We enjoyed celebrating Science Day on Friday 13th March. Children explored the theme of ‘Solving the problems of tomorrow in our diverse planet’ which is linked to our Erasmus project Respect, Re-use and Recycle. We were extremely lucky to have specialist Science lessons taught by Mr Richards and Mrs Bubyer who are both parents at our school and also Science teachers at Somervale and Ralph Allen. Early Years and KS1 children loved exploring circuits and creating mini explosions with coca cola and mentos! KS2 enjoyed investigating solar cells and factors that effect cell performance.
From time to time we like to change our normal timetable and have a week to focus on one aspect of the curriculum. During a theme week we might have a range of visitors in school to talk to children in an assembly or to run workshops. We might also have a special sharing assembly.
Book Week and World Book Day 2019
We are very much looking forward to our Book Week which runs from Monday 4th to Friday 8th March. A variety of book-based activities will be happening during the week to inspire us all to enjoy reading more. Come to school dressed-up as a favourite book or film character on Friday 8th March and we are having a special reading at home challenge during the week too. More details to follow.
Single Use Plastic is not so Fantastic!!
We have been waging a war on single use plastics. We are trying not to have them at school and have tackled Sainsbury’s about what they are doing to help our environment.
