Our Fishkeeper Fry Project:
Goldfinch and Wagtail have been working hard this term being fish keepers. With special thanks to Maidenhead Aquatics, The Round House are now the owners of a beautiful aquarium which is home to many different types of fish. Year 3 followed an eight-week journey of fishkeeping learning about how to care for fish, how to clean the tank and what fish need to survive? Each week, a new variety of fish was added to the tank and the pupils learnt exciting facts about the fish. We are very happy to be keeping the tank in school and offering other year groups the chance to maintain the aquarium.
Year 3 and 4 had an amazing Minecraft session today from Highways England. The children were tasked in helping construct the new A428 road from the Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet in Minecraft. They learnt about how to safely build without disrupting local ecosystems and managing noise levels as well.
Well done Year 3 and 4.
