Hello to our wonderful families!
Year 1 has been very busy learning in our classrooms over the last couple of months.
We finished off our Science Unit about Chemical Changes. It was great doing experiments each week as we researched how materials change when heated or cooled.
During English activities we have been focussing on long vowel sounds and digraphs when learning about phonics and spelling. We have also been using our creative thinking when writing, using our daily writing prompts.

Year 6 have been exploring micro-organisms in Science this Term. The cohort experienced an underwater themed escape room in the High School Science laboratories where they had to crack the codes and find the Colossal Squid.
They have also been conducting their own experiments where they had to gather data and evidence that supports their aim of finding what conditions are needed for mould spores to flourish.
In English and Geography the students are investigating different countries in Asia and creating interesting and comparative information reports. Students have used their technology skills to present their findings in a website or Google Slides.
Despite all the challenges of the year, the students have shown resilience and growth in their learning. We can’t wait to see what they can do next!
