Easter Egg-Stravaganza

CaptureAs you may know, the Easter Egg-stravaganza is next week (Thursday 6th April). Today, people are wearing non-uniform and brought in chocolate to donate. Looking at the amount of chocolate that was brought in, it looks like a lot of people want to support the Easter Egg-Stravaganza!

The Easter Egg-Stravaganza is on Thursday afternoon and we will be allowed to play the games that have been set up to win the chocolate. There is a wide variety of fun games for all students and the afternoon will be packed full of fun!

Also, there is an Easter egg competition, this is when you can design and bring in a decorated egg for a chance to win more chocolate!

Last year, there were Ant and Degg’s Saturday Night Takeaway egg, a lamb egg, Humpty Dumpty, The Three Little Pigs and many more.

Mother’s Day Service

flowerThis morning, we held an assembly that all the mums could attend if their child was in Years 5 or 6. Here is an extract from what we got told about where and when the origins of Mother’s Day came from:

“Mother’s day originates from when people visited their mother church. They would also pay more respect to their mother’s on that day. Mother’s day is always on the fourth Sunday in lent and this year it is held on 26th March.”

Do you help your mum on Mother’s Day? Could you make her breakfast in bed or take her out somewhere? If so, she will love it! Sometimes you don’t need to buy big presents; it’s the little things that count, like if you make her a homemade card instead of a bought one.

World Book Day

WBDWorld Book Day is an event held in March each year. It is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and of course reading! This year is the 20th anniversary of World Book Day and children all around the world will dress up as their favourite children’s book character to celebrate.

Lots of staff and students took part this year; here is a photo of the students who won the fancy dress competition!

SuperTruck: Trucks Move Only When You Move!

supertruckOverview:

SuperTruck (2016) is a game developed by Landfall Games and is a mash-up between two of their other games: SuperHot and ClusterTruck (both 2016).

Gameplay:

SuperTruck combines the mechanics of the two aforementioned games. You start off on top of a truck at the back of a queue, and the trucks band together, You have to jump from truck to truck until you reach the goal. However, two SuperHot elements are added in; the trucks are all red, and time moves only when you move.

Altogether I thought this was a really interesting game to play, though unfortunately it is no longer being updated, as Landfall Games are working on other projects and have probably forgotten about this game!

A New Year’s Poem

sunburn300It’s time for a new start,

A fresh slate, a new chapter,

New feelings, meeting new people,

Although but not everything is new…

The snow starts falling, then the plants start sprouting, the babies are born, then they start growing,

The sun is still shining, and the moon is still glowing,

The leaves start to fall and the frost starts to climb over the grass,

Until finally, it’s winter again…
