One last walk around after school […]


Final preparations underway for science festival

Children and staff have been busy this week getting experiments recorded, investigations completed, scripts tweaked and presentations rehearsed. The atmosphere has been purposeful with children working away in classrooms, the library, art room, and even corridors.


Making our creations!

Today, we have been in the art room creating all the bits for our Science Festival. We made art work out of clay, paint and paper mache.

Class Gallery

In preparation for the Science Festival, year 3 have been creating their project boards. As they are nearly finished, we decided to have class galleries to get helpful feedback. The children really enjoyed seeing their year groups work and receiving feedback. It definitely motivated them to keep going!
