We all had a wonderful time on Thursday during science day. The children were able to experience lots of different experiments and had great fun. Year five looked at how skittles react with warm water, tried to make slime but it was not very successful - better luck next time. We also completed the Mentos & cola/lemonade experiment - we found that the diet cola and lemonade were the most successful.

Year 5 had a fantastic day on Friday at the Science Museum. We were very busy and visited most of the exhibitions at the Museum. We especially enjoyed the Wonder Lab. The children were extremely well behaved especially on the bus back when we got stuck in traffic!

Some children went to take part in Braintree's Eco-Event
The students had to create a planet saving idea as part of the event. They had the idea to create flowers that would hold sugar water as a way to help the bee population around our school. They presented their idea alongside 9 other schools at the event. We were awarded £150 and won a lovely book all about bees.

Reception recently had the pleasure of visiting a charming farm in White Notley - Gemma's Farm. This was a delightful experience, thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Here are some of the children as they boarded one of the minibuses that took us to our destination. We were very excited!
The farm is not only home to the animals you would normally expect to see on a farm, like pigs and chickens but also some more exotic animals in need of a home like meercats and even a porcupine!
On our arrival the children lined up to have their buckets filled with feed for the animals and it was then their job to make sure no animals went hungry. There were also jobs like watering and egg collecting before being able to get up close and personal with the recently born animals like chicks, lambs and rabbits. 
The weather was kind to us, and all children behaved respectfully whilst meeting and then taking care of the animals  - a truly unforgettable day - Well done Reception team and Thankyou to Gemma's Farm - we hope to return!
