On Friday 10th March, it was once again the Owls Class Assembly. The children read out some of their writing, and demonstrated their knowledge of Maths, Science and Geography. As always, we were very proud of all the children, and would like to thank all the parents and relatives that attended.
It was the turn of the Owls, on Friday 27th January, to share their work to parents and other children in the school. They read stories about Rama and Sita, talked about the dodgeball competition, received certificates and also shared their science work based on electricity.
It was the turn of the Owls to share their work with the Parents at Friday’s assembly. They showed some photos and explained what they had been doing in gymnastics, shared some amazing writing and showed some work which they were particularly proud of. However, the highlight of the assembly, had to be ‘Science in […]
Last week in science, the children were learning about light; about different light sources and reflection. On Friday, we were very lucky that Mr Clark was able to visit and allowed us to experiment with different lighting equipment. This included a ‘mirror ball’, lights and different coloured filters.
