Science Week

Once again, Science Week was hugely enjoyable for all the children. Our newest member of staff greeted everyone as they arrived, already prepared for our week of celebrating science!

We had tarantulas and huge snakes – the bearded dragon was particularly popular! And after watching them hatch, the baby chicks were adored by everyone. Balloons were pierced by skewers but didn’t pop and we made raisins dance! Visits to the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Butterfly Jungle at Hall Place all reinforced our learning of particular topics.

Many thanks to Fearless Reptiles and Wiggly Wildshow.
