Before children left to relax over half term, they enjoyed an action-packed Pyrland Day, which is a celebration of togetherness and full of fun, interactive activities.
Our Deputy Head (Pastoral), Mr Steve Watson, created a programme full of all manner of hobbies, sports and action, bringing together members of staff to share their known and hidden talents with the whole school.
So, with the timetable well and truly taken over, pupils could opt for a variety of things, depending on their interests. There was photography and dancing, board games and coding, football and water polo, forest fun and drama, hockey and netball, Harry Potter inspired science, fun with Snoops, cooking and library time, board games and fitness, even robotics and a chance to meet the ponies at the Equestrian Centre! There was also a spot of camping (skills) taking place in the woods, and for our creative pupils, a chance to go wild in the art room.
Steve reflected: "This is a special day to enjoy each other's company in a relaxed setting away from formal learning, with enjoyment being the central focus of the day. This is a great way to finish for half term on a high."
