Norwich Science Festival

Year 6 went on a trip today to the Norwich Science Festival. They attended a session called, ‘Fireworks: real science or just big bangs?’ They learnt all about the job of a pyrotechnic and how science is used to make fireworks. They had a brilliant time and returned to school so excited to continue with their learning in science!

This week we had our first digital music session with Mr Porter. We use the app ‘Garage Band’ to compose a layered drum sample. If your child wants to continue their learning at home, download ‘Garage Band’!
