We have had a very exciting afternoon…Mrs Fennelly came rushing into the reception area telling us that something had landed on the field, the children had some guesses of what it could be…some said it was Lady Arabella, Simon the knight or a superhero coming to visit us early….
We then got called into the hall for an emergency assembly, the children were very excited as they knew it was about what was on the field, they were talking to each other about what it could be.
When we arrived in the hall Mrs Fennelly was standing at the front and said to the children “that a neighbour had called the school to explain that something had landed in the trees” ….Paul the site supervisor came rushing in with a parachute and a backpack on his back, he left a trail of mud and water all down the middle of the hall.
At the top of the bag was an envelope, the letter was read out to all the children. It stated that from the 1st June (so after half term) we are going to be exploring the Enchanted Kingdom and we all need to come dressed up as explorers on the Monday 1st June, ready for the adventure. There was also a mobile phone number on the front of the envelope.
We then opened the backpack to see what was inside, there was a variety of items that an explorer would use to give the children some ideas, these included:
A world map
Wind up torch
Warm waterproof coat
Walking and rock climbing shoes
A map of Northampton
We then phoned the number that was on the envelope and it was Mr Rees who answered the phone! Mrs Fennelly was shocked to hear that it was him, as were the children. She then explained to Mr Rees what had happened on the field and what we need to do next term.
This all sounds very exciting and we can’t wait to join in with the adventure that next term will bring.
Get ready to be explorers to explore this Enchanted Kingdom. See your child’s Key Skills book for what you can do over the half term holidays.
