Information from 2017/18
Despite the Arctic temperature outside, it was an ordinary day at Milby Primary School. Year 4 had started their learning and Mrs Grimstead, along with Ethan and Gracie, went to return some sport equipment to the PE shed on the field. When they returned, they looked excited but a little bewildered since they had spotted something strange and unexplained in the woodland area.
Immediately, we were intrigued and wanted to investigate to discover more so we went outside to take a look. When we got to the wooded area, we couldn't believe our eyes. There in front of us was a peculiar and mysterious den that looked like nursery had built it, but we knew they hadn't.
Inside the strange den, there was a washing line with minute, winter clothes hanging off, a glass lantern hung on a twisted branch, a plush toy clown holding a paint brush and a random bicycle tyre lying against a tree. Who could the den belong to? Why are they at Milby?
Because the weather was so perishing, we came inside to discuss our findings. Some children thought it was a den belonging to a young child who had run away from home, while others thought it may have been a den made for fun. One thing we agreed on was that we needed to talk to Mrs Aley because we were not sure if it was safe or not.
After Mrs Evans spoke to Mrs Aley on the phone, she confirmed who it was and that they are safe. It was Jub. Who is Jub? Apparently, Jub is the keeper of happy endings, who visits Milby once a year for one or two nights before leaving for another wooded area.
We have written some questions for Jub in order to find out more about her and why she is at Milby. Hopefully she sticks around for another night to answer them for us.
We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas from the year 4 team.
Thank you for all of your kind donations for our Natural Disaster tea party. Children have enjoyed making structures out of art straws, looking at structural techniques to limit damages caused by an earthquake. Also, children have built dams to withstand floods and experienced tectonic plate movement under the ground; using different materials. We thank you for your support to help make our day a success with the year group.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in the new year.
