As part of their science learning Years 1 and 2 visited Wildwood. They learnt a lot about mini beasts and woodland animals. 

Year 6 enjoyed a visit to Belmont House where they learnt about different birds of prey. 

Making models of blood

Year 6 have been making models of blood to help them understand how blood is made up. They used water and yellow food colouring to represent the plasma, salt to represent the chemicals and minerals in the plasma, red food colouring to represent the haemoglobin, cheerios to represent the red blood cells, mini white marshmallows to represent the white blood cells and raisins to represent the platelets.

Science Club made Newton's Discs and they noticed that when they spun quickly, all the colours looked grey or white. They also had fun making helicopter spinners which they launched in the hall.

After School Science Club
Our budding scientists enjoyed exploring space during this weeks Science Club. They had to work out how to make their balloon spaceships fly! Thank you to Mrs Kelleher for running this amazing club after school, everyone had so much fun!


On Monday 9th January, Ethelbert Road attended an F1 day at the Q.E. The children learnt about race car design and were then given the opportunity to design and build their own cars. They were able to test their aerodynamics in a special air tunnel. In the afternoon, the children raced their cars. Congratulations to all the winners!

On Sunday 26th June, six Year5 pupils represented their year group and school at the Young Eco Engineers, MEBP, green goblin go-Kart competition in Gillingham. The pupils raced their go-kart against 14 other cars in a number of heats. The children, parents and staff had a wonderful day.


All of year 5 were involved in designing the bodywork and build of the electric car. At the event Year 5 won best workbook. The workbook documents the team's progress throughout the project - the build and investigations to understand the technology and engineering of the go-kart.


Well done Year 5 and congratulations on winning the workbook award a reflection of all your hard work. 

Year 5 had a fantastic day making and racing F1 cars with some sixth form students and Mr Harvey at QEFG Faversham. It was such a fun and engaging day.
