Friday - our final 'Activity Week' day! We created geocaches and hid them around the school - there were prizes and more importantly points to be won!! We had balloon rocket races and to finish off our week we roasted marshmallows to make s'mores and had fruit kebabs.. YUM!!

Wednesday - Super Lava Science! We built our own volcanoes and created lava, had another go at crossing the lava with tyres and planks and made lava lamps.

Tuesday! Forever blowing bubbles! We tried making giant bubbles today, it didn't go quite to plan but we still had lots of fun!! We also completed an orienteering course around the school and a Lego 'observation' challenge. Another great day!!

Monday - Yr6 at school group! Today we have made marshmallow towers using spaghetti, completed an A-Z scavenger hunt, played 'toxic waste' and then crossed a floor of lava. We have used amazing team work skills today!
