Wrangle School News

Wrangle Reporters have decided to write about people and events at Wrangle Primary School. We will be looking at how our local newspapers report on news events, sport, entertainment, fashion, and other items we may find. Some of our articles will reflect local and national news that has been highlighted in the media, including radio and T.V. The Editor and some roving reporters will be going out and about in the area in order to obtain first hand information about our environment.

EDITOR'S NOTE Please email wranglereporters@gmail.com if you have any suggestions or comments. Some of these may be published!

Editor: Jeannette Ellwood

Our Team of Reporters for 2012 is:
Zak, Helena, Georgia, Bethan, Arron and Sophy

P.S.I take full responsibilty for any typos! Just let me know if you spot one and I will send you the Editor's Special Secret Award...

After very busy Christmas activities and a break during the first half of our Spring Term Wrangle Reporters are back to work with writing, reporting and and film making.

Our current projects include filming footage for a DVD about our school, observing nature at Freiston Shore RSPB site, and preparing Art for a continuation of an School exhibition at Giles Academy Art Gallery in nearby Boston.

Future Projects

We are planning a visit to BBC Lincolnshire studios in Lincoln as a followup to Scott Dalton's visit to our school. We are currently arranging poetry sessions with our local poet Annette Burrell and are already looking forward to an Easter visit to the Old Pottery where no doubt a quantity of Sophy's famous cupcakes will be consumed...not to mention the publication of our Writing Rocks story competition results.

Visit to Freiston Shore

Simon's Surprise!

Wrangle Reporters had a wonderful visit to Frieston shore on Wednesday 28th March. At least that was the date but it felt like a warm summer's day. The birds and the people were thoroughly enjoying the warm sunshine and each of us were clever enough to spot a special bird - thanks to the use of the telescopes and binoculars supplied by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. (RSPB). After our session in the hide we walked to the classrooms and out to the back where there was a well stocked natural pond.   We used the nets to trawl in the water to find interesting inhabitants of the pond. We put them in an observation tray so we could look at them under the magnifying glass. When we had looked our fill we carefully put them back so that they could carry on with their busy lives!
We all then went into the classroom where our 'choir' tunefully sang Happy Birthday to Simon who looked really surprised.! His birthday in on Friday. We said '...a little bird told us when it would be...' as we ate our cupcakes and watched Simon blow out his tiny candle perched on the top of his. 

A truly memorable afternoon. The RSPB have a wonderful site to explore with excellent teachers and equipment.  We all decided our short time there was not long enough and a return visit would be a good idea. We resolved to become a 'Bird Friendly School' - more about that next term.

Thank you so much Simon and the RSPB for giving us a great experience.

 Thanks to Mrs Lister for giving us some of her valuable time to accompany us - and for the use of her commodious car!  More from the Wrangle Reporters themselves in the next few days.
