Compass bearings

As part of their Geography work, Year Six have been looking at bearings on maps and in the real world. Today they tried for the first time to take bearings from points within the school grounds.

 

They remembered the key points of holding the compass flat, pointing in the direction of travel, turning the bezel to North and reading the bearing carefully.

Shelters

As part of their work in DT on shelters, Year 6 have been making shelters from natural materials. They created some amazing structures using different designs.

As part of their Egyptian topic, Year 3 made Ancient Egyptian bread. The children had to use the scales to accurately weigh the ingredients and measure the capacity of liquids using a measuring jug.

They then combined their ingredients and the kneaded their dough and made a small roll each. We then created our own oven using a cardboard box and tin foil and baked our bread in there. The bread was delicious!
