Moon Camp Challenge

In a future not too far from now, astronauts will have to stay for long periods on the Moon. Follow this link to help them by creating a 3D model of a research base where they can live and work to explore the lunar surface.

Mission Zero

Mission Zero offers students and young people the chance to have their computer programs run in space on the ISS! Teams write a simple program to display a message to the astronauts onboard. You don’t need special equipment or coding skills, and all participants that follow the rules are guaranteed to have their programs run in space. You will also receive a special certificate showing where exactly the ISS was when your program ran!

Let's get cooking!


Lot's of us have been cooking up a storm in the kitchen and trying new recipes. This is a great opportunity to cook together as a family and we would love it if you could share photos and videos of you using your culinary skills on out Twitter pages. Don't forget to keep yourselves safe and make sure that an adult is cooking with you.

Money Sense Monday


Monday, 18th May we will be covering Needs and wants for lower primary in the first 30 minutes and Raising money for charity in the second 30 minutes for upper primary where we will also be joined by special guest, cricketer Michael Vaughan!  
All you will need is a pen, some paper and device to watch on, and they’re all set. 
Please note: pupils do not need a Facebook or YouTube account to watch the broadcasts, however if they would like to comment their answers, we recommend they use a parent’s account to do so with appropriate supervision.  
Always remember to stay safe when on the internet and ask an adult to support you.
