Captain Hook kidnaps the Lost Boys including Wendy, John and Michael. Peter is left alone and Captain Hook leaves a bottle of poison for Peter to drink. Peter wakes and is going to drink from the bottle thinking it is medicine but Tinkerbell arrives and drinks the poison instead to protect Peter. Tinkerbell collapses, but after reassurances from the audience that yes – we do believe in fairies she recovers. Later Peter ambushes the pirates on the Jolly Roger and after a bit of swashbuckling with Captain Hook – is victorious!
On Thursday 31st of March, 4 amazing pupils Harri Lewis, me, Toby Nye, Menna Ward and Rhys Thomas went to Cine World Cinemas in Newport to compete against 10 other local schools in the Times Spelling Bee. Nervously the 4 of us got registered and went into screen 8. We sat down in the front row. 3 of us Rhys, me and Menna were called up by the team name the Beef Burgers as it brought good luck to Harri and Rhys through primary school and it is still with them to this very day “or we wouldn’t have won” say Rhys and Harri.
At round 3 Menna was knocked out spelling impolite wrong, at round 5 I was knocked out spelling ecclesiastical wrong and finally at round 7 Rhys spelt Anaemia to win the first round for Y Pant and the Collins Medal for being the last man standing!!!
In round 2 Harri, Rhys and I played the quickfire round where we had to spell as many words correctly as possible in 2 minutes. We had 11 tactical passes and two words spelt incorrectly, we spelt 16 words correctly out of the 29. It was a great experience for us all, we were really nervous but we managed to pull it off!!!
Y Pant School has international links with Bulaago School near Mbale, Uganda. Mr Sykes will be visiting and working in Bulaago School during the Easter holidays. The link was made through an organisation known as PONT which stands for Partnerships Overseas Networking Trust. The concepts behind PONT go back as far as the Ethiopian famine of the 1980s where medics from the Pontypridd area worked in the refugee camps. The project seeks to link as many professionals and organisations in the Pontypridd area with their counterparts in Mbale as possible. Hence teachers, engineers, doctors, nurses, local authority managers and politicians visit and work with their colleagues in Uganda to improve the lives of the people in the Mbale region. More information on this can be found on their website.
Mr Sykes will be taking some of the money raised from the selling “tuck” during breaktimes to buy material for Bulaago school. He would also like to take some gifts over for the children of Bulaago School. The children in Uganda particularly value football shirts so if you have any unwanted Man Utd, Arsenal, Chelsea or any other football shirts that you no longer use Mr Sykes would be very grateful for any contributions.
Mr Sykes will be taking money to buy supplies for the school but will also be taking a suitcase full of gifts for the children at the school. They particularly like receiving football shirts. If anyone has any new, or used but good quality football shirts please bring them into school for Mr Sykes to take with him.
