We are almost at the end of the spring term
– where does the time go? This week we have
had a science focus to celebrate ‘science
week’. The children have had great fun trying
out some exciting investigations (and learned
lots of new things).On Thursday we had a visit
from ‘LOVE SCIENCE’ … The children took
part in a variety of workshops & had a great
time. Activities like these really do bring
learning to life and help our children to
develop ‘life skills’. For more details visit
The whole school experienced the Solar
Eclipse on the field this morning. Despite the
cloud cover we were able to safely view this
using water trays and pin hole cameras. We
used our senses; we felt the chill in the air
and listened to the change in atmosphere!

Decorated Egg competition!
The ‘FRIENDS’ are organising a decorated
egg competition with the theme – GENERAL
EGGLECTION! The topic is timely & also
fits in with our work on British Values. The
children can design their egg to represent
an MP (real or made up!). In school we have
talked to the children & they have made
lots of suggestions:–
Alien MP, Monster Raving Loony MP, Animal
MP, MP from another planet, Green Party
MP. I am sure you will be able to think of
many more creative ideas! The ‘FRIENDS’
are sending out further details.
The ‘FRIENDS’ are also selling squares for
50p – the winning square wins a giant Easter
Egg. Squares are on sale next week.
