We have had a very busy first half term! Our last week of the half term mainly focused on science activities. We were investigators who made predictions, carried out a range of tests and drew scientific conclusions.

We also created amazing firework pictures.


I would like to say how proud I am of our new starters who have successfully  completed their first half term in school. I wish everyone a very happy half term holiday!🙂
