1957 celebration day

As part of our celebrations of Wyberton's 60th birthday, Badger class were transported back to 1957 and took part in a school day. We started our day off learning to country dance and maypole dancing. We were all amazed at the different patterns that we made using the ribbons. We then recited our times tables in the style that was used in the 1957. If we got it wrong, the children had to put their hands on their heads until they answered it correctly.

In the afternoon, we demonstrated what we had learnt in an assembly where past pupils attended and also the Mayor of Boston who cut our celebration cake. At the end of the day, we welcomed parents in to share our work from a 1957 day.

"What an inspiration!"

Wyberton Primary School welcomed Gail Clarke, an author, for the day to share her books with the children and to discuss her career. Badger class were lucky to listen to Gail Clarke in the hall as she bought her books to life with puppets and of course, voices to go with the characters. The children left inspired with many children in awe of her work. A great day that has certainly got the creative writing flowing!



Exploring Viking life

Today, Badger class made the long trip to The Collection to learn about life in the Viking era as an introduction to our project. We looked at how Viking's traded, artefacts, the clothes that they wore and made our own jewellery. A big thank you to The Collection for havng us all for the day. We are now excited about the Vikings and finding out if they were truly vicious!


National Poetry Day Workshop

Today we immersed ourselves into different style poems such as rhyming poems, kenning poems and shape poems and created a Christmas/Winter poem for a local competition. In the afternoon, we were joined by parents, granparents and carers who enjoyed creating their own poems by rolling a dice and writing a sentence with syllables that matched the number on the dice. Thank you to all who came to celebrate our hard work during the day.
