Workington Academy staff and students were thrilled to take Year 6 visitors out of this world on Friday 13th October for a special Sci-Fi spectacular!
“The Academy Strikes Back” was a fun-filled day, during which pupils completed a wide range of Literacy and Science based activities. We had Jedi Slime making workshops, intergalactic Drama sessions, cosmological creative writing tasks and comic book making activities on offer.
Our day’s aims were to provide youngsters from Workington with a secondary school experience, preparing them for their transition into Key Stage 3 in September 2018, as well as ensuring that all of our guests had an enjoyable day to remember.
It was an honour to award prizes to pupils from each of the visiting schools, and it was a tough decision to make as so many of the children had given an incredible amount of effort during the day. We were extremely impressed with the engagement, attitude and hard-work of all of our 320 visitors!
We’ll be announcing the theme for our Summer Transition Day soon…
In the meantime, live long and prosper, and may the force be with you!
