Heart dissection

The Year 6 pupils had the opportunity today to watch a heart being dissected live in their classroom. As a consequence, their understanding of the heart and their vocabulary and ability to describe the circulatory system is phenomenal. They were then able to apply this knowledge to draw and label diagrams of the heart accurately.

Hooke Court

The Year 5 children arrived safely at Hooke Court yesterday and have been having a brilliant time. They have had a very muddy experience in WW1 trenches and enjoyed singing some songs from that era.

The Hooke Court staff have also commented on how well they have all eaten – the clearest plates of any school they have had!

All had a good nights sleep and are thoroughly enjoying the experience.

Wow!

Year 4 had an incredible Wow day on Friday for their Potions topic. They experimented with a range of different materials to create bath bombs and slime. They also had the opportunity to see what happened when you add dry ice to water. An interesting and enjoyable day was had by all (especially our resident Science Whizz, Mrs Southgate!).
