At the zero degrees meridian line in Tema
Well today is our last day in Ghana. We will be sad to leave as we have had such a wonderful time but we are excited that we will be able to tell you all about it next week and show you all the photos and videos. We have been treated as guests of honour and we will never forget the generosity of the Ghanaian people. We are very lucky to have had the chance to come here and we look forward to showing the Ghanaian teachers around Westfield next term.
See you on Monday

I hope that you are enjoying your stay in Ghana and I can’t wait to hear all about your experience when you get back .See you soon!
Morning everyone! Miss Rhodes and I have arrived in Accra and have spent a very warm night in a hotel. We were met at the airport by Mr Mallet and Joshua who both work at the Christ Preparatory School. They are so welcoming. Akwaaba, which means ‘Welcome’ is on everyone’s lips. we also met Matilda, a teacher in the primary department and her lovely daughter Betsy. Matilda told us about the school which we’ll be visiting tomorrow.
It’s hot and sticky here.. At least 28 degrees and it’s only half ten. Mr Mallet and Joshua are coming soon to take us into Accra for the day. We feel so lucky to be here and we’ll have lots to tell you next week, especially about the amount of homework Ghanaian children get each night! Ha ha!
Send your comments…we look forward to reading them.

Hello Y5! Miss Rhodes and I have just arrived at our hotel at Heathrow airport. We are enjoying a cup of tea after a hot journey on the underground from King’s Cross. We can see planes flying over the hotel and it’s making us feel even more excited. We’ve been looking at the scrap book from Mrs Gay’s class. It’s absolutely great and we are sure it will be read eagerly in Ghana. Thanks to you all for the pictures, letters, bracelets, photos etc. We feel very lucky to be able to take these special gifts to the school in Tema.
We’re off to have some supper and the try to sleep- it will be difficult as we are soooo excited about tomorrow! Looking forward to reading your comments. we will blog from Ghana if we can get internet access.
Goodnight all- have a look at the moon to see which phase it’s in!

When we were in London we were 1 hour late. We only got 55 minutes at Pineapple Dance studios. Lunch was great. The London Willy Wonka was great!
It was a great day in London and I had so much fun but it was not as big as I thought it would be but it was still very cool. We had so much fun in the theatre. It WAS an amazing day but very tiring as well.
Congratulations go to Lily and Laith for their fantastic performances in the ‘Youth Speaks’ competition last Tuesday. We, in Y5, are all proud of your achievements.
The most thing I’m looking forward too is painting the F1 cars and doing the race with my team, Cloud Rider. Our car is going to be blue with clouds on it! Also I wrote a letter to Cullum Scott to ask if he could sponsor us for our F1 car. LETS HOPE CLOUD RIDER WINS!
Thank you Mrs Sugden and Mrs Gay for all your hard work you have put in to teaching us about WW2! I have really enjoyed learning about things I didn’t know about at the start of the topic! Can,t wait to see what you have up your sleeves for the next topic!
