🧐✍🏻 Family Science Projects ⭐️
Before half term, Mrs Barrett sent out a Family Science project for children to try out at home with their family members.
It was all about Light Refraction and we had some fantastic observations and drawings!
If you look carefully at some of the photos, you’ll see that something as simple as a glass of water can flip a picture back to front! It was lovely to look through all the photos and comments that were emailed in.

✨ Well done, and thank you, to the following children and grown-ups for taking part:

πŸ‘ Kelseyleigh, Lime 1
πŸ‘ Giovanni, Lilac 2
πŸ‘ Tanveer, Green 2
πŸ‘ Suhaavee, Purple 2

Every half term, another Family Science activity will be sent out. Each one uses things you can usually find around the house - nothing expensive or unusual!
If you'd like to have a go at one of them, I'd love to hear about it - all the details can be found on the Family Science letter (the next one will be out before the Christmas break πŸ™‚).

Parents and guardians of children who will start school for the first time in September 2023 are being urged to apply for places online now at www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/admissions.

The window for applications for reception class places at infant and primary schools is now open, and families have until 15 January 2023 to register their preferences.

Councillor Chris Burden, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills said: β€œThe application process is straightforward and should only take a few minutes to complete. Please note that, even if your child is in nursery provision at either primary or infant school, you will still need to apply for a reception class place for them, and please get your applications in before the deadline, as applying after this time could have a detrimental effect on your chance of securing a place at one of your preferred schools.”
