11C Low Barns

Today, we went to Low Barns nature reserve, at Witton-le-Wear. It is a site of Site of Special Scientific Interest. We visited the visitor centre, had our lunch, and decided the route we would take around the reserve. We visited different bird hides and kept a keen lookout for different birds, mammals, insects and plants. Last month over 60 species of bird had been spotted at the nature reserve. We may have been a little too noisy as we didn’t see that many!

Until next time.

Japanese Windsock

As part of our Textiles topic on Japanese Windsocks, pupils in 7D have made a paper model of a windsock prior to making the fabric windsocks. This afternoon we have enjoyed flying our paper windsocks in the breeze.

On Tuesday afternoon, pupils in 7D enjoyed a cricket session with Ollie. Everyone worked very hard on their overarm and underarm throwing, then used their throwing skills to try and hit the wickets.

We all tried very hard, and can’t wait to develop our skills in future weeks!

Internal Organs!

This afternoon in 7D we have been finding out about our organs. We discovered what they all do inside our bodies, then looked at how they fit inside us. We drew round some pupils to make a human outline, then worked in small groups to try and put the organs in the correct position. We had lots of fun, and there was some brilliant team work.

11C Spring Lambs

This afternoon, we ventured out of the classroom and explored the Auckland Walk for signs of spring. We saw new buds and shoots on the trees, daffodils were flowering along the pathway and the lambs were prancing in the fields.

Until next time.
