This morning Pre-school had an exciting time predicting what would happen in a variety of science experiments, which are highlighted below:

 Flowers in vases. We filled 6 vases with water and then added white flowers. We then coloured the water and the children talked about what might happen.

Skittles experiment. We placed some Skittles in a circular pattern on a white tray. We then added some water and watched what happened.
The Skittles made a beautiful rainbow pattern.

To celebrate British Science Week, pupils have taken part in a Space themed Science day.

They were lucky enough to have a visit from the Wonderdome – an inflatable planetarium set up in the Priory Hall. Children from Pre-School right up to Years 7 and 8 each had a turn inside the Wonderdome where the instructor Ben, took them on a guided tour of the solar system.

Pre-school enjoyed celebrating Pancake day and learning all about the importance of Shrove Tuesday in the Catholic calendar. They worked as a team to make a batter and then watched carefully as Miss Louise cooked them on the crepe machine. The children then enjoyed decorating them with their favourite fruits; they went down very well!

Mrs Hawkins kindly came in to share her experiences of the Islam faith with Primary 5 last week. The children learnt so much from it, in keeping with their Early Islamic Civilisation topic. The children asked some very thought provoking questions about modern Muslim life compared to that of the past.
