Conservation Volunteers Part 2!

This afternoon the P7s went out to plant trees, while the P6s were at Bikeability. It was a beautiful afternoon, perfect for outdoor learning. To begin with Ms Scanlan showed the P7s how to plant a tree and then the P7s worked in pairs / groups to plant as many trees as they could. After Bikeability the P6s joined us and in total we planted 38 trees. Fantastic for helping the fight against climate change. Well done!

Conservation volunteers!

This afternoon while the P6s were doing Bikeability, the P7s did a fantastic job of cleaning out the pond. It had become really overgrown. Now there is lots of room again for the frogs and next year’s frogspawn 🐸

Ethan threw himself in to the task “It was really fun, especially going in.”

Anders said “ I really enjoyed it, we cleared out half of the pond.”

Hannah said “It was fun and it was really messy.”

Fiona said “It was fun because I didn’t get wet!”

Lena liked it because she got a wet bum!

Roma liked it because it was stinky.

Esther thought that it was fun to clear it out but it was stinky though!

Isla thought it was fun to make a huge pile of the vegetation from the pond.

Elijah thought the weeds were quite tasty…not really!!!

John Muir Day 1

On Friday 10th September the P7s and Ms Scanlan had a rocky adventure with Rob at Scatness. Everyone challenged themselves with a look over the high cliffs, explored the rocky beach, searched for (and found – thank you Leighton) the geo cache, explored the Iron Age building, walked across the land bridge (without using our hands!), had a mindful moment and finally went on a rock hunt. We even tried a bit of sea lettuce!
As always we had a great day – thank you to Rob – and we’re looking forward to the next one already 🙂

Map skills Friday 16th April

We learnt how to use compasses and take bearings today. Then in the afternoon we made our own compasses by magnetising needles and putting them onto cork discs floating in water. They worked really well 😄
