We enjoyed taking part in The Battle of Hastings Tour with our tour guide Rachel. The children named parts of the castle as we walked round and were fascinated by the scale of it all! The new Birds of Prey show proved to be a hit with all the children. 2CR standing outside the Great Hall. Climbing the steps to
Last week saw the final session of Fizzpop Science club. Both groups, Key Stage 1 and 2, hosted their ‘Fizzpop Graduation ceremonies’, where each child was given a certificate and gift (UV invisible ink pens) to celebrate their successful completion of the course. They were also quizzed, in teams, to check what they had learned in the previous four sessions
This week our younger children became detectives and looked at some forensic techniques. Our older children identified when chemical changes take place, using slime, hydrogen and Ph scales.
This week, our younger children explored chemical reactions (using Ph scales) and then made their own pot of slime! Our older children tested conditions in which an alien could survive, by monitoring chemical reactions. More fun was had by all!
This week, our younger children tested different planet samples (yeast and sand) and discovered ‘alien’ life-forms! Our Key Stage 2 children tested their problem-solving skills by using the force of gravity to help construct working marble runs and bounce pads.
Our new science club, Fizzpop Science, began last week for children in Years 1-6. The older children learned forensic techniques, taking on the role of a police detective. Our younger children tested Isaac Newton’s Law of Motion, using marbles, tracks and bounce pads. They all had a great time after school.
In Year 2 we found ourselves in a sticky situation! The three Billy Goats Gruff needed to cross the bridge safely, so we worked in teams to plan and build bridges using just spaghetti and marshmallows! This was a really tricky task!

All the EYFS and KS1 World Book Day Activities were based on the story ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers. The teachers all
