We really enjoyed our day at Farmwise, Exeter. There were lots of different zones-we learned about food, animals and the environment and had the opportunity to meet lots of different people who have jobs in the farming industry.

                                   

The Big Bang!

Posted in Design Technology, Maths, Science

We enjoyed taking part in The Big Bang event at Great Torrington School where we learned more about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

 

We had the opportunity to measure our blood pressure, pulse, peak flow and listen to our hearts beat.

 

In the second workshop we learned how to use a green screen and camera to impose ourselves in to a James Bond film. We all really enjoyed dressing up!

We also had the opportunity to meet people who work in industries using science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Wild Explorers!

Posted in Adventure, Art, dance, Forest School, Geography, Science

We enjoyed our start to the topic and becoming Wild Explorers. We played games in the woods, identified trees, learned how to play the grass trumpet, cooked on the fire, had fun in the tipis, played in the mud kitchen, made sun art, invented rain dances, set up a weapon shop, climbed trees and rolled down hills. What fun we had!
