Delamere Forest Trip

In the morning we arrived at Delamere Forest and we met a forest ranger called Ben. Then we got off the bus and headed for the forest classroom. We went back outside and sat on wooden logs in a circle. We chatted about the rules and Ben made us laugh, he told us about animals and survival tips.

Then we went down to the trees ready to build our shelters. Ben showed us what we needed to do and then half of the class went to collect bracken and the other half built the shelters. Then we swapped over before we added the bracken as a roof for protection and warmth to complete our shelter. Ben said he would happily sleep out in both of the shelters we made. 

In the afternoon we took part in a Habitats Investigation.  We looked at some different animal habitats such as a squirrel drey, a badger sett and lots of rabbit warrens, and learnt about why the animals chose these places to be there home.  After that, we went exploring the forest for lots of tiny insects where we found two very rare violet beetles (1 girl and 1 boy) as well as lots and lots of other insects and creatures. Just as we were about to finish, there was a torrential downpour which soaked us wet through but this didn’t spoil a fantastic day.

World Book Day 2017

On World Book Day, Year 1 visited Year 5's classroom so the two classes could share their favourite books with each other and admire everyone's superb fancy dress.


Science Experiment

Year 5 were seeing if it was possible to clean up their copper coins using tomato sauce and a paper towel. We found that the acetic acid in tomato sauce removed the copper oxide and left the old, dull coins looking as good as new!
