For Your Information
The summer holidays will finally be here at 215pm on Tuesday 23rd July and hopefully the sun will make an extended appearance too!
 
There are lots of things available to families throughout the summer and we have displayed this information on the noticeboards in the alleyway between the main gates to both sites. We have listed activities to do, cheap or free places for children to eat and information about courses happening for families supporting children with additional needs. Don't forget to take a photo when you are collecting your child at the end of the day!
 
We are aware that the holidays are not always easy as normal routine and everyday life is suddenly changed (and that's for children too, not just us adults!). If you are finding it challenging, then please visit our website page which lists the support agencies available: Signposts to support home adults
 
We hope you all have an enjoyable break and can't wait to see you back on Wednesday 4th September for another exciting year ahead!

Science Day

By Chestnut Class, in Year 1 - Friday, 14 June 2024

We had a great Science Day doing lots of science related activities. We started by having Ethan, a STEM ambassador, coming to talk to us about climate change and things we can do to help.

We then looked at the book 'Greta and the Giants' and talked about the importance of trees and how they help us. We discussed how cutting down lots of trees can cause climate change and how it impacts us and other animals.

We then looked at the scientist Dr Angie Burnett who is a plant biologist. We found out this meant that she completes experiments with plants, such as seeing the best environment for them to grow. We then had our own seed to plant which we will watch germinate and then put into soil and continue to watch it grow.

Finally, we looked at the author and illustrator Eric Carle. We used collage to create our own flower picture making sure to include the different parts of a flower.
