Y5 Taster Day Visit From St Joseph’s, Retford, – Wednesday 12 July 2017


It was a privilege to host Y5 pupils from St Joseph's, Retford, for their Taster Day at McAuley. The day started with a welcome assembly about Noah's Ark from our Chaplain, Polly, who helped us understand what the bible teaches us about taking on new challenges. Y5 were then treated to three inspirational taster lessons. They did a practical lesson in making and measuring liquids of different acidity and alkalinity in Chemistry. "I can't believe I went into a real Science Laboratory!". In Geography they learnt about how we could help solve world famine by eating insects and they made up their own appetizing insect menu, "Eeuyukkkk!" and they built and launched rockets in the Technology Workshop, "My rocket went into next door's field!". To end the day, Y5 were treated to performances by the full McAuley Senior Orchestra (with alumni) in the Theatre. The finale, a rendition of 'Disco Lives' had St Joseph's - and their teachers – dancing in the aisles and they impressed with their YMCA moves!! Pictures and videos from the day are available through the links below! One of the children said that their day was, "... even better than the chocolate crunch I had in afternoon snack!" – praise indeed!! We look forward to seeing you in the Autumn term and, even better, as McAuley pupils in 2018!
