Today we had a very exciting morning with the Fire Service.
It started with a safety talk, where we learnt a song about how to be safe with matches and lighters.
We burnt some of our Tudor houses to act out the Great Fire of London.
We then took turns squiring the fire hose to try to knock over the cones.
But the most excting thing was to get into the fire engine and pretend to be real fire fighters.
What an amazing way to spend a morning.
Today Dan came and we played with some of the new PlayPod equipment. We had to work together to build a way to get across the swamp
We ended our Viking day by playing Viking chess.
Finally the new king was crowned.
Hail king Sam!
Today was a blast!!!!! We had a great opportunity to visit Bourneside and experience life at secondary school. Our journey began in the lecture room, where we were taken through the events of the day.
We were split into two different groups including two other schools, and then our inspirational tour of the school began.
We looked around the Art block, saw the sports hall, had a look at D&T rooms as well as the highlight of the tour – the dining area.
We then had a lecture from a University of Gloucestershire about philosophy and then had a talk by a University lecturer on American History and the history behind the 4th July, American Independence Day.
After lunch we had a lecture about university and geography.
We had an amazing day and a real insight about a day in the life of a secondary school.
Thanks to all the staff at Bourneside and the University Lecturers, we can’t wait to start Year Seven!!
