Our pupils in KS1 were invited to receive the Count and Countess of Wessex, Edward and Sophie. It was delightful to welcome them to Preston Market and to Miller Park. The Royal couple were very generous with their time and they were attentive in talking to the children. We were very grateful for the opportunity to be present at the celebration of the 20th year of the 2002 Jubilee at which Preston was named as a city. Children were given flags and goody bags containing a drink and a snack. They were very welcoming of our special visitors and the sun shone for us on the day.

The National Trust took the Year 1/2 class into the environmental area for an art lesson on the artist Monet. Children looked at one of Monet's paintings 'Water Lillies'. They then explored the environmental area pond and looked at similarities. Children used Monet's painting for inspiration and used pigments from leaves and flowers to create their own art using nature.

This term Year 4 are learning about the Ancient Egyptians. We learnt about mummification and decided to try it with a tomato. In groups, we had 2 pieces of tomato. We scooped out the seeds and juice and pretended it was like the organs. Then we put one piece in a cup and covered it with baking soda and salt (pretending it was natron just like the Egyptians). We put the other piece in a cup with nothing. We are going to check on it in a few weeks time and see if the salt and baking powder helped preserve the tomato just like a real mummy.

In Year 6, we visited UCLAN to learn more about electricity as young scientists. We learned how electricity worked, how to create functioning circuits and how they are written down universally. We also solved problems which demonstrated our understanding of electricity - as well as having some fun with static electricity and a Van der Graff generator!

Today 5D went to UCLAN and visited the Young Science Centre to take part in some "Electrifying Experiments". We had great fun and learnt all about where our electricity comes from, how to build different circuits ad how the voltage can affect different components. We took part in some team challenges and even made people's hair stand on end!
