On Tuesday 25th June 240 VIP Wristband wearing Year 5 pupils from local primary schools attended our very own Festival, NG Fest 2019! Equipped with festival lanyards to navigate their way around the activity arenas they experienced a variety of exciting workshops. Mini Masterchefs in the making made Manchester Bee butterfly cupcakes and those with green fingers planted sunflowers. Pupils made dreamcatchers using natural materials in a National Trust Workshop and displayed their creative skills in the Art arena making festival flags in the style of Matisse. It was tense in the PE arena with a knock out dodgeball competition and a football tournament. As part of the festival, the students experienced the Fire Festival in Science and got to showcase their own scientific knowledge, read more about the Science Fire Fest here. The finale in the hall saw all the pupils, parents and teachers assemble for a festival performance by our very own Artic Monkeys Lewis and Bradley where Year 5 students waved their flags in a timely Glastonbury fashion! Thank you to all the Year 5s and their teachers who attended- we loved welcoming you to our school.
