We are really looking forward to looking at all the signs of Spring as we start our Growing Plants unit with Mrs Ford.  Don't forget that the learning log for this is due in on Friday 17th May.  We are hoping for some fine weather on 21st May as we are going to the garden centre to look at how they grow plants - if you are free then please feel free to join us.

We have started our geography topic about our local area.  orienteering around school was really good fun!

Autumn News


We had an amazing day at Eureka in Halifax.  We went on the train which was a great adventure!  We learned all about our bodies and how they work and then went into the music and sound galleries.  We even had time for a spot of shopping in M&S whilst we had our cars fixed in the garage!
