Thank you to Miss Kavanagh for kindly taking some of the class up to our beautiful pond and garden area last week. So lovely to enjoy some outside learning.  smiley Mrs Southon.

Today ( 21st May ) we started our new topic in Science. We will be learning about Plants.


During our science lesson we took turns planting seeds in a little plant pot. The children will take these home and are welcome to bring them back to class to show us if they have grown!  We had a mixture of Sweet Pea and Sunflower seeds. Water them and put in the sun! Good Luck. Enjoy the photos. Mrs Southon smiley

Today (14th February) some of the class went out to measure various objects. First we used cubes to measure then rulers. Finally we made the most of the lovely weather and used metre sticks to measure our playground.  Well done to all 8 children, what a super lesson we had! Mrs Southon.  smiley


We had so much fun today (17th January) in our science lesson. We had to predict and find out which material made the best crash mat for an egg to land on.

We had 6 materials to test:  Paper, Fabric, Stones, Plastic, Sand and Water.

Mr Langford visited during our lesson and predicted that Stones would be the best material. We weren't convinced so carried out the experiment (see the lovely photos!)

We proved that Mr Langford was wrong! Fabric was the best material for a crash mat.

Enjoy the photos. Mrs Southon smiley
