It’s Swabby’s first day on Captain Doorknob’s pirate ship. He’s nervous about the mission he’s been given. If he doesn’t find out what happened to the Captain’s water, he’ll have to walk the plank!
On Friday the 10th of March, all the year two students and teachers participated in our first incursion of the year! It was called The Water Pirates of Neverland: A Boatload of Trouble!!!!!
The interactive performance was about Water. We learnt about the importance of water in our environment, water pollution and ways we can save water at home. The performance was put on by 2 wonderful actors called, Nick and Tayla, they were from the National Theatre for Children. Their programs tackle important life lessons including energy conservation, the environment, health care, financial literacy, smoking prevention, nutrition, recycling, bullying, water conservation, electrical safety and more.
We learnt for easy and significant ways to save water at home. You can save water at home by turning the tap off when you are brushing your teeth, shorten your shower time to 4-7 minutes, fix leaking taps at home and only washing laundry when you have a full load. We all found out some interesting pieces of information on how to conserve water.
Here is what our students thought:
Harry: “It was cool!!!There was a lot of detail.”
Charli: “It was so amazing, I laughed so hard.”
Aiden: “It was FANTASTIC.”
Harrison: “It was good and a bit funny.”
Safe to say, we had a fantastic afternoon learning about ways to conserve water. We all laughed and enjoyed ourselves. It was the perfect way to spend our Friday learning in a different setting.
