The school runs various events throughout the year – here are a few highlights of recent events
STEM Week October 2018
In October we had a deep learning week – STEM (Science, technology, engineering and maths). Our oldest children visited the BT research facility at Martlesham Health were they learned to program robots. Oak Class worked on inventing a time machine making a battery using soil power! Elm Class designed prototypes them made chairs from plastic milk bottles. Our youngest children focused on colour – doing some chromatography and colour mixing.
All classes had the opportunity to get involved with kitchen chemistry and rocket building. We shared our learning with our parents at the end of the week.

French Trip October 2018
Our children were made very welcome in France, being invited to lunch with the mayor and sharing a lovely supper prepared by the families. It is a great experience and brilliant opportunity to practise their French speaking skills as well as working on their self confidence, general communication and independence. See our French Twin page for pictures.
