In our science lessons on Electricity, we have investigated a range of circuits,using bulbs, buzzers, motors and switches. This week, we made a clown’s face complete with a flashing red nose and a spinning bow tie. We loved it!

Pedrevan class were so fortunate this week to have a very special visitor! To help us to better understand the contribution of the brave young men who fought in the Second World War, we listened to the amazing Harry Billinge recalling his memories of his time serving in France. The children were mesmerised and so interested in the emotional stories he told of his time there.
Remember to log on to Activelearn and Purplemash where there are lots of games to reinforce the topics we have been covering in class.

We have had an amazing day at Brannel today! We made key rings in the D.T room, aeroplanes that flew using tubes of air, watched the rocket cars, rolled paper structures and made bread in the Catering Suite. Some of the children’s ideas and creativity was just fantastic and we are sure that this will help to make the transition to Brannel in July much smoother!
