms and treatments for Lyme disease.</u></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin-left:2.0cm;">&nbsp;</p> http://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/images/news/Tick.jpgMon, 15 May 2017 10:35:25 GMTLibrary Competition - May 2017http://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-05-05-library-competition-may-2017http://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-05-05-library-competition-may-2017<h4><span style="color:#800000;"><strong>Library Competition - May 2017</strong></span></h4> <p>This month we are asking for the pupils to design a bookmark.</p> <p>The winner will be announced in assembly on 26th May. &nbsp;Entries should be given to Mrs Carpenter by 24th May please.</p> http://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/images/news/Design_a_bookmark.pngFri, 05 May 2017 13:50:10 GMTExtreme Reading - Winners!http://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-05-05-extreme-reading-winnershttp://stmichaelscejunior.co.uk/news/latest/2017-05-05-extreme-reading-winners<h3><span style="color:#800000;"><strong>Extreme Reading - Competition Winners</strong></span></h3> <p>To get the children excited about reading during the Easter holidays we launched a whole school &lsquo;Extreme Reading&rsquo;
