Burn adventure

Burn adventure

Today the biggies went on an adventure to a burn in Banton. The burn was at our teacher assistants garden which was massive. As soon as we got there we took of our shoes or trainers and put on wellies because it was very went and slippery even though the sun was out and everyone nearly died in the heat of the sun.

After that we went into the very shallow burn where we thought there would be nothing so the we picked up our nets and went into the burn in our groups. In our groups we had lots of fun and found lots of disturbing, disgusting also weird creatures and bugs. At the end we regrouped and headed over to a brick wall where we put down a container that was filled with water and creatures where half of the stuff we never even knew what they were. We looked at everyone’s containers to see what bugs and creatures we all found in our groups and the most disturbing creatures that we found was in Emily’s and Aaliyah’s tub. Heather heard some grasshoppers and there was loads but we could only hear them not see them. After a bit of an adventure in the grass looking for them heather finally fought one and we got a container and put it in there gently and put a lid on it so we could see then after 10minutes she released it back into the wild.

Mrs. Gray the teacher’s assistant bought lots of food and drink she bought diluted juice for us and crisps and lollies that were tiny and still took us a long, long time to finish. Then she gave us even more sweeties and it was soooooo generous of her.

When we had all cooled down and finished we went back out to play in the boiling hot sun and we took out different equipment, there was a parachute and a rugby ball also a tiny ball for hand ball that everybody loved and didn’t use for hand ball. After quite a lot of chaos we packed up and nearly left but then there were Mrs. Gray’s dogs that were the cutest and most of us couldn’t resist patting them and wanting to take them home there was a pug called Freddy and two westies that were so cuddly and fluffy after a lot of persuading we left and we were about to die of heat and soreness on the way back eventually we made it!!!

Dippy’s naturenauts

Dippy’s Naturenauts

Dippy’s naturenauts is an immersive experience designed to help children explore, understand and care about the natural world around them.

Dippy the dinosaur and Fern the fox will guide your child on mini adventures in nature. Along the way, they’ll discover the colourful side of nature, learn about the UK’s native birds, flowers and trees – and hear stories from the Jurassic period, too.

We have use the app a little round the playground here is what some of the pupils thought.

What the app does
Lets you find nature feel nature and learn more about it.

How I got on
I got on well on doing the colour game. I found all the things like red=spinning top yellow=butter cup brown=tree green=grass and purple=flower thank you for making this app.

What I think about the game
It’s a very good game for letting people see more nature.

By Heather p4

The naturenauts game is one when you scan things and look for things in the wild.

I thought it was great because it worked smoothly but when you scan the colours is has to be exactly red e.c.t

When I used it I done the colour scan thing and I done the bird one too ( I didn’t see the birds at that moment but I have seen them before ).

Max P.5

Naturenauts is a cool app about getting kids excited about going outside. The app is mostly about nature that’s why it has got nature in its name. It’s a kids game about trying to get kids interested in nature and getting them outside rather than playing all day on there phones.

I think the game could move a bit smoother because the camera needs to be a little less laggy and it could use a bit more explanation on how to use the camera also it kept glitching me back to the start on the first few games of colours. Overall I think it was a cool and fun app but it needs to be a little more adjusted to the lag.

Emma, P7

The app is a good way for kids to go outside and explore the world outside. It was a good way to get some exercise and have fun.

I got on ok. I think that some people and I found it a little hard taking the pictures cause we all thought that you had to tap the screen to take the picture when you didn’t need to do that at all.

I found it fun but my camera kept on freezing and it was driving me bonkers but I really enjoyed it. It was good.

Hannah p.6

We got to play the app naturenauts. The game is about going out and recognising things and just noticing what’s around you in nature. There is lots of different things you can do like go on a colour hunt or look for certain trees and flowers.

I logged on and a thing I liked was that you got to name yourself and make a character. Then it just asks you a few questions like do you like nature and do you agree to be a naturenaut.

I played the colour hunt I liked it because I got to go around and find natural things with different colours even though I struggled with purple. At first I didn’t understand about taking the picture because I thought you had to press the button to take the picture and I thought that I was taking pictures of random things so I kept cancelling out and going back in again. Shortly I realised that it automatically took a picture when it saw the things. After that it was pretty easy to use.
