Children's thoughts from the day: "I found the pumpkins in the Great Hall amazing, I've never seen it dressed with pumpkins before." "It was so much fun, I'll definitely come again!" "Just standing next to the Hogwarts Express, even though it wasn't the real thing, was incredible." "Best school trip ever!" "The spiders [...]
Year 5 are carrying out experiments to collect data and statistics over time, exploring different materials and how their form can be changed. This experiment involved investigating how the temperature of water affected the time it takes for sugar to dissolve. Do you think the cold, warm or boiling water dissolved the sugar first? Do [...]
After a day of themed activities, Years 5 and 6 rounded off their Autumn term topic by performing their Greek dances and a version of the Hercules story which they had written in rhyme!

We are pleased to announce that despite the Athenians being hugely outnumbered again, no serious injury was sustained beyond [...]

Looking at both vegetation and the wildlife, the children have located the areas of rainforest around the word and painted diagrams of the forest structure. Whilst we are enjoying our display and overgrown corridor, we are still disappointed that we cannot visit a Rainforest [...]
