Learn the science behind roller coasters, design you own theme park and discover the secrets of the real Greatest Showman.

Become the creator of the scariest fairground ride in the world, looking a pulleys, cams, pendulums and protypes, before building your own death-defying drop. Make a working model and test it out with uncooked eggs. Cracking Stuff.

P.E

USA P.E days are Tuesday and Wednesday.

Children need to have a P.E kit, which is suitable for outdoors this includes appropriate footwear.

Children with long hair need to have this tied up for these lessons and earrings ideally need to be removed. If this is not possible, parent and carers will need to send in appropriate coverings.

Homework

Homework is sent out on a Friday and is due back in school on the following Wednesday, If your child needs assistance with their homework this will be offered on a Monday lunch time. This allows your child time to complete and return homework on the due date.
