Designing Dragon Traps

5H designed and made fabulous ways to trap a dragon. We had some very clear ideas which then they explained to each other. Hopefully this will lead into some excellent instructional writing.

Wednesday 16th September - Nature Area Day for 5H

It was the turn of 5H today. We went into the nature area for the whole day, having fun, playing games, digging, fire- making, observing the fire, testing materials and enjoying marshmallows and biscuits! Some of the children commented that they were great hiders, one was king of the 'tribe', good climbers, marshmallow eaters and fun makers!

Nature Area Adventure

5A visited the nature area today. They investigated what happens to various materials when they are put into a fire. They predicted, tested and drew conclusions.

They also enjoyed delicious marshmallows.

Fun was had by all, climbing trees, making potions, stick play and investigating habitats.
