Astronomy 2017

Dear Giraffes,

I had a fantastic time at Valley for the Astronomy night and it was made all the better by your fantastic behaviour and attitude towards learning. What were your favourite activities and why? Mine has to be the ice cream and the explosions – they were both so exciting and I learnt so much from them.

Here are a few pictures from the evening,

Good evening Giraffes!

Thank you for a wonderful day today, I thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt lots – did you? Your behaviour was impeccable and you have made me extremely proud to be your teacher and part of the St John’s family!

My favourite sessions were when we were imprisoned in the dungeon and the Victorian Court room, what was yours?

What do you think it would be like in Victorian times in the slums and prisons? Do you think the jury made the right decision about Isabella and John?

I loved how involved you were today and that you asked lots of questions – what did you love about the day? Was there someone in our class who you think deserves a special mention?

There were lots of funny moments today but the funniest moment for me has to be in the dungeon when I screamed and you all ran away screaming (hahahahaha) and I have a video of this some where. I will try to find it and put it on the blog for you to have a good laugh at.

I have uploaded some pictures so you can show your families and talk about our day.

Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Monday!
