On Friday 23rd November, the children in Year 3 and 4 took part in the BBC Live Science lesson. The lesson was based around Dr Who with the doctor herself introducing the challenges and tasks to the children. During the lesson they explored the planets and discovered why light is important to life on Earth with the CBBC presenters as well as Dr Kevin Fong. Our school name even appeared on screen during the lesson.
