In science this week the year 5s and 6s have been discussing the different factors which may affect the rate in which ice melts. In their groups they planned and carried out different investigations and recorded their results.
Thank you to all of the parents who turned up and supported our fundraiser. We raised enough money to buy an acre of rainforest! This will help to prevent some of the problems caused by deforestation.
Last week the Junior children met at Rowsley school for an informative morning centered around e-safety. The children spent their morning watching a theater production. Three actors cleverly used the idea of entering the woods and meeting various creatures as a metaphor to get their message across. After sitting and watching intently, the children then engaged with an interactive workshop. It was pleasing to see them displaying great knowledge and understanding of the importance of keeping safe whilst using the internet and an awareness of what to do to keep safe.
We then enjoyed a lovely walk back up the hill - just in time for lunch!
