We have come to the end of another school year at St Andrews and David Attenborough have had a wonderful time!
We met fluffy chicks, explorers and pirates; set fire to our own 1666 London, visited penguins and paddled in the sea; we competed to be the champions in Bug Club, attendance and Mathletics; and we showed the values of unity, love, excellence and friendship every single day.
On our last day of term we had a party where we said goodbye to our friends that we were leaving, and those that were leaving St. Andrews for new adventures. We even had an appearance from DJ Mikey!
We hope that you all have a fantastic summer, and can’t wait to hear about it in September!
Thank you all for a great year!

KS1 were very lucky to be visited by a real life pirate this week. Captain Dan-Tastic came and taught us about all sorts of aspects of pirate life – we learnt about the different types of ships, where pirates went to sleep, and where they went to the toilet – the POOP DECK! YUCK!!
He showed us lots of different types of swords and daggers, and we even got to see a real flintlock pistol!
We learnt about pirate treasure, and got some of our own to take home forever – how lucky!
There was so much to learn that even the teachers learnt new things – did you know bacon comes from the word buccaneer? These pirates were called this because they would hunt and catch pigs to eat.
Captain Dan-Tastic also taught us that even the male pirates often had long hair, wore sparkly clothes and loved jewellery. Being a pirate sounds like fun 🙂
