#WAKWHS2 Working Together

Today we had an exciting afternoon working in house groups with Year 1 and Reception. We worked collaboratively with other children from Wizards, Dragons, Unicorns and Knights exploring different parts of the story.

The different groups used their senses to explore Simon’s adventures so far, this included story whooshes, music making, map drawing and drama to develop and share our vocabulary and ideas.

The children worked fantastically together!

A great afternoon was had by all!


#WAKWHS2 A message from Simon

After the disappearance of Lady Arabella on Monday, we received a scroll yesterday from Knight Simon himself, unfortunately the scroll had been damaged and it’s contents were missing! We had to think about where Simon was writing to us from….we had lots of ideas including:

A tropical rainforest
The depths of an enchanted forest
The belly of a beast
The bottom of the ocean
A dragons lair

Today we boarded Simon’s ship ‘The Industrious’. The ship quickly ran into trouble, there was water, explosions and screaming crew members (the staff!) “abandon ship” “abandon ship” ….. what has happened to Simon and his ship!?


Wow! What at exciting day at SdS, the knighting of Simon this morning was followed by a banquet in the hall at lunch, where the mysterious disappearance of Lady Arabella took place. There has been much speculation about who has taken her and where she has gone….some of the children reported seeing a dragon and even found clues on the playground! Where is Lady Arabella and will Knight Simon save the day??
