Year 5 had a wonderful trip to the Intech Science Centre yesterday, including a trip into the planetarium, as part of their ‘Stargazers’ topic.
Two of our Year 3 classes had a memorable trip to the Air Museum this morning as part of their ‘Mighty Metals’ topic. They came back beaming about their experiences, which included sitting in the pilot’s seat in several aircraft.
Year 3 are visiting Avon Heath Country Park this week in order to investigate nature, with a particular emphasis on digestion. Today a wide variety of wildlife was viewed, including lizards, butterflies and insects.
Year 6 have the pleasure today of dissecting owl pellets in order to investigate the diet of owls. Many thanks to the Liberty Owl Centre for donating the pellets to us.
