Astronomy Club 

What is astronomy?

Astronomy is the study of everything in the universe beyond Earth’s atmosphere. That includes objects we can see with our naked eyes, like the Sun , the Moon , the planets, and the stars . It also includes objects we can only see with telescopes or other instruments, like faraway galaxies and tiny particles. And it even includes questions about things we can't see at all, like dark matter and dark energy .

Winged Creatures

The Chroma Ensemble gave pupils a Winged Creatures theme for music and song-learning. The group talked the children through the types of instruments used and related this to the scientific theme of 'Sound'.

Spring 2. Sensational Science. What a blast! Year 3 went to Norwich School and worked in a laboratory focusing on physics and discovering how it is possible to launch a rocket using a variety of techniques.

Sensational Science.

Silver and bronze awards achieved for reduction of single use plastics.

We are the first school to receive awards for the reduction of single use plastics.

Bignold Science Ambassadors have received bronze and silver awards for reducing the use of single - use plastic across the school.

£150.00 grant secured, with thanks to NCC, in January 2022. This money will help us to buy containers for use around the school and within classrooms to collect recycled pens and glue sticks. These items have previously been sent to landfill. Now, we'll be able to recycle even more single use plastics.
