Rand farm trip!


Amethyst class visited the local care home to sing Christmas carols to the residents there. We all had a lovely time, and were given some yummy snacks as a thank you!

Today we invited families in to take part in a Christmas craft morning. Thank you to everyone who attended. We had a lot of fun creating our Christmas crafts.

Amethyst trip to Magna Science centre

As part of our Science topic learning all about solids, liquids and gases, Amethyst class visited Magna Science adventure centre today. They took part in a workshop creating their own oil paint and invesigating different reactions, and then explored the different activities in the earth, air, water and fire areas! 


Roman formations!

Today we launched our new topic 'What did the Romans do for us?' by looking at the Roman army. We made our own symmetrical shields, then practiced being in the army by marching and recreating the different formations that the Romans used, including the orb, the tortoise and the wedge!
