Visit to Blackford Hill

As part of our focus on Health & Wellbeing, G2 have been exploring different ways to support our mental and physical health. We took advantage of the autumn sun and set ourselves the challenge of climbing Blackford Hill. We had a great view from the top and we all felt good getting some exercise and fresh air.

Science in Action

G1 headed out yesterday to Gracemount Mansion to design an insulated nest for a dormouse using natural materials. The group had to think creatively,  work together as a team and use their scientific knowledge to be successful.

Primary Camp

Class Kestrels and Eagles had a great time at Calvert Trust in January. Have a look at our video to see all the amazing activities we took part in.

Eagles’ Cloud Experiment

Today Eagles made a very interesting experiment! We created a cloud in a jar!

Eagles learned that you need three things to make clouds-moist, warm air; coolness; and tiny particles in the air that make vapour condense. We used hairspray to provide these particles. How clever was that?

At the end of the experiment, we all agreed it was a super cool one!
