Lab_ 13 had an event in the wildlife area to launch our new family club! It was a campfire in Mr Allen’s Fire-pit, we invited any pupils and their parents to come along. From now on every Friday will be the “Family_lab” after school, when pupils can bring someone from their family to do some fun science together!
We roasted marshmallows and when we ran out, people decided to roast biscuits. We had the mobile suggestion board up for the parents and children to give us some ideas for our family club on Fridays. Miss Draper brought out some learnpads and we had to find a list of plants and other things that are in the wildlife area. Then we had to take a picture of the plant and when you found everything you won a prize which in this case was an “I love Lab_13” badge.
Mr Alan made the fire-pit and the committee helped: by weeding the area around the fire pit, collecting lots of dead wood to burn, and making special extra-long marshmallow roasting sticks! We had a lot of biscuits and marshmallows, even though Sam lost a few of his biscuits in the fire. Luckily the wasps nest was gone because they would’ve suffocated if they breathed in the smoke, and they might have stung some of the visitors. All the biscuits and marshmallows were gone except the plain digestives!
