Year 3 and 4 had a great afternoon of sports. The girls played inter-house hockey whilst the boys had an afternoon of rugby practice. It was a sunny but cold afternoon but it didn't stop the children from playing, the faster they ran the warmer they got. Here are some photos of their games session.

Year 4 started a new topic on Solids and Liquids and today the children have been learning about how particles behave in solids, liquids and gases.

'The gases' were the children (playing [...]
What an interesting lesson Year 5 have had in Science. They have used a pulse oximeter to determine their pulse rate and the oxygen saturation levels of their body. Here are some photos of them working, they completed a table of their results to find out what pulse rates and oxygen levels others in the [...]
On Wednesday our Year 5 children had some problem solving to do on the computers. They concentrated well during these lessons and were using their ICT knowledge to logon and their problem solving techniques to answer some tricky questions. Well done Year 5!
On Wednesday 11th October, some of Year 3 were introduced to money by our Acting Deputy Head, Mr Cook. He talked with the children about the difference between pounds(£) and pennies.

They were provided with three cups each made of different materials (cardboard, plastic and polystyrene) and were asked to predict which material would keep the soup warm for longer and therefore provide better insulation. [...]
