The Great Science Share for Schools


This week we took part in the Great Science Share for Schools. It is a day where the children share their own scientific questions and investigations. The children focused their questions on magnets and making comparisons around the body.

We sat in on a live discussion with scientist Brian Cox and a panel of experts answering questions about the planet.

The children came up with their own questions that they wanted to find the answers to and this will be this weeks homework task! 

See the photos of us in action! 

We have enjoyed cooking recipes with seasonal fruit and vegetables. We have made rhubarb flapjacks, potato, onion and feta fritters, bombay potatoes and apricot tray bake! My goodness school has smelt good over the last few weeks! I know that many of the children have tried new foods and spices for the first time and loved them also that they have been inspired to cook the same recipes at home which is brilliant!

Good morning Owl class


I look forward to seeing as many of you as I can this morning, please have a piece of paper and pencil ready for our session! 

Good morning Owl class,


This is not the start of the new term that we had all planned! but hopefully we will know more later today about if we will be returning back to school on Wednesday or not, I know that my fingers are crossed that we will all be back together this week. I have sent lesson plans for you for today and Tuesday. I know you do not have your books so the tasks can all be completed with resources that you have at home or completed on a computer. I hope you have received your invite for a zoom meeting this morning at 9.00 and look forward to seeing as many of you as I can then.

Have a lovely day.
