As part of our rivers topic we went the Cuerden Valley and carried out a study based on the erosion of the river bank and the pathways the river took. We measured the depth of the water and the temperature as well as studying the current. We did this by racing ducks along the river. During the day we carried out an investigation to find out what was living in the water and identified a number of creatures.
Over the last two weeks the children have been learning about the democratic process and the rights of a child. The children spent time researching and understanding the 'rights of a child'. They then designed a new country, one in which the 'rights of a child' were important. They then designed and presented their own manifestos. At the end of the two weeks the children had to go to the polling station and vote for their chosen country. Here is an example of the presentations by the children.
We went the Broughton High School for three visits. Whilst we were there we were able to take part in cookery lessons and learnt a lot about healthy food. We created many different dishes and we took them home to our families for tea. We hope you enjoy the pictures of our work?
