Academic Enrichment Day

Children from Parbold Douglas Academy attend this special day

Today we welcomed children from Years 4, 5 and 6 at Parbold Douglas Academy to school for an Academic Enrichment day.

They spent the morning trying to crack some codes in Maths with Mrs McConnon and Miss McLaughlin and had fun writing poetry in English with Miss Smith. There were plenty of ‘bangs!’ and ‘crashes!’ to be heard as the children used onomatopoeia to bring their poems to life.

After a tasty lunch it was time to move onto the Modern Foreign Languages department for German and Mandarin lessons with Mrs Buckley and Mrs Jolly. The children learnt new words and songs in Mandarin and were able to tell Mrs Horner their names in German at the end of the day.

Everybody enjoyed their day and the children were enthusiastic, polite and very well behaved. Thank you to Mr Jones from Parbold for accompanying the children – we hope you all enjoyed the day!
