The Dukeries Academy becomes a 'Wonderland'

Dukeries Wonderland Transformation

Today The Dukeries Academy was transformed into a 'Wonderland' for 220 year 5 pupils from the local family of schools. Pupils attended a 'Mad Hatter's Tea Party' event focussing on Literacy and STEM subjects which was delivered through a range of exciting activities. These included filming using green screen technology, Jabberwocky nonsense poetry, 'Drink Me' potions using dry ice, box making using nets, white rabbit kung fu and circus skills with a science twist. The children all enjoyed a Mad Hatter's Tea Party style lunch and the day was completed with an exciting light show performance. Year 5 pupils were thoroughly engaged and brilliantly behaved, throughout the day and were a credit to themselves and their own schools. we hope to se them all again soon!
