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!

What is the best material for Eddy's coat?

By Chestnut Class, in Year 1 - Monday, 12 February 2024

We were super scientists this afternoon. We had to work out which material would have been best to use for Eddy's raincoat. We decided we needed to test some different materials and find out which of them were waterproof. To make it a fair test, we added the same amount of water and waited for the same amount of time before checking to see if the water had gone through the material. We found that plastic and foil were waterproof but decided plastic would be the best material for a raincoat as it doesn't easily break.
