In French, our younger linguists in the Pre-Prep have been learning about colours, numbers, pets and ages using songs to help embed their language knowledge. Bravo! We hope they are entertaining their parents on the journey home.

Our senior scientists have been looking at plant cells and were tasked with creating a 3D model as prep. The photos below show how successful this was with models being made in many mediums, including cake! Well done Year 7.

In Geography our intrepid Year 4 have been to learn about the features of a river at the Cuckmere valley. For more please click here

Year 5 have completed some amazing science prep on their topic of Space.  These are displayed in the De Beer corridor and outside Mrs Gearey’s room.  Please come and see it if you have a moment to spare as they have put a lot of effort into it.  Mr Powis thinks it’s amazing and a big thank you to Mrs Walker who displayed it so cleverly.
