AUTUMN TERM 2

Mad Science!

 Today we had a visit from Naomi, a mad scientist!

She took us on a mission to Mars - exploring how we could steer a rocket and orbit the planet with some fun experiments along the way.

If enough children are interested in taking part, Naomi will also be running an after-school Mad Science club, starting in January.

AUTUMN TERM 1

First Holy Communion

Over the last three weeks the children in Year 4 have received the Sacrament of First Holy Communion.  They have been in the prayers of all of our parish community and continue to be so as they enter into the next stage of the faith journey. 
This afternoon, to celebrate, they had a lovely party in school with all of their friends.  They danced, chatted and ate lots of party food - we are so proud of all of them!
