Halloween Disco – Tuesday 30th October

Our new Friends of Signhills Infants (FOSI) have organised their first event – a Halloween disco to raise funds for projects in the Infants.

Due to limited space, tickets are available from the office on a first come basis.  Tickets are £3 per child and are available for Infant children only.

All children are the responsibility of an adult however if you are unable to come, you are welcome to ask a friend to be responsible for your child. The disco is on Tuesday 30th October 5.30pm to 7.00pm.   Fancy dress is optional.

We hope to see as many of you as possible to support our first PTA event.

Building Earthquake Proof Shelters 

As part of our year 3 topic work on Tremors, we have been learning all about volcanoes and earthquakes. We have learnt how scientists use the Richter scale to measure earthquakes and we know the difference between active, dormant and extinct volcanoes. We have also looked at how the structure of a building can help it withstand an earthquake. 

On Tuesday we used our knowledge and worked in groups to plan our own earthquake proof buildings. Yesterday we constructed the buildings we planned. We had lots of fun and we can’t wait for next Tuesday when we are allowed to paint them. We hope our buildings can withstand the final earthquake test!
