Year 12 and Salma joined Sue in the library for Afternoon Tea, as part of their prize for winning the World Book Day 2019 Classroom Display Competition. A lot of cake was eaten!
The theme of this year's Science competition was Climate Change. Entrants were asked to find out about it, and to suggest ways that we could do something to help prevent it. They also had to illustrate their work.
The overall winner was Safwan in Year 3, who won a set of 10 Dorling Kindersley Animal Sticker books.
The Runners-Up were: Arham (Year 4), Zarin (Year 5) and Rehanul (Year 6).
Well done to all of them for some really good research!
See their winning entries below!
