Year 5 Gilwell Park Update - Tuesday 8th May

Day Two at Gilwell

Breakfast was amazing- eggs, beans, toast, sausages, hash browns , bacon and cereal. After that, we went back to the lodge to collect water and sun cream then got ready for our first activities. 

Over the last 48 hours, each child has experienced new activities including: 3G swing, free fall, raft building and crate stacking. 

Lunch was really tasty too and we’re looking forward to this evening’s hike after dinner. 

From Team 1

Year 5 Gilwell Park Update - Wednesday 9th May

Day three at Gilwell

Everyone slept much better last night. Every room was quiet by 10 and the teachers even had to wake us up for breakfast at 730! We think it was Tuesday evening’s trek that tired us out (and the late night on Monday!). 

Today’s activities included another amazing breakfast,zip wires, raft building and 3G swing. The sun is shining and we’re all drinking lots of water and putting on lots of sun cream. We’re all very excited about this evening’s campfire which will be extra special for one pupil who has their birthday today!

Snaresbrook Library App

As part of Book Week, we are launching the Micro Librarian App. This is really exciting because, as parents, you can now access the school library from your phone or tablet.

The app is free to download from the APP store and on Google play. 

Each child has been given a code to access the APP so once you have downloaded it please enter the number along with your child's class. The code is the same as your child's library bar code number (for example 2347 2CM). 

The ILMS APP is a great resource as it means you can:

  • Search the library resources
  • View the latest and most popular books
  • Write and record video reviews
  • Check your child's library account 
  • View recommended reads
  • Request/suggest books for the school to purchase


We hope you find the APP useful.

This week the children were given the task to create a reaction game using coding. The children programmed the micro bits using coding.

Upper KS2 made a 'Rock, Paper and Scissors' game. Their challenge was to implement the next stage of the code.

Primary Science Quality Mark Silver Award

We are pleased to announce that the school has attained the Primary Science Quality Mark Silver Award. This award recognizes the quality of Science teaching and learning in Snaresbrook Primary School. We are very proud of this achievement!

DUJlR7bXkAAVPeq (1)


On Wednesday 24th, some girls from UKS2 we’re lucky enough to participate in a special workshop: Robogals. 
Robogals is an international organisation which aims to inspire young girls to continue studying science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects.
We have incredibly talented young women at Snaresbrook who are capable of great things. Their teacher Rose McDermott said, “I wanted to organise something which would inspire them and show them that women can study these subjects beyond GCSE and degree level; that there are interesting and accessible jobs for them.”
The pupils worked in small teams to build robots and then had to use a computer programme to code them to move around the room without bumping into the walls. 
“It was really great getting to programme the robots. It as really cool and I’d love to do it again. I might even go to that university when I grow up,” Nielle (Year 5) stated. We were all very grateful to the volunteers who gave up their time. 
More information can be found at Robogals.org
We would highly recommend it, it is a great organisation.
