Science Week: Double Bubbles

This was sooooo much fun! We had to blow one bubble and then blow another one inside it!

Science Week: Tower building

The challenge was to make the tallest tower possible – although the bigger challenge was NOT to eat the marshmallows!!!

Science Week: Invisible Ink

We wrote secret messages in lemon juice and then made them reappear with an iron! It was awesome!

Science Week – Balloon Cars

Jungle Cave

Our food was lovely!

More Sightseeing…

Here are some more pictures from our sightseeing walk. We were really pleased all of the Coronation decorations are still up.


What a perfect evening for sightseeing! The Royal Standard was flying at Buckingham Palace so we know the King was in… he didn’t come out to say hello, though!

We have Arrived!

We arrived bang on time. We’ve checked into our rooms and are just having a snack ready to go out again to explore…

Lunch at Membury

We’ve had a really good jouney so far. We opted for a late lunch at Membury services as our evening meal is so late tonight. The weather will be perfect for a walking sightseeing tour later on. #excited

Taunton Deane

Just stopped at Taunton Deane for a break. Aiming to go on to Membury now for lunch 😊

Science Week – Rubber Band Investigations

We experimented with sound using different sized boxes and different sized elastic bands. We each predicted “Will different sized elastic bands make different sounds when plucked?” We found out that not every elastic band sounded the same on each box and every box sounded different too.

String telephones

Today we made string telephones. The tighter the string the more you could hear the other person.

Double bubble and more

  In science, we created a model volcano and caused an eruption. We investigated how when the baking powder was mixed with the vinegar it caused a chemical reaction and the mixture poured from the volcano. We then returned to the classroom to experiment with creating the tallest bubble, bubbles making the outline of Mickey […]

Newsletter: 19th May 2023

Singing Festivals We were delighted to see the return fo the Bideford Schools Singing Festivals this week after the break forced on us by the Pandemic. We had a new venue and a new format, both of which proved a huge success for the children, and hopefully the audience too. The Key Stage 1 Festival […]


Today Goldworthy were amazing they helped move some woodchip that we got delivered into our forest school area. They will  be getting s’mores for their first session next half term! They had fun transforming the area and they can’t wait for the next of our on going forest school area project.

Pan flutes

We made pan flutes to see whether different length straws made different sounds.

Elastic bands making sounds

Todays experiment found us testing elastic bands to see if they made different sounds. We stretch different thicknesses of elastic band over a box and watched to see if it vibrated by using a magnifying glass. We predicted that the thicker band would make a lower pitched sound and it did. The thinner band vibrated […]

What was Clovelly like?

In Burscott this afternoon, we explored what it would have been like in Clovelly hundreds of years ago. We did some research and found that fishing and boat building were a huge part of village life. They also traded limestone and Welsh coal. We decided to re-enact what it would have been like by building […]

Ruler hit

Today we experimented with a ruler. We flicked to hear the sounds it made through vibrations. The shorter the ruler the higher the pitch. The longer the rulers the lower the pitch.
