Activities include creating tunnels, time capsules, perfume,keeping a nature log and mummifying an orange, there’s something for everyone. Children will be taking part in some of these activities in school but they can also do them at home with parents. british science week
Children will also be learning ‘An Amazing Science Fact a Day’. They will be discussing these facts and will be writing up all about their favourite one. Tell your child as many amazing science facts as you can, and let’s find our next budding scientist!
Although school is closed on Monday 3rd June, we will be opening up for Family Portraiture Day. We have arranged for Whitebox photography to come in to school and parents can book an appointment to have a family portrait photograph taken. You can bring your whole family or just the children, it is a private session and you will need to book a time, once the booking system is open. We understand the cost will be discounted to £35, you will not need to choose which photograph(s) you prefer as you will receive a full set of 50 images on CD copyright free. Once we have further information and you are able to book a time slot we will send a letter home with your child. We do expect the day to get booked up very quickly so please try to book as early as possible.
Friday 15th March, children can come to school in their own clothes, if they wish to do so for a small donation. This is not compulsory, children can still wear their school uniform. From Monday red noses will go on general sale at the school office. If any child has already purchased one they can now purchase an additional one for siblings/parents. Red noses are priced at £1.25, please bring the correct money as no change will be given but will be donated to Comic Relief. Buckets will be on the playground next Friday for donations. Thank you
