Reading Partners
 
This morning we were joined by a group of year 13 students from John Port School in Etwall.

We are waiting for the day when the students return to share more learning and stories.

Testing Air Raid Shelters
 
This afternoon Robins were challenged to design, construct and test a model Air Raid Shelter. It had to be big enough to protect a Lego 'man' from falling 'bombs'. The children were asked to explain their construction and then watch as it was tested. Most of the shelters survived the experience.
 
Well done everyone!
