Elizabeth, year 1 recreated an experiment we conducted last week to try and grow a rainbow at home! Elizabeth was able to remember what we had done and then was able to write a brilliant set of instructions to explain how to grow a rainbow! We think this is excellent work and a fun art/science mash up! Have a go at growing your own!
Pupils are still busy working at home.

In this workshop we built a Geo-dome to experience immersive theatre. Everyone had a turn sitting in the middle of the dome whilst the rest of the group moved around them with finger lights. Everyone involved had a great time and were able to perform in a safe and caring environment. Many thanks to Olivia, Sacha and Jasmine.
