Roll up, roll up! You’re going on a day trip to the fair to soak up the unique sights and sounds of the fair.

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’s P.E days are Tuesday and Thursday.

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 during our morning sessions before we complete registration. This allows your child time to complete and return homework on the due date.

If you have any questions of queries throughout the term, please do not hesitate to make an appointment.
