Who Stealeth The Swine? Pupils from other local schools join Year 4 to investigate
7th November 2016
The medieval theme set by Prep 1 before half term seems to have gathered pace. ‘Who stealeth the swine?’ was the question on the lips of our Prep 4 pupils during their Humanities Impact Day, hosted by the school's Senior Department. They were joined by pupils from a number of other local primary schools in trying to resolve this most serious of crimes.
We often refer to our School Vision words and Wednesday was definitely when we saw our pupils demonstrating many of these – Passion, Confidence, and Courage ( being part of the Senior Department for the day). The day centred on the theme of the stolen pig and consisted of five exciting workshops based on a Medieval theme. Language, Crime and Punishment, and an Archaeological Dig (digging for the bones of the ‘swine’) were combined with the construction of a medieval village, to solve the riddle of who had indeed stolen the Swine, culminating with our newspaper focusing on the ‘oh so dreadful’ crime.
What a credit to the Prep Department the pupils were. Their excitement was infectious and they made our visitors from other schools feel very welcome. Although I have heard a rumour that Mr Coen being stuck in the stocks was their favourite part of the day!! GD
