PUPILS got creative when two special events were staged at their school.
Year 8 children at King James’ School, in Almondbury, put their team working skills into practice for an Enterprise Day.
They enjoyed building rockets and using water and air pressure to fire them at targets.
The pupils also experimented to see which kit car would travel the furthest and built metre-high rollercoasters using cardboard and paper.
Pupils in Year 7 took part in World Cultures Day, where they tasted foods from around the world, including French and Asian cuisine – and even snails!
Students composed and performed a piece of Arabian music and in their languages classes role, ordered food.
Assistant headteacher Sean Kelly said the youngsters enjoyed talking part in the events as part of their cultural diversity and enterprise school subjects.
He said “We’ve never run these days before, but they were a big success.
“The most popular events with the pupils were trying all the different food and launching the rockets – some of which went the full width of the football pitch and were very impressive.
“The pupils were very positive and got a lot out of the days. The skills they used, such as teamwork and organisation, are important life skills.”
