What an amazing visit we had today; 'Best trip EVER' I heard them say!
We completed a river study, working so well as teams. We measured the depth of the river, we looked closely at the river bank and even looked at what type of rocks had been deposited on the river bed- quite a task with chilly hands!
We carried out a river dip and found the most weird and wonderful creatures- we put them under microscopes to look closer and crikey they made us jump! They were real miniature river monsters! We studied them and created our own scientific drawings- doing an excellent job I may add.
We then went for a walk through the hills- boy did we enjoy this! Space + mud+ craggy hills- what could be more fun?
Thank you for a lovely day Base 5- it was a pleasure to be on the trip with you. I'm sure you will all sleep well tonight!

We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
