Inquiry Learning is the best!

We all found a question to investigate. We searched and searched for answers. When we had enough information we published our work. They look great. Now we will share our questions and answers with the class. We might even share them at assembly next week. Gosh we shine!

What Fun We Had!

A bouncy castle came to school

Today as a special treat the school council organised for a bouncy castle to visit for the day. Room 9 had half an hour just before lunch. It was exhausting!

Holly, Samantha and Toni were chosen to have their art work included. Well done girls. Why not go to the show and place a vote for Outram School.
