Please watch this space for news and event information.

This week we have been learning all about forces. We conducted and EGGSPERIMENT to test the relationship between surface area and air resistance. The objective was to build a capsule for an eggy astronaut with a parachute large enough to slow the descent of the egg enough to ensure it had a soft-boiled landing. As you can imagine, it got messy! Take a look at our designs:

This week we have been building our rainforest models in design and technology. The children worked so well in their teams and have made some fantastic models! Take a look at the pictures:

Welcome back to school and to our brand new school jotter page! On this page, we will share news about what has been happening in the classroom and we will also tell you about any upcoming events.

Your children have made a fantastic start to the new year, and I have been so impressed by their love of learning and enthusiasm in the classroom. We have lots of fun together! 

This term, our topic is going to be about Rainforests so if the children would like, they can make a creative topic homework this term (this could be a video, PowerPoint presentation, 3D model or a poster). Once they have made it, please bring I to school so we can celebrate their learning and creativity.

Don't forget that on every Thursday the children will need to come dressed in PE kits ready for their lesson on a Thursday afternoon.

It's going to be an exciting year and we are very much looking forward to it.

Take care

Miss Mackell, Mrs Cratchley and Mrs Bestwick
