Welcome to the new look LEAP.

In LEAP the children have been looking at ways to keep their brain healthy. They understood that as well as looking after our bodies, it is important to look after our brains too. The children found lots of different ways to achieve this and shared them with their friends and family.

Remember……. a healthy mind is a happy mind!


Our new topic in LEAP this term is all about The Wizard of OZ. We will be taking a magical journey with some new characters and finding out  lots and lots of new and interesting facts. We will be writing,creating, singing, acting, building and having FUN !
 Linking into our new topic The Wizard of Oz we were discussing  gravity and cyclones  and decided to experiment with a tub of water. LEAP predicted they would all get wet ! That was not the case . No one  got wet when conducting this experiment.
