Seasonal Change in our Community

Today we had a lovely walk up to Rathmichael Church. We saw lots of evidence of Winter along the way – trees losing their leaves, berries for the animals, brown fields and evergreen trees. The children were all so well behaved and greeted all our neighbours as they past! We even managed to get a few beeps from the motorway!

Science Week: 11th – 15th November

We finished Science Week with some STEM play. The pods all worked so well together to construct great structures.

Today’s experiment was about how sedimentary rocks are formed. We used pressure/friction to melt chocolate and form chocolate rocks. We had to sample our creation at the end of course!!

Wow! Today we had so much fun doing our science experiment. We were studying liquid density and whether oil and water mix. The class made their own fireworks in a glass!!

This week we are spending extra time learning about science. Today we did a magic potion experiment. Try it at home with a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda, some food colouring and a tablespoon of vinegar.

Friday 6th November

We have had a great start back after our week off. Everyone worked so hard all week so well done! We started our Daily Mile challenge. We will be running every day in November.
