Summer Term 2017.


We had a wonderful trip to Magna in Sheffield earlier this term. At times, it was a little scary with all the big spaces and dim lighting but it was great fun. In a workshop, we learnt how to make a ‘goo’ using super absorbent materials. The halls, based around the four elements of earth, fire, water and air, were extremely interesting with lots of ‘hands on’ activities for the children to explore.
The children were great ambassadors of our school, behaving perfectly and showing a great deal of interest in the different areas. At the end of the day, we finished with a play in the park. Thank you to all those who volunteered to come on the trip - your support is greatly appreciated!
