Main School Book Jar competition for World Book Day

This year the St Neot’s Prep World Book Day focus for Main School children was on our Book Jar Competition, fitting into the “share a story” theme of the day by asking the children to think about how a favourite or important book could be represented in a simple jar, and then to put those ideas into a jar!Far and away the most popular books to portray were Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series, but the range was widespread, from Diary of a Wimpy Kid to The Silver Sword, War Horse to Alice in Wonderland, Jungle Book to Fing … and dozens more.A total of 109 fabulous jars were submitted at House meetings the day before World Book Day. The children talked about which book they had chosen and why, and it is hoped that some of them gained an idea of some new titles to try. Every jar submitted earned at least two points for the house - and many gained several bonus points for things like creativity, WOW factor, neatness and clear representation of the story. After a lot of consideration, calculation and cross-checking the House result was as follows: First place: Wellesley (84 points)2nd place: Kingsley (83 points)Joint third: Guinness and Austen (76 points)

Year 5 discover some ‘Titanic’ facts at Sea City Museum

On Friday year 5 were given the fantastic opportunity to visit Sea City Museum in Southampton, the city where the Titanic famously departed from. The children were given a guided tour by their superb host (who is related to the youngest person who was on board the ship), and also got the chance to ‘steer the Titanic’, as well as discovering how hard it was to shovel coal into a furnace. They then experienced a brilliant interactive workshop, where they had to debate who should be saved on the lifeboats, learnt about artefacts on board, tried their hand at Morse Code, and took part in an experiment to understand why five compartments being flooded meant that the ship would sink. The children were thoroughly engaged throughout the day, and enjoyed sharing their knowledge about Titanic and all they have learnt this term.

Year 2 go dragon hunting!

Year 2 had some exciting news this afternoon. A video arrived from the Natural History Museum showing a Dragon flying over and landing in the woods here at St Neot's!The scientists from the museum tasked year 2 with searching for any evidence of 'Dragon-ish activity'. To our amazement they found all sorts of evidence, ranging from scales to teeth. In the depths of the woodland they eventually also found an actual Dragon nest! Piecing their evidence together and cross-referencing it with the available information the children came to the conclusion that the Dragon we have nesting on site is a European dragon, who befriends children but is partial to eating up teachers! We're all looking over our shoulders down in Pre-Prep!

Year 4 Monsters

Well done to our year 4 pupils, who produced and described some amazing monsters in French. It was a project to complete their unit on ‘parts of the body’. The monsters were of such a high standard that it was very tricky to choose a winner from each class. After much deliberation Nina B won from 4T and from 4HE Matthew T won, but we are very proud of everybody for their super efforts.  Bravo tout le monde et merci beaucoup from Mme McNeill and Mme De Rosa
