This week started off with the discovery of a 'message in a bottle' which the children found in the school pond. A plea for help from someone stranded on a island then gave them a focus for their writing. The finale came on Friday when they put their message in a bottle and practised their throwing skills by aiming it into the paddling pool! Everyone then chose a bottle to take home and read to their family.
The children also enjoyed using their problem solving skills to work out different ways they might be able to escape from an island.
