Polar Explorer day

We had a whole school assembly, learning about life in Antarctica. After that, we went back into class and paired up with a buddy. We had to create a diver and get him to float in the water. Once we had achieved that, we were given the challenge of making our diver float and sink in a bottle. We also learn about submarines and had to present our findings.

Jewish Heritage Centre Visit

Fountains had a wonderful time learning all about Judaism when they visited the Jewish Heritage Centre for Children. They discovered all about Kosher food in the 'Kosher Kitchen', learnt about Jewish artefacts in the synagogue and explored what life was like for Jews in the 'shtetl', a recreated 19th century Eastern European rural village. A huge thank you to all the grown ups who helped on the visit!
