Summer Term Newsletter
In October we went on a galactic adventure to Spaceport in Liverpool where we enhanced our learning about space. We had a fantastic day learning new facts and exploring space further.
We visited a primary school in Shadsworth, Blackburn where we made a lot of new friends.
We were all split into different groups, mixed in with the pupils of Shadsworth Junior school and took part in sports, science, art and ICT activities. We enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends and are very excited to invite them to our school in the Spring term.
