Our First Class Photograph

British Science Week

Our challenge was to make a water balloon survive a one story drop. We used our team work skills to construct a structure to protect our water balloon for when it was dropped. Here's how we got on!

Remember, remember the 5th of November!!!

We had loads of fun creating fireworks with powder paints, water and big brushes.

Linked to our topic we have been looking at fruits and vegetables that are ready for harvesting in Autumn. We picked apples from the school garden.
