Despite the inclement weather, Open Gardens was well attended, and freshly baked scones and clotted cream, were consumed heartily. The consensus of opinion was that our Academy grounds were lovely, and our staff were friendly, kind and considerate!
On Monday, a visiting scientist held work shops on the themes of "Bubbles" and "Rockets." Tuesday's after school science club continues to be well attended, and the children enjoyed practical tasks and games.
Wednesday was a busy day for Badgers Class, as they went swimming in the morning and singing in the afternoon, at the Grove Theatre.
There was music in Hamsters as well, as they having been learning about Africa, listening to African music and drumming and reading the book Handa's Surprise.
Hedgehogs have been collecting hundreds of bottles for their eco-friendly shelter, which will be shared with all. They even made a striking collage from the bottle labels!
Otters have been growing seeds. Squirrels have been investigating how to make light boxes and solve the problem of how to make an electrical circuit, so that a seaside lighthouse could have a warning flashing light... we have some electricians "in the making!"
Rabbits have been astronauts and travelled round the Solar System in their originally designed rockets.
