Today Prep 2 have been experimenting with equipment to enable them to make circuits to light up bulbs, make buzzers and work a fan. They successfully worked out how to do all of these things. Great fun was had by everyone! A lovely Science lesson to end the term.
Nursery and Prep Reception had an end of term treat. We went out and explored our Woodland area, made a wood medallion, searched for wood, learnt how to light a fire and even got the chance to roast marshmallows…….delicious!
This week we have been investigating the weight of different objects in our Maths lessons. Today we went on a journey around the school to find things that were ‘heavy’ or ‘light.’ The boys were very excited to find out that a big leaf was heavier than a stick! The investigating continues………..

Prep Reception are exploring nature to learn about Maths, Prep 1 have been outdoors for their ICT lesson learning about algorithms and Prep 3 have had an outdoor music lesson.
