Friday was very quiet in school as the children and staff from Upper School wer out on a trip to Snibston Discovery Park.
Here are some of the reports the children wrote on their return.
At Snibston we built a lift out of Knex. I enjoyed this activity.
first one of the women from Snibston came to talk to us and tell us about the wind turbines. Then she told us what we had to do. We had to use cardboard, a plastic bottle, some sand in the bottle and sellotape. we had to build it – first my group taped the cardboard windmill to the bottle and we had to see which one would have the least seconds. My group took 8 secs. Then we moved onto our next group.
Our 3rd workshop was called Wild Things. there we learned about animals and where they lived. Some of the things we learned is that an owl pellet is the animal that the owl eats its fur or bone. We learned some food chains. This is one.
Fox – hedgehog – worms – leaves – sun.
As you can see, three very different workshops. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and hopefully learnt something as well!
