We will continue to work hard to get the best improvement out of the children and to make the year as enjoyable as we can.  As parents/guardians it would be of great benefit to aid us in this by getting the children to read for 20 minutes each evening and to sign their diaries to say they have done so.  We expect the pupils to write into their diaries what book they have read along with what pages and parents/guardians to just initial.


Blue Abyss

Grab your wet-suit! We’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures.

Head to your local aquarium and learn about life in the ocean. Can you pick a favourite fish, plant or animal?

What do real divers get up to below the surface? Create a fishy story about exploring an amazing underwater world.

Time to go a little deeper into our seas. Make a model deep-sea submarine that can withstand great pressure and travel to the deepest and darkest places on Earth. Make sure you test it first.

What are those bright lights in the distance? It’s a group of bioilluminescent sea creatures! Look closely and create a colourful, 3-D art exhibition when you rise to the surface.

Flippers on? Snorkel ready? Let’s head into the Blue Abyss…….
