World Book Day and Theatre Alibi

Due to the snow day, our World Book day had to be postponed this year, so decided to combine it with our Theatre Alibi performance of the the play, ‚ÄėThe Boy Who Climbed Into the Moon.‚Äô ¬†¬†This was a play about a boy called Paul, his family and a lady called Mabel.¬† The play told the story of Paul‚Äôs theory that the moon was a hole and of the adventurers that had travelled there over the years.¬† Pupils also took part in literacy based activities during the day and had a very successful book swap after school.

Escot Viking Experience

Pupils from Fernworthy Class visited the Viking village at Escot.  During their visit, they learnt about the sort of houses Vikings would have lived in, tool making skills and even had a go at grinding wheat and making some bread.
