Class 5 trip to Horton Kirby

On Friday we went on our class trip to Horton Kirby, we were focusing on learning more about rivers and river life.

We went on a river walk and performed an experiment with rubber ducks to test the flow of the river.

Back at the centre we analysed the data we had collect on our walk using our science skills.

Finally we were tasked with creating our own river from soil and working together to protect Lego buildings. 

We had a fantastic day and cannot wait to use our new knowledge about rivers in class!

Life in Brazil

On Monday 13th May we had visitors into our class. 

Ciao and Meg are previous inhabitants of Brazil, they talked to us about what it was like to live in Brazil, the differences in culture and were kind enough to offer us one of the local delicacies!
