Our questions include:

Where is the Mediterranean and what is it like there?

Is the Mediterranean different to other seas and oceans?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of living in a Mediterranean country?

Which fruits and vegetables grow in a Mediterranean climate?

Why doesn't everyone speak English and use the same money as the UK?

What is Mediterranean cooking like

Y3 visit to the Milner Centre for Evolution at the University of Bath

Friday 21st September 2018


Maple Class and Walnut Class were honoured to participate in the activities arranged by the University of Bath to celebrate the opening of the Milner Centre for evolution last Friday. The centre was opened by Dr. Jonathan Milner who provided the £5.6million needed to create this centre for scientific study.

The children were allowed to use the equipment in the laboratories and to meet some of the species housed there. We were hosted by students from the university and they were very happy to provide answers to our never ending stream of questions.
