This half term we have completed two Science investigations. Here are some photos of the fun we have had! One investigation focused on how animals have a layer of blubber to insulate them. The other demonstrated how birds have different beaks designed to pick up food easily.

Welcome Back!

Hi 6EA, welcome back! Here is a photo of our anti bullying charter. Can you remember a ‘right’ that you have? You all have rights e.g to education but you also have a responsibility to respect the rights of others e.g to support others with their learning and not to disturb them! How can we respect other people’s rights at school? Comment with ideas!
