Year 8 Literature Quiz

Last week, a group of Year 8 children travelled to Aberdeen to take part in the Northern Scottish Schools’ Literature Quiz. They were split into two teams and competed superbly, with one team achieving a brilliant second place (missing out on the top spot by one point) and the other a very commendable fifth out of twenty teams, in a very closely-contested competition. Well done!

Year 5 Science

Year 5 have been learning all about our Solar System this term, and how our planet is constantly rotating on its axis. This week, they did a shadow experiment in Science to prove this fact. Throughout the day, the children studied the various different shadows cast by the sun and recorded the direction of the sun and the length of the shadow. They then marked the end of each shadow to show its different positions throughout the day.
