Science Week
This week the children have been enjoying science week. The children have been investigating about Our Diverse Planet. A part of Science week the children had a visitor from Coopers Secondary School. Mr Galvin, a science technician showed the children how fun science is. They saw explosions, rockets flying in the air, making electricity and making things fly.

Science Week
This week Year 1 have dived into Science Week exploring animals that live in the 7 continents of the world. 
We wanted to compare the animals we found with ones we may have living in our school grounds, so we decided to go on a mini-beast hunt. We found rather a few bugs and was able to make great comparisons to insects and bugs found around the world.

A message from the Year 4 Team!
Hi Everyone!

Whilst you're all busy at home, we've been busy too!

Mrs Goodman is busy on her laptop doing lots of planning ready for your next home learning packs. She is also head teacher at the Goodman Home School and Head Chef at the Goodman Restaurant!

Mrs Harris has been busy in her garden practising her baton twirling so that she can give you a demonstration when you go back to school!

Miss O has been taking advantage of the beautiful weather. She has been enjoying her allowed 'one hour' outside and has been going for a walk or jog everyday to do her daily mile.  She hopes you have all been managing to do your daily mile too!

Finally, Miss Briton has been working hard at school every day.  Today she has been helping the children make Easter cards.  The activity started really well but there was one disruptive pupil!!

Stay safe everyone and keep smiling :-)

Disney Challenge!
Hi Everyone,

We hope you are all keeping well, behaving, working hard but having some fun too!

The Year 6 team have been keeping in touch daily and one of the photos is of us on our group chat!

We miss you all lots, we even miss nagging you all to line up quietly!!

So… the year 6 teachers have been playing a daily Disney challenge – we choose a song and then Miss Bain has to do a dance to it, Miss Philpot plays it on her saxophone and Mrs Cullender has to do something creative. So far, we have done Toy Story (You’ve Got a Friend in Me) and The Lion King (Can You Feel the Love Tonight and Circle of Life), the reason there were two was because Miss Bain misheard and did the wrong one – oops! Today, we are doing Aladdin (A Whole New World) – feel free to join in, parents/carers too!

Please look after each other and take care 😊
