Measuring the Weather

March 7th, 2017 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Yesterday we started to look at how we could measure the weather. We talked about all the different things we could measure outside.


We talked about measure hot and cold outside. Harry suggested we could use a thermometer to do this so when we went outside we use the new thermometer to measure the temperature. We measured it to be 10 degrees celsius.

Wind Direction

We also looked at how we could measure the wind if it was a windy day. We used material to hold up and see which way it was blowing. We discussed using a compass to show us what direction the wind was blowing. We talked about North, South, East and West. We used the compass on the iPad to helps us find out wind direction.


We looked at how we could measure the rainfall from the day. We discuss how today we
had seen no rain so we could say that there was NO rain today. We left some bottles outside to catch the rain if it fell over night and we will be back to check it tomorrow.

Weather Symbol

After measuring the different aspects of the weather we then chose a weather symbol to represent the weather today. This is the one we chose:

Farm to Fork

February 28th, 2017 · No Comments · Uncategorized


This morning some of our class visited TESCO Worksop to take part in the Farm to Fork session about Healthy Eating.

We walked all the way from school which took us quite a long time as we only have little legs. Non of us moaned though and we were glad the sun was shining!


We looked at all the fruit and vegetables and hunted for different coloured fruit. We talked about the sugar content in certain foods and even got to try some foods that are low in sugar which are better than eating chocolate!


We then made a breakfast muesli to take home and eat.
