Combining Science and Design and Technology this week, Ladybird class (and Others) enjoyed eating Pringles in order to provide each child with a tube to design their own lighthouse.  In Science, as part of the electricity topic, they built circuits to ensure that the lighthouse was fully functioning.

After spending more than a century at The Natural History Museum in London surrounded by many fossil marine reptiles from the Jurassic Coast, Dippy has been visiting The Dorset County Museum on his tour.  We were lucky enough to be able to visit this amazing exhibition.  
Did you know: 
Dippy measures 21.3m in length, and 4m in both height and width, squeezing into the Victorian gallery with cms to spare!
Dippy has 292 bones which had to be painstakingly assembled in the correct order!

In Science, Ladybird Class have been learning about States of Matter.  They have been using their maths skills to measure out ingredients and science knowledge about solids and liquids.  The end result was Cornflake cakes to sell at the Easter Service in aid of Stand Up to Cancer.  Thank you to the boys who volunteered to wash up!

Excellent effort today Ladybirds. We loved your ideas for dressing up and sharing your books on World Book Day today. (1st March 2018) A fun day, made all the more special by tumbling snowflakes.

Ladybird class had a great trip to Haynes Motor Museum on Wednesday 17th January - it was a very informative day and everyone got a chance to sit in a variety of cars.

Ladybird class had a great learning experience at The Tutankhamun Exhibition and the Roman Town House in Dorchester on Thursday 29th September, they also found time to have some fun in the park!

In our Science practical, Ladybird class discover the journey our food takes when it enters our digestive system.

Ladybird class have enjoyed visiting our library and finding books to research our ancient Greece topic. The children worked well together and shared their findings at the end of the lesson.
