We cordially invite you to our fairytale banquet with the King and Queen...

Early Years were invited to a Fairytale ball by the King and Queen earlier this week as an end to our Once Upon a Time topic. We all came to school dressed as fairytale characters. We had princes and princesses, pirates and even a pig!

We started the day with fun and fabulous fairytale activities. We made yummy cakes, sparkly crowns and searched for the crown jewels. After lunch we then showed off our super outfits with a parade before settling down at our tables for our banquet. It was a gorgeous day with the sun shining, so we took the ball outside. We sat at long tables to eat scrumptious fruit jelly and ice cream (remembering our table manners!) and listened to some orchestral music. After, we had the opportunity to share our talents and perform a song or dance on our stage! We have some great singers in Early Years! To finish off the afternoon, we all joined together for a dance and learned how to dance with a partner to the Waltz.

We all had a lovely day, full of fairytale and fantasy!

Spaghetti towers

How do you build a tall tower using only spaghetti and jelly sweets? With lots of patience and hard work.

Science club discovered that some shapes are stronger than others even when they are made from spaghetti and jelly sweets. The challenge was to make a tall tower which could stand alone. We found that the towers which had a square or triangular base were the strongest.

Why not try it at home?
