This week has been all about developing leadership skills for the group who did not attend the France trip. The Macmillan coffee afternoon and a mini-Olympics have been organised completely by the children as well as organising to take on more responsibility around school in the weeks to come.
On Thursday, we spent the morning setting up and rehearsing our mini-Olympics ready for Wiggins to take part in the afternoon. Welly wanging, bottle flipping, target penalty shoot out, darts, table tennis and tag rugby were among the activities on offer. All of the children had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon topped off with ice-lollies, kit-kats, apples and popcorns that Wiggins class provided. It was amazing to see the collaboration between Year 6 and the younger children; the adults were completely superfluous to requirements!
Our final day was spent assisting Mrs Fennelly with the whole school assembly before a trip to Tesco to purchase French delicacies that we had to ask for in French before Mrs de Board would let us eat them! Brie, camembert, baguette, croissants, brioche and madeleines were all enjoyed before we danced them off in an exciting afternoon of dance. Mrs Evans showed a clip from West Side Story and then asked us to choreograph our own sequence of moves to depict two rival gangs confronting each other.
Well done team, it’s been a great week.
