Welcome Back! 


This week in Science we have started to learn about States of Matter. 

Mrs Laslett helped us to learn about the 3 states of matter using balloons. We all learnt that the states are solids, liquids and gases. We also learnt about semi-liquids and semi-solids. 


We have had a fantastic start to the year and we are looking forward to starting our ukulele lessons next week.
