No, we aren’t having a nap!
Year 4 have begun our new Science topic on sound. We have been thinking about how sounds travel through different materials. Today, we investigated if sounds travel better through a solid or a gas. We scratched the underside of our tables and listened to the sound that we could hear. Then we repeated the experiment but put our ears on to the desk to see if there was a difference.
We found out that the sound was a lot clearer and louder when it was travelling through the solid compared to the gas.
I wonder if anyone would like to predict what the sound would be like if it was travelling through a liquid? Let us know in the comments below!
The children in Nursery had a lovely visit this afternoon from Mrs Reynolds. She brought in some nocturnal animals for us to see and stroke. We met Shurpur the leopard ghecko, Branston the pigmy hedgehog, Willow the barn owl, a corn snake called Tango and a beautiful chinchilla named Gizmo. The children listened beautifully and were very gentle when stroking the animals. We would love to hear which animal was their favourite.
Year 3 really enjoyed their first lesson finding out about magnets. They were so excited!
Today we have been making friends with trees in Year One. We have found out some amazing information about trees, including the fact that they help to keep humans alive. They are also homes to many wonderful animals and provide them with lots of food. Please have a look at our blog to see how what we have been doing.
Thank you to everyone who has sent us in a autumn selfie. They will all look lovely on our autumn display in nursery.
We have had a fantastic week in the Nursery. The children have created some brilliant art work, sang along to Autumn songs and have been supserstar counters of conkers! Well done everyone!

The children have settled in to school life brilliantly! We hope you have a lovely, well earned half term break with your families.
Today we were really lucky to have a visit from the dental nurse. We learned how to look after our teeth and why it is important to look after our teeth. Remember to brush twice a day, to eat less sugary food and to ask about fluoride varnish!
Thank you to Elliott and his family for sending in these fantastic Autumn photos. It looks like you had an amazing time at the pumpkin farm. 🎃
There’s been an explosion of Autumn in Reception this morning as we are learning about the season. We’ve been on an Autumn walk around the school and have been collaging Autumn trees, making leaf puppets and making leaf rubbings.
We have had a very colourful week in the Nursery!
The children have created their own colour paddles to explore the environment, had a sweetie science experiment, used their hand to see what happens when two colours are mixed together and we have had some fantastic rainbows 🌈
Well done everyone!
