Big Bang Science Fair – Last week a group of children from Year 5 and Year 6 attended the Science Fair held at the Excel Arena in East London.  The children enjoyed:


  1. The journey through London seeing the sights including various bridges along the Victoria Embankment and the Tower of London.
  2. The huge exhibition hall of Science and Engineering stands.

Our children talked to staff from various companies and universities:

     –  staff from the Bloodhound SSC team involved in the World Land Speed Record attempt.

     –  University of Leicester fossil finding

     – Two shows, one of amazing ‘visual’ experiments involving light and another about deep space, from   
        the University of Plymouth.

It was extremely busy but well worthwhile.

Lost Property – Our lost property box is quite full at present so if your child/children have lost anything, especially gloves and hats, then please ask in the school office.  We will dispose of anything left at the end of term.  Can I also remind everyone that all items of clothing should be clearly named so that it does not end up in the lost property box.
