During STEM week, Early Years have been learning all about floating and sinking. The children first planned and designed their boats. We then tested the boats, predicting if they would sink or float. Finally we evaluated which materials floated and which which materials sank.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service

An interactive, immersive and educational visit enjoyed by Year 5&6.
The children gained some life changing experiences and knowledge during their visit to the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service training centre. All pupils were successful in completing the “Visit that could save a life” course. Well done Year 5&6.

Harvest in EYFS

In Early Years we discussed harvest and how Autumn is the season of harvest. The children have made Autumn wreathes, choosing their autumnal objects and using cutting and sticking skills. We discussed the purpose of scarecrows, the children coloured and cut the scarecrows, then turned them into Dingly Dangle scarecrows using split pins. We used our scarecrows to move, during our Dingle Dangle scarecrow song.
