BANG! We will be making our own volcano reactions, seeing what different things we can mix together to make the largest explosion. What will be the best? Mint and cola, vinegar and baking soda? (Please bring a change of clothes just in case it gets messy!)

After all this fun we will be using our own bikes and scooters (please ensure a helmet is provided).

Let's head down to Bournemouth Gardens to play some games and have a picnic! We will be leaving school at 9:15am to get the M1 bus down to Bournemouth. We will then get the bus at 11:30am to return to school for around 12pm.
