Hook, Line and Sinker!

 

DSC_5699On April 1st the Year 5/6 class were presented with an enormous shock. It was announced that the Government were now introducing semaphore into the curriculum . This was to counteract the rise of digital devices used for communication. They had a clear demonstration of semaphore techniques and were asked to learn the alphabet.

It must be said that although the children took to the challenge brilliantly and many enjoyed the session there were the odd grumbles:

‘What’s the point in this?’

‘When are we ever going to need this in the future?’

‘What were the Government thinking?’

DSC_5693The children were just becoming resigned to the fact that this was going to be a regular addition to the timetable when Miss Marks let the cat out of the bag and shared the April fool!
