Welcome to our Blog.
Here we will share information about what the children have been learning about in science, science in the news, our links with local scientists and science days.
Space Day Friday 13th October!
The school is now involved in a national project, National Nature Park, in which we will be enhancing our school site so that it is more nature friendly. We will become part of a network of nurseries, schools and colleges that form the National Education Nature Park. There will have opportunities to work towards accompanying Climate Action Awards, led by the Royal Society, will help our children develop skills and knowledge in biodiversity and sustainability, and celebrate their climate action efforts. The project has launched this week with a Hidden Nature Challenge. Here is some hidden nature some of our children found this week on the school site!

Trout in the Classroom
Year 5 are learning about brown trout. We have been taking care of baby brown trout this term and will be releasing these into the local chalk stream when they are old enough. This is part of the Chiltern Chalk Stream Project to save the local chalk steam.
We are feeding the fish twice a day and cleaning the tank out and making sure they are well looked after.
RAF STEM Glider Challenge
Sycamore class took part in an online glider challenge. They worked like engineers designing, creating, testing and improving their gliders.

Some exciting news to do with Space this week!
NASA is going to smash a spacecraft into an asteroid on Tuesday 27th, and Jupiter will be at its biggest and brightest this month. It will be in opposition on Monday (26 September) which means Earth is directly in between Jupiter and the Sun.
