UCLan Science Festival

On the 30th June Class 3 and class 4 visited the University of Central Lancashire to take part in a series of interactive workshops and lectures.

Class 4 learnt about how sounds are made and how we hear these sounds; how the brain works and some intriguing facts about marine creatures.

Class 3 Took part in a minibeast workshop, attended a lecture on the effects of pressure and took part in some brain games.

‘this was an exciting and fun day, I never knew just how important science is in our world.

My favourite part was meeting the Heavy metal marine biologist and getting his autograph.’ Joe.

Stone Age Day

In Class 3, we have been enjoying learning about the Stone Age. This week, we turned our classroom into an Axe factory to rival Langdale!
We made string out of bullrush leaves and we cooked damper bread over the fire. We would like to say a great big ‘Thank-you,’ to Ro Thomas from ‘Woodmatters’, who helped us have this fantastic experience.

A visit from Cruella

This morning we found beautiful little visitor trying to join our school, she was climbing the front steps, we can only assume she wanted to join in with Class 3’s creative writing!

Class 3 were fascinated and google tells us she is a White Ermine Moth, isn’t she beautiful!?

Leighton Moss

We all went on a trip to Leighton Moss, to discover more habitats, one of our class fed a Robin from her hand. We had a great day.

Derwentwater Residential

Class 3 had a wonderful time on our residential trip in March, working on our topic of ‘Habitats’.

Great fun, great food and a fantastic time with our friends, all with a bit of learning thrown in! We even got to see the Osprey!
