Welcome to this week's edition of Portway Press.  Highlights include:

  • Year 4 were treated to a Mayan Workshop held at school, where they learnt about this ancient South American culture.
  • Year 3 experienced another famous ancient culture, as they took part in an Egyptian Workshop at school.
  • A group of year 5 and 6 children attended a badminton festival at Newham Leisure Centre to test a variety of skills needed for badminton.
  • Congratulations to our readers, writers and mathletes of the week, who have once again done a marvellous job.
  • As previously advised, at Portway, we are focused on the wellbeing of our whole staff community - our children, our parents and our staff.  As part of this commitment, we have embarked on an accreditation programme run by Wellbeing Award for Schools, administered by Award Place.  Please get in touch if you are able to get inolved to support this important work.
  • Finally, a number of children took part in the filming of a new video for the company Musical Dots, which makes engaing music videos to support children and parents.

We are looking forward to supporting Red Nose Day on Friday 15th March, in order to raise funds for Comic Relief.  Thank you in advance for any contribution you are able to make to this cause.
