On Friday we had a special day celebrating Armed Forces Day.  The children spent the day learning about our armed forces as part of teh national celebration.  As part of the day Mrs Plesca's brother who is a soldier came in and ran through drills with all of the classes.  Freddie's Dad also visited Year 1 to show them his kit and talk about his job in the Royal Engineers.  The children studied the Army, Navy and Air Force in different classes which was really interesting and we are planning to put together a display in the Hub soon with their work for everyone to see.  Thanks to our brilliant visitors and we look forward to sharing soem highlights in Celebration Assembly on Friday (7th July).

 

On Monday parents were also invited in as we welcomed back Jupiter Jules to lead a MAD Science assembly.  The children saw how to make elephant’s toothpaste using chemistry and the effects of air pressure and a vacuum on ‘Bert’ the balloon along with some other cool science stuff.  The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and flyers will be coming home about the opportunity to sign up for the MAD Science after school club in September.
