In October, Space Odyssey Planetarium came to school to help the Year 5 children learn more about space. The children loved learning within the dome and said the experience was really interesting.
Year 6 learnt a great deal about extinct creatures and their fossils at Lyme Regis in September. They were able to explore exhibits from the museum and then accompany Chris, a fossil expert on a fossil-finding adventure! The vast majority of the children and adults came home having found one even though we'd been warned that it would be unlikely!
In the spring term of Year 3, we visited Kents Cavern as part of our science topics learning about Rocks and Soils and Light and Shadows. Children explored a cave network that dates back thousands, if not millions, of years - at one point, the lights go out and we were all in pitch-black darkness!
Wonderful formations of limestone stalactites, stalagmites and other interesting shapes were explained by the well-informed guide and for children it is often the highlight of their year.
