    "We traveled to Harrow hive with a bus and walking. We played five games and we lost one (0-2) drew one (0-0) and won three.

  • Rights Respecting School Award

    Published 20/10/23

    The pupils, staff and parents at Elmgrove Primary School and Nursery have worked exceptionally hard to achieve the GOLD Award for UNICEF UK’s Rights Respecting Schools Award. We are all delighted with this news. It is an internationally recognised prestigious award for excellence.

    The pupils and staff have shown a continued commitment where the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is at the heart of policy and practice. The children have demonstrated good knowledge and understanding of rights and are aware of a wide range of articles showing confidence in the concepts of rights for all children. Pupil voice is highly valued at Elmgrove where the children have many opportunities to have their suggestions listened to and acted on. There is mutual respect and trust between the children and adults, allowing learning about rights in a positive way.

    Thank you to all the exceptional Rights Respecting Rangers who have empowered the children in raising awareness of their rights and responsibilities, through assemblies, discussions and campaigns which affect children both locally and globally.

    The Rights Respecting Rangers have successfully focused their campaigns on the effects of plastic pollution, the environmental Climate Catastrophe and highlighting the Cost of living Crisis.

    Everyone involved should be incredibly proud of this achievement. Congratulations on the great work in earning the GOLD Award!

    4pm

    After a long journey through some horrendous traffic, we arrived safely at the Pioneer Centre. Everyone is currently settling in and will be jumping into their first activity shortly.

    6pm

    We have settled in beautifully. Abseiling and zip wire was our first activity which we all thoroughly enjoyed and are all feeling proud of our achievements. Dinner soon and then onto the next activity. Weather is dry!

    We ended the evening with a campfire!

    Thursday 5th October

    9am

    We all slept well and are looking forward to our day’s activities. Slight drizzle today – fingers crossed the weather clears up! 

    11am

    We are on our first activities this morning. Abseiling, high wire and archery. This afternoon we will be building rafts and testing them. 

    1pm

    The morning activities are done and we are off to lunch. We had some completing the leap of faith this morning and we have some who managed to climb to the top of the tower!

    5pm 

    We have had a very wet afternoon building our own rafts and testing them on the water. Some people fell in but that did not stop us all from having a great time. We have also been caving and learning archery and tonight we will enjoy the tuck shop and movie night... 

    Friday 6th October

    11am

    We have woken on our last day to a dry but cloudy day. We have packed and enjoyed our last breakfast here. We are now completing our final activities before we say goodbye to the Pioneer Centre and begin our journey home. Our aim is to be home for the end of the school day but we will update the school as we travel.

  • Count on Us Maths Challenge

    Published 04/07/23

    On Tuesday, three children from Y5 took part in the Count on us primary challenge grand final. Over 64 schools across London competed in the competition. The standard was very high this year and the challenges were extremely difficult. Team Elmgrove were crowned the champions for the second consecutive year. Congratulations to Danish 5G, Rihana 5S and Abdul 5G for winning the competition. This is an outstanding achievement and we are so proud. They have shown excellent dedication, commitment and resilience over the last 6 months. A huge thank you to the children for all their hard work.

    Count on us primary challenge 2023 - Written by Danish 5G

    The Count on us primary challenge took place at City Hall on the 4th of July. We arrived at the Northwick Park station at 7:45 am. We had travelled around 2 hours to City Hall. The tournament started at 10:00 am, the first round was shapes. First, we had to solve one T- shape question, one pentomino question and a domino question - we solved it in about 3 minutes! Next we had 5 more T-shape questions and 4 pentomino questions which took us around 5 minutes to solve. We counted our points and already had 120 points out of 200 which was not bad. The next game was the 24 Game. This was our best game, in total we scored 294 points! The third and final round was Codebreaking. There were 4 Codebreaking sheets that we had to solve for clues to which jobs we needed to do to get £16.25. We then completed bonus challenges which included solving tangrams puzzles. The awards ceremony seemed like it took forever. Then finally they announced first place. We didn't know if we had won or not and then they said it, Elmgrove Primary school! We all jumped up in joy as we went to the front to claim our trophy.
