On Thursday 11th July, six members of Year 3 took part in a special day of activities at Hamstel Junior School, along with 36 other children from across the Portico Academy. Upon their arrival, the children were made aware of some strange circumstances before discovering that an alien egg had fallen from the sky onto the school field. After decoding an important message from Gloop (the alien) the children set about a variety of activities to discover all about the mysterious alien and his home planet. Some children were challenged to build a protective casing to launch the egg back into Space while others worked as tour guides. Another activity involved locating hidden messages with UV light to build a detailed picture of Gloop and his planet. Overall, the day was a huge success and one which the children will certainly remember for years to come!
