We have just got back from our trip to Gressenhall for a Once Upon a Time workshop.
To start the day we all had to gather in the Chapel for the grand opening of Mr Curator’s museum. He had invited some celebrities along; Cinderella and Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk. We were interrupted by the Wicked Witch from Snow White, who was very upset as she hadn’t been invited to the opening. When Mr Curator went to reveal the objects, we were shocked to see they had gone missing! The Wicked Witch told us she had taken them and wouldn’t give them back! Our mission for the day was to take part in lots of different activities and see if we could find all of the museum artefacts.
First, we had to go on Jack's Quest and search for the missing golden egg. We spent lots of time looking up and down and we found it near the playground. We helped Jack to retell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk as he had forgotten some of the words! Because we told the story so well, we got to climb down Jack's beanstalk.
Next, we met the Wicked Witch from Snow White! She taught us how to make a potion and has to go on a hunt to find a dragon scale and some magic water. We then found a magic wand and learnt a spell.
Then we met Mr Curator who asked us to help him look for the missing objects in the shops. We had to be really quiet in case the Witch heard us! We found a magic pea, Grumpy's shoe, a troll’s bogey and a sweetie from the Gingerbread House.
We stopped in the chapel for lunch and a little rest.
After lunch, we headed up to the farmhouse. We searched for fairy tale characters around the farm and we spotted some piglets and a sheep. We then had to help the ugly sisters with their chores. We learnt how to use the water pump, dug up some potatoes, watered the flowers and learnt how to milk a cow.
We then went into the house with Cinderella where she told us that she couldn't go to the ball because she couldn't finish her chores and she didn't have anything to wear. We offered to help her finish her jobs so she could go to the ball. First, we helped her to clean the table, as it was a bit dirty. We rubbed the salt in and then scrubbed it with a brush. Once we had done the cleaning, we helped Cinderella to look for the rest of the missing objects from Mr Curator's museum. We found Red Riding Hood's cape and Cinderella's glass slipper. Our next job was to pick up all the stepsisters socks! We also did a bit of dusting!
We all met back in the Chapel to conclude the day. Mr Curator was really happy that we had managed to find all of the missing objects!
The children had a wonderful day and behaved very well. We are very proud of them all!
