Now, that IS how you do a week at school!

We have had a wonderful time on our school trip- we braved the cold weather and, in true Base 5 style, got stuck in! We began by carrying out a river study, we had to measure a 10m work zone for our individual groups and then take lots of measurements- the banks, the depth of the river, even the stones IN the river! The children really did do an excellent job and we then used these measurements back in class to work out mean averages and what this information was telling us about the river. After that, we warmed up by the log burner and got straight back out there! We went for a river dip and you would not believe the creatures that we found- we even caught fish which is rare at this time of year. We then looked more closely at our catch using microscopes- some of the children got such a shock at what they saw close up that they nearly fell of their stools! To finish up the day, after lunch by the log burner again, we went for a rather foggy walk! We really felt as if we were in the middle of a very active water cycle! As you can imagine, the children just loved it- wide open wild spaces, where better to be? It was a pleasure to watch them have such fun in our lovely countryside.

Our learning for the rest of this week has continued to be based around the trip; learning about the creatures we discovered, looking at the data we found and analysing it. We have also been developing our skills with algebra, writing very careful and accurate instructions and completing some topic work.

A lovely week had by all I think!

This week we wanted to share our learning in science; we have been learning about forces. We looked at a range of items and tried to get these to move or change shape. We discovered that we could squeeze, blow, twist, spin and even throw objects to do this. We then realised that all of these verbs could be classified into a push or a pull. We then moved on to learn how items move on different...
