We have had even more parents coming to have their picture taken inside Lord Ransom's Castle. Amazingly the idea has ballooned and many visitors dropped in this week- even more than last week! Although there is a dungeon we haven't had to use it YET!!!!
As our research continues we are searching relevant information that will answer our questions. How does a castle defend itself from different kinds of attack..?....why were punishments so hard...?....what was the cause and consequence of disease in the Middle Ages ? and many other questions.
When you have a few minutes to spare come and see us in action.

During Science week we cross grouped across the 4 classes in our Syndicate to carry out different science tasks.
We made hot air balloons that when fired up in the playground either caught in the trees or flew right over to Rosmini. We also made rockets with ballons and straws. In room 4 we experimented with balloons.
In our own class we worked on Chemistry tasks that involved decanting, filtering and evaporating to separate 3 mixtures. It was so exciting watching the sugar crystals boiling up on the sides of the beaker.
Lighting the bunsen burner was scarey but great and we trialled how to put these out safely before we started.
It was alot of fun.
