20 Oct Adventures of Fitz and Wills
Arafura and Aegean have been reading about Fitz and Will and the Graduation Adventure during their English Lessons. They are going to write their own versions about Fitz and Will’s adventures so the children have been exploring Cambridge with their class-made Fitz and Will puppets for inspiration.
Last Friday they explored the Botanic Garden as the setting for their own books. Last Monday, the two classes had a wonderful afternoon following in the pawsteps of Fitz and Will. They left CIS and walked into town. Their first stop was the Fitzwilliam museum where they saw the lions on which Fitz and Will sleep. They then continued into town, to look at the river Cam and the Mathematical Bridge (although not part of the book, still interesting). After that, they went to Gonville and Caius. A child in Aegean’s class grandfather is Master of Gonville and Caius so they were allowed into the College. We saw the ‘Avenue of Trees’ and ‘the Gate of Honour’ (all depicted in the book). The most exciting part of the day was going through the ‘Gate of Honour’, a privilege only allowed to those who have graduated from G&C. Finally, they relaxed in the Master’s garden, eating banana bread…Will would’ve loved it! Mrs Ballingall
