The car park was full on Friday after school and cars lined the street. Word had spread… Upper Plenty Primary School was holding a family fun night. There was something for everyone, including:
* A market
* An art show
* A book launch
* The opening of our new outdoor classroom
* A jumping castle
* A ‘Happy Birthday’ sing-a-long for Ezmond, our school dragon who turned one
The market had a variety of stalls and activities. There were stalls run by professional market people and each class had a stall too.
5/6 Team was in charge of the cake stall.
There was even a special cake in Ezmond’s honour!
We would like to thank everyone who made cakes and slices for us. We received many compliments about your cooking and sold out!
The central learning space was transformed into an art exhibition.
The night also celebrated Ezmond’s first birthday. The whole school sang Ezmond ‘Happy Birthday’ before ‘The Adventures of Ezmond’ was officially launched. The Adventures of Ezmond is a picture storybook. Each student in the school wrote a narrative about Ezmond during our narrative writing focus and created an illustration in art to go with the text. We now have a picture storybook with over 170 stories and everyone is a published author!
Many people were able to visit our newly finished outdoor classroom and garden.
Just when we thought the night couldn’t get any better, there was even a jumping castle!
We would like to thank Mrs Lewis and her team of helpers who spent many months and hundreds of hours working on the outdoor garden, The Adventures of Ezmond and setting up the art exhibition. We would also like to thank Upper Plenty’s Family and Friends group who organised the market and invited each class to have a stall.
What did you enjoy most about the family fete and market night?
How should Ezmond celebrate his next birthday?
