Wolf’s Den

The Year 4 children have been working very hard for 5 weeks, making security systems and houses to keep the pigs safe. This week, they presented their finished product to a panel of judges (Mrs Griffiths, Mrs Jeakins and Mr McKean). They had the near impossible task of choosing who’s house and security system was the most effective. The children presented their ideas and demonstrated how the wolf would be captured.

Year 1 came to judge the houses too! They were pretty impressed, especially with all the technical science work that has been happening in Year 4

World Book Day

To celebrate World Book Day and to raise money for BookAid the children and staff at our school dressed up as their favourite book characters. Some of the costumes included Harry Potter, Hermoine Granger and Dumbledore, Wimpy Kid, Tintin and the witch from Room on the Broom. There was even a special appearance from The Gruffalo who read a story to the children during assembly. Thank you to everyone who took part. We have raised £301 so far.

Security talk Year 4

Year 4 have received a letter from the three little pigs pleading for help! They are in danger as Mr G T Wolf is threatening all sorts! The children have formed security companies and are learning all about how to keep a house safe. Mr Somaroo (Lewis’ Dad) from LAS Security came to talk to the children about different security systems that could be used to keep the three little pigs safe. It was a great help.

To celebrate the end of their archaeology training the children then had a graduation ceremony where they were awarded with certificates for all of their hard work.

An exciting afternoon was had by all!
