Year 2 have had a terrifically sticky time in class learning about the properties of magnets.  Who would have thought that they could make their own magnets using messy, gloupy, slimy stuff.  Here are some photos of them squidging their magnetic slime and using it to attract metal.  Learning is such fun!

Harvest in Early Years saw the children get to grips with bread making and dough rolling and they went home happily with some delicious treats.  Pre-Kindergarten made hedgehog bread while Kindergarten created a storm of flour as they prepared delicious Autumn biscuits.  All the best celebrations involve food and this was no exception.
