Dear Parents and Carers,

In 2015 I launched Science Café for Key Stage 1 which parents found not only very educational but also highly enjoyable.  In fact their main complaint was that more children in the school could not take part!  Having listened to this feedback, Science Café has evolved to include activities for design and technology in collaboration with our D&T leader, Miss. Shepherd and activities are suitable for all pupils from Early Years (Nursery and Reception), Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) .  This is an exciting opportunity to learn more about the Science curriculum, how it is taught at school and how you can support your child in their science learning at home using everyday equipment and objects.

Science Café will take place once a term from 3:30pm-4:30pm.  Please sign in via the school office on arrival.

The theme for the first Science Cafe will be Sound.  In each session there will be age appropriate activities for you to try out and lots of ideas to take home.  We will be using resources which are easily found at home with easy to understand explanations of the science that is taking place.

Autumn Term 1 Science and Design and Technology Cafe:         Wednesday 4th October 2017

Autumn Term 2 Science and Design and Technology Café:          Wednesday 7th December 2017         

We look forward to seeing you at a session soon. 

Yours Sincerely,


Kirsty Hurley (Science Leader) and Clare Shepherd (Design and Technology Leader)
