We are sorry to be saying goodbye to Ms Ramage today. Ms Ramage has only been with us for a short while as our schools Librarian but during her time here she has made a big impact, helping to introduce and set up the Accelerated reader programme, ran Rocket readers and transformed the Library. We do wish her well in her new role.
We would like to say a huge well done to two students who took their Piano exams recently. Both Students not only passed but with a merit. Mooi in year 6 passed her grade 3 and Amir Hossein in Year 1 passed his grade 1.

Science is fun
Frogs absorb water through their skin so they don't need to drink. Frogs can lay as many as 4,000 eggs in frogspawn. The eyes and nose of a frog are on top of its head so it can breathe and see when most of its body is under the water. Frogs have long back legs and webbed feet for jumping and swimming
Year 5 went back to the nature garden on Tuesday to see what changes had occurred with our tadpoles. We discovered more froglets and, on closer observation of the tadpoles, spots had appeared! Some tadpoles were definitely larger than they were during our first visit. Perhaps we will see fins and stronger tails on the froglets soon! Let's see what life cycles stage we observe next week!
Benjamin Zephniah Class will keep you posted!
