We had a whole school drama day on 30th April. We all came into school dressed as pirates. We started the day with a whole school assembly where we practised talking like a pirate. We were warned to take care as anything could happen during the day.
We practised other skills needed to be a pirate. Each class came up with a name for their pirate boat and made their own skull and crossbones flag.
During the day different things happened and we had to overcome many problems.
Captain Clancy stole some treasure. The dastardly parrot was imprisoned. There was a hole on the Leaky Bucket. The pirates from the Roly Poly Pirates had to find the missing parrot babies. There were lots of people that had to walk the plank.
This year for Sport Relief we have been doing hundreds. Each class chose what physical activity they wanted to do and completed their activity in the week of Sport Relief. We did trampolining, running, bikes, slides and much more! We have raised over £500!
Mrs Shuff arranged for 6 duck eggs to come to school so that we could observe the hatching and look after the ducklings.
All classes had the opportunity to observe the duck eggs hatching out. Most days classes visited the science lab to see how far the ducks had got hatching in the incubator. Four eggs hatched successfully and we had great delight watching the ducklings eating, drinking, playing, swimming, sleeping and quacking.
Science Investigation Day
This term, we have had lots of WOW moments in Science across the whole school to include hatching Ducklings in the Science lab (12th – 22nd March) and celebrating British Science week by holding a Science Investigation day on Wednesday March 14th.
Pupils were given opportunities to develop their enjoyment of problem solving in Science which allowed them to transfer skills learnt across other areas of the curriculum and experience the wonders of the world through a variety of Investigations to promote working collaboratively with their peers.
