Primary
A message from the primary head
Another wonderful project planned and run last Wednesday with the cycle 2 Science Morning for students from CP, CE1 and CE2. They completed challenges experimenting with air, mixed liquids, observed the different states of matter, created spinning tops, discovered and manipulated mechanical objects and learnt about the lifecycle of the frog (from observing tadpoles)!

In small groups, all morning long, the students moved from workshop to workshop, each one led by a different member of our teaching team. That way the students got to work with different teachers and learning assistants, which was a big part of the fun for them.

It was a really successful morning and we’re already planning the sequel. As for the CMs their Science Morning is coming in a couple of weeks!
