By dressing up as Zero Heroes for our Harvest Liturgy, we continue in our Mission and our encounter with God. We raised money for CAFOD, donated food and toiletries for the Oakham Food Bank, and continued to raise the profile of the importance of our climate emergency. This is all of year 4 and 5 together.
Magna science trip
Key Stage 2 enjoyed learning about Earth, Air, Fire and Water on their trip to magna science park. During our SOUND workshop, we learnt how sound travels, what makes sound and we made our own instruments.

BBC Weather Presenters!
We were visited by the team from BBC weather, Alex and Eddie, and all the children had the opportunity to either read the news or direct or present the weather. They learnt about the science behind meteorology. Back in the classroom, we wrote weather reports from climate zones around the world.
Please make sure you have a drinks bottle and PE kit in school at all times.
