ON a wonderfully sunny first day back, Reception pupils at King’s Ely Acremont were amazed to find a mysterious cracked egg shell and some footprints in the den leading out into the garden.

At first, the children talked about what might have broken out of the shell and among the suggestions were a penguin, an ostrich and a chicken, to name just a few.

Then, with great excitement, there was nothing for it but to follow the footprints and the trail of ‘animal poop’ outside where they quickly found a note alongside another unhatched egg.

The note asked them to look after the egg until it hatched and how to care for it. Only time will tell what will eventually hatch out…

New terms at King’s Ely Acremont start with a ‘wow’ day to introduce a new topic: a stimulation that inspires curiosity and fires a child’s natural interest and enthusiasm. Learning is then brought to life throughout the term with the help of hands-on experiences, visits from experts and exciting trips.

Our pupils develop learning habits which stick with them throughout their King’s Ely journey, taking great pride in their achievements along the way.
