Meeting Dr Jane Wilson-Howarth!

On Wednesday 7th June, Sapphire Class had an afternoon treat meeting Dr Jane Wilson-Howarth, the author of Himalayan Kidnap and other stories.  She gave a presentation about animals found in the Himalayas and also read us an excerpt from her book.  On Thursday 22nd June, Dr Jane returned to class and kindly signed some copies of her book that the children had bought.  Thank you for your visit, Dr Jane - we think you're an adventurous author!

Welcome to Sapphire Class!


Summer Term

This term we are venturing into the wild a bit closer to home, getting hands-on with geography fieldwork in rivers and streams and learning about they are formed.  We will also study mountain formations and see how these physical features have affected settlements in the area.


Sapphire Class has already enjoyed a trip to Flatford Mill, Suffolk, where each member of the class was able to get stuck into to some hands-on fieldwork investigating rivers and the area surrounding the mill.  Blessed with beautiful sunshine, it was a terrific day and a brilliant introduction to our topic of 'Rivers' for the first half of this term.  Please enjoy some photographs from our visit, which are below.




Watch this space for our exciting Science investigations - coming to a kitchen near you soon!
