We enjoyed the camp fire at Low Mill last night. We toasted marmallows and drank hot chocolate. Joseph played his guitar and sang songs to entertain us. We all slept well and are enjoying our full English breakfast, ready for a day full of exciting activities.
We have arrived safely at Low Mill. We had lunch, made our beds and went for a lovely country walk. The sun was shining and we all enjoyed the fresh air. We are now having steak pie and chips for tea.
Some of the Sixth Form have been learning how to develop their personal fitness and keep healthy with the help of Tom
This afternoon pupils in 7D have been exploring the strength of our skeletons by trying to build a structure strong enough to hold up a tennis ball, using only 10 sheets of paper and sellotape. This wasn’t as easy as it sounds, but pupils had some fabulous ideas and we saw some great examples of teamwork.
In history, we learned about Mary Anning. We learned that she was a famous British paleontologist from the nineteenth century. She discovered a range of famous and important fossils around Lyme Regis. First, we looked at how fossils are made and skeletons of different prehistoric animals. We then looked at fossil foot prints and made our own…
Until next time.
We continued our pancake theme and made a tray bake variation. We made the pancake batter as normal.
We then poured the batter into containers with grease proof paper and then added bananas, apples, blueberries and peanut butter.
We baked them in the oven. We hope you like our efforts.
In science, we explored what makes the sound high and low pitched sounds.
Our first experiment involved filling bottles with different amounts of water and then looking at the effects of the sounds made by banging or blowing in them. Some of us were able to describe the difference in terms of sound waves and vibrations.
We then worked as a group and listened to the different sounds xylophones and boomwackers made…
We were able to link the size of the instrument to the type of pitch it made.
Until next time.
