B Cador: March 2019
Y5 became Easter Detectives when they were invited to Broomhall Chapel on Thursday to explore and investigate the Easter Story through a range of activities including music making, seed planting and enjoying watching short dramas.
Mrs Clarke was really impressed with the children and, on her return to school, told me that the children had been able to recall their previous learning very well. In her review of the morning for the chapel, Mrs Clarke wrote: "The children had a wonderful time learning about the Easter Story in a practical and fun way. They were fully engaged throughout the morning ~ only positive comments from them afterwards."
Here are some of them:
"I really enjoyed it. My favourite part was hen we played the instruments when Jesus was calming the storm." Lauren
"I really liked it. My best bit was eating the cricket!" Sophie
"It was fun when the Jewish Priest barged in!" Dom
"It was really funny when the man was playing all the instruments." Jerry
"It was really fun. I really enjoyed being a detective and filling in our detective book." Frayer
