19.03.20 - Easter has come a little bit early this year - thanks to Noble Foods for bringing us these lovely Easter Eggs to enjoy!!

On Tuesday 3rd March 2020 Jasmine represented Aegir - A Specialist Academy at the Lincoln Music and Drama Festival 2020 - the first time a student from Aegir has entered the event. Jasmine was entered for two poetry classes: Up to Y9 Light Verse Speaking and Up to Y9 Verse Speaking. Jasmine learned both poems by heart 'Visit to a Graveyard' by Eric Finney which was 8 verses long and 'Old Man Platypus' by A.B. (Banjo) Patterson - 5 verses long. Jasmine was placed third in the Verse Speaking Class which was a tremendous result!

Aegir Scouts go camping in the cold!

On the 5th February, 4th Gainsborough, 1st Mayflower Academy Scout group went to Laughterton campsite to stay over.

When we arrived we pitched our tents and set up our beds. We then played football and board games.

We had pizza and chips for tea and Mrs Buxton came to visit.

We then had a campfire and sang songs and toasted marshmallows. We kept doing that until most of us were really tired and went to sleep.

The next day it was cold and there was frost on the tents.

We had sausage sandwiches and cereal for breakfast. We played some games and sat around the fire.

We walked to the river Trent and practised map reading skills. We enjoyed breaking the ice on the puddles.

We then packed away the tents, tidied up, loaded the bus and went back to school.

The Scouts really enjoyed the camp, here is what they thought:

“It was cold, but it was worth it for the experience”

“I was really happy”

“It was good”

“Fun and Freezing”.
