Pow- WOW!

Home » News » Pow- WOW!

Well year 3, what can I say? I think Mrs Casserley summed it up best when she said 'You've certainly put the WOW in Powwow!'

Our day started with a Native American Indian story and then we made sure the whole day was a success by burning some sage, gathered from the school grounds and dried in advance. This is a tradition used in Native American prayer ceremonies to ward off nasty spirits and it certainly made camp smell lovely!

Then we danced, sang and performed our hoop dance to the beat of a drum and Land of the Silver Birch.

Next, we held a treasure hunt, solving riddles and seeking out clues. We had to unscramble the letters we'd found....and spelled out SUCCESS. We were rewarded with some of our picnic treats! Yummy!

After break, we enjoyed a peaceful hour drawing and painting Native American Indian scenes and then sat down to our picnic lunch with more goodies — which were amazing creations: a chocolate longhouse, gingerbread Native Americans, campfire cakes...and so much more!

We had lunchtime games on the school field and then our afternoon began. We took part in a quiz which helped to recap our knowledge, played traditional Native American Indian games (Frog races, the Keeper of the Fire) and even played board games we had designed ourselves. We ended our day with the story, The Return of the Indian, a slice of Luke's longhouse cake and, finally, performed our hoop dance once more for mums and dads.

What a fantastic end of term celebration. Thanks to every single member of year 3 (and Mums and Dads) for incredible regalia — and headdresses, delicious and inspired picnic treats and for entering FULLY into the spirit of the day.

Our day will be shared through a photo gallery in study work books.

Leo said he didn't want the day to end. I couldn't put it better myself...and above all I hope it's been a day you will remember for a long, long time to come!

Native Americans have a saying 'Take only what you need and leave the land as you found it'. By the time we left school, our camp had been taken down and not a trace of our day could be found!

Just brilliant! well done everyone!
