Yesterday the Nursery children had a lovely visit from the animal lady, Mrs Reynolds. She had with her a lovely selection of nocturnal animals. She had Willow the barn owl, a little owl called Midge, a pigmy hedgehog called Branston (prickle), Victor the turtle, Zippy the marine toad and a Macleays stick insect called Shelia. The children sat beautifully as she shared information about the animals, we are very proud of you!
We would love to hear which animal your child liked best and why.
We have had a fantastic week in the Nursery learning all about Autumn. The children have made some brilliant Autumn leaves to go on our windows, they look amazing! We talked about nocturnal animals and then they created some brilliant paintings and drawings of hedgehogs, they have worked so hard. Thank you to everyone who brought in Autumn treasures for us to look at.

Well done everyone!
As an introduction into forces the children in Year 1 investigated push and pull forces in different ways. We pushed and pulled playdough, pushed over dominoes and tin cans, investigated magnets and pushed and pulled a car in paint to make tracks. We then learnt about Isaac Newton and his discovery of gravity. We have lots of super scientists in the making!
The whole school have been investigating Rocket Mice as part of their STEM week learning. Here we are in Y5 preparing and launching our mice before measuring which went the furthest. Leo asked if the weight affects how far they travel so we addeld little pea sized blobs of blu-tac to the mice and measured the distance travelled each time.
Year 1/1 had a fantastic time in the sublime science workshop. They were amazed by all the science experiments Danielle showed us. These included making a tornado inside a bottle which made the liquid transfer through quicker, exploring vibrations through the thunder drum and also popping gas bubbles.
Thank you Dynamic Danielle for a brilliant workshop and to Mrs Carney for organising it. We learnt so much!
