Static Electricity

The Junior Room have been exploring static electricity. We  charged balloons and watched as they made our hair stand on end. We also charged a plastic straw by rubbing it in a woolly hat, then watched it move! Click on the link below to see the video.

Under the Sea

The Senior Room have been working very hard on their under water scenes in Art. They have been using the book Into the Blue by Nicola Davies as inspiration.

Nim

We enjoyed playing Nim to get our brains working after the long summer holidays. It is a very simple game but requires lots of strategy. Have you figured out how to win?

Our vegetable patch has been a great success. We were delighted to harvest all our delicious vegetables on our return to school. There was enough food for everyone to bring something home. Well done to everyone for all their hard work. We would like to give a special thank you to Bridget for helping us.
