Use of planners

Planners should be checked daily for notes from school and any notes for teachers, including collection arrangements, should be noted in the planner. Reading (including book title and chapter or page numbers) should be recorded at least 3 times a week in planners and initialled by parents. Planners need to be signed by parents at the end of each week ready for the teacher’s signature on Monday morning. Pupils must take responsibility for ensuring this happens every week.

What is going on in Quail class?

On Tuesday 13th November, we had our WOW day where we learnt more about space. We carried out a few experiments that showed us how you need to build up pressure to send a rocket into space, burning hydrogen and oxygen to make water, and what happens to your body if you don't wear a space suit using marshmallows in syringes. We were also able to try on some real space suits worn by astronauts and hold rocks that were millions of years old.

This half term we have been continuing our topic of the Vikings. In Forest School we were making Viking longboats, longhouses and Viking pictures.
