June 19, 2018: Creating the digestive system
What a messy afternoon in class 7. We wanted to see how the digestive system worked, and so we created our own version of it using a chocolate and banana sandwich, saliva (water), a stomach (plastic bag), stomach acid (vinegar) and intestines (tights). Harrison said it was "The best lesson ever", while Millie added "It was gross!"



June 16, 2018: Tooth Decay Eggsperiment!
This week, children in lower school carried out a fair test experiment to investigate which liquids cause the most damage to our teeth. Take a look at our pictures to see what we discovered!



June 7, 2018: Making Skeletons
Lower School have started their new topic this week and began with a fun activity hunting for bones in order to build a complete skeleton. We had a great time!



January 21, 2018: Amazing Space Poetry
Class 6 have produced some phenomenal Space poetry this week. Their imagination and creativity really shone through their writing. Well done all of you.



December 5, 2017: Light and reflection!
Today, class 7 spent the afternoon investigating how light travels. We used a torch in a very dark room to think about how light waves travel in straight lines and reflect off objects back into our eyes. Class 7 now know the difference between opaque, translucent and transparent objects. Mirrors reflect light perfectly because they are so smooth, but it isn't easy to use reflected light in a mirror to trace a pattern, as we all now know! It is even more challenging to write your name when only looking in a mirror. Give it a go if you don't believe us!



November 16, 2017: A Quick Quiz
