A Poet Comes to Visit!

A big thank you to Jane Clarke, a poet of national acclaim, who visited our school on the 22nd of June! She shared some of her beautiful poetry with us, as did the children 🙂 The children had the opportunity to ask Jane questions about her poems and also participated in a poetry-writing workshop, much to their enjoyment! What a lovely experience 🙂

Chain Reactions

The children had great fun putting this chain together. One by one, they put the lollipop sticks in place! A lot of teamwork and cooperation was involved! In this activity, the children observed the build up of potential energy, which was consequently converted to kinetic energy when the chain was released!

The Fruits of Procedure Writing!

The senior classes were given the task of making jelly and/or a dessert which used jelly as an ingredient. The wrote up the procedure they used to rustle up these delicious dishes at home. We have quite a few budding chefs in our midst! 🙂


We have achieved our Discover Science and Maths Award!!! Our Plaque of STEM Excellence will be sent to our school in June!!! Well to the staff, pupils and parents for all their hard work!!!
