March 4th Y2 exploring creativity in learning
The students in the Y2 UN group explored definitions of creativity by making something to share with us that could explain and define ‘creativity’.
On Wednesday June 4th The UN Y1 group went to Newton Field Centre to explore the curriculum in the outdoors.
Although it was a wet day we all went off to the river with the measuring equipment. The river was higher and more fast flowing than when I visited on Monday! We measured the river profile, timed the flow in different parts and collected a kick sample so that we could go back and investigate the invertebrates back in the dry.
When we returned to the centre the group took a closer look at what they had collected by sorting by number of legs.
We also looked more closely using the microscopes, the IPad app, BigMagnifiy and the visualiser. Georgina explained what the sample can tell us about the health of the river.
After lunch the rain stopped for a while and we were able to go out for a walk, to take photos and look around the medieval remains of the Tresham estate.
The group were interested in the Dovecote – we had a shock when a sheep burst out of the door though! Inside the dovecote there is room for hundreds of doves to nest and a wonderfully constructed ceiling. What a shame this building is being allowed to deteriorate!
Here they are:
The group also made and printed collage tiles based on the shapes and textures of the stones used the build the church.
Despite the rain the group joined in everything and had a good day.
