  • The BGC Charity Event 2022

    Published 29/09/22

    The BGC Charity Event 2022 took place at Churchill Place on Thursday 29th September 2022. It remembers those who passed away on September 11th 2001. We went because BGC is partners with the Mayor’s Fund for London and we were the champions of the Count on Us Primary Challenge.

    We began our journey at 8:15am from Northwick Park Station. We got on our first train which was only a few stops until we arrived at Finchley Road. Next, we swapped onto another train which was 12 stops to Canary Wharf. We got off the train and we admired the beauty of the place. So many tall buildings upon us. It was a six-minute walk to the building and it looked very grand. We were welcomed warmly by the people who worked at the front desk. We were led to the elevator and we got to a floor where it was full of fun activities. We were taken to a room where there was air hockey, bean bags and a disco floor. After some time of looking around, we got our hair done. We got our face painted and got extensions put in our hair. The people were very talented. Another school had arrived and it was Nelson Primary (the runners up of the competition). We went up and saw the trading floors, they were very fun. We got a picture with a former England and Manchester United Defender Rio Ferdinand. Other celebrities we saw on the trade floors included: Sam Allardyce, Laura Whitmore (we were in the elevator with her), Amanda Holden, Davina McCall and Ben Shepard. A zoo visited and we were able to see many animals and Battersea Dogs came with adorable puppies. We got to make our own hats and a magician came and showed us a few tricks while we were having our lunch.

    We were able to visit some of the offices and we were able to do some trading ourselves. We challenged the adults to a 24 game and of course we won. We also were handed headphones because we were doing a silent disco. We had a great time at the event and we thank BGC and the Mayor’s Fund for London for this wonderful opportunity which we will cherish.

  • Year 3 Stone Age and Iron Age Workshop

    Published 21/09/22

    As part of our exciting topic, ‘Back in time', Year 3 took part in a fantastic workshop day led by one of our Stone Age ancestors! During this visit, the Neolithic Stone Age man arrived, as he did around 12,000 years ago, wearing his fur pelt and carrying his spears and borer. During the workshop the children made their own spearheads out of salt dough, took part in recreating scenes from the Stone Ages and making their own replica of Stonehenge. The children had a great day exploring life in the Stone Ages.

  • Count On Us Primary Maths Challenge

    Published 29/06/22

    On Wednesday, 3 children from Year 5 went to compete in a Maths Primary Challenge. They were called to school at 7:30am and took a 45-minute walk to Northwick Park but the train was severely delayed so we went to Kenton where we finally took a train to Waterloo. After changing trains to the DLR we finally reached to the City Hall. Although we were the last ones to reach there and the furthest ones, it took us two and a half hours. We were confident and nervous at the same time.

    Round 1

    Dominoes. As we were so tired we couldn’t perform very well. We could only get 65/100 but our determination to win was still there. We finished 2 out of 4 bonuses and 3 normal shapes.

    Round 2

    T-shapes. T-shapes was our best game as we knew all 36 shapes. So we confidently finished every bonus within the first round.

    Round 3

    24 Game. 24 was our weakest game as we had focused more on the other two games. In total we scored 73 points which wasn’t a very good score so we had to score full marks in codebreaking.

    Round 4

    Codebreaking. We were certain we had to get full marks to get into the top three. After we finished we realised something didn’t add up. We found our mistake and corrected it.

    Last year, Elmgrove came second and our rivals, Nelson Primary, came third. This time they came 2nd and we came 1st. Roni Savage announced the runners up and after what felt like hours of waiting, we were announced as the winners. We all sprang up in joy, and went to receive our trophy. After many photos, we went home.

    Written by Ameya, Darsh and Faryal.

     

    A HUGE thank you to Mr Gorsia for his dedication when coaching the children towards achieving this award!
