St James C of E Primary School

Welcome to our school website which I hope you will find both informative and a reflection of what is happening here at St. James School. We are a church school and our Christian values underpin a lot of our work and aspirations both for the children and the whole school community.


Science Week

At the beginning of the Summer term we had an amazing Science Week which involved the whole school.  One morning, before school we challenged our parents to see who could blow an object further - a younger person or an older one.  We took measurements and compared results and drew a number of conclusions.

We also spent the week learning about forensic science and all took part in 'CSI type' workshops - learning about DNA and how to solve mysteries from tiny amounts of evidence.  And in all our classes, we've been having fun with experiments - recording data, running fair tests, forecasting results and drawing conclusions.

Congratulations to our Science award winners

In the last week of term we experimented with sticking tinsel to balloons just using static electricity.

We grew salt crystals at home as part of a whole school science experiment.
