Wolf Class Loggerheads Trip

Date: 25th May 2017 @ 10:24pm

WOW! The weather was fantastic today and Wolf class had an enjoyable time learning at Loggerheads. After only 20 children asking "are we there yet?" and an hour drive we finally arrived at our location. The children were quickly briefed and then split into groups. The children had a number of activities to complete throughout the morning. They were:

- Pond Dipping - using nets, the children caught and identified various minibeast and their habitat.

- Compass and Grid Reference Work - the children used maps to solve worksheets on compass bearings and grid references.

- Human and Physical Features - the children identified various human and physical features and explained why they are human or physical. They took photos of these features and will use them to create their own study of Loggerheads.

- Cross-section of a Meander - the children identified a meander and investigated the velocity and depth of the rivers cross-section. The children found that the inside of the meander was shallower and slower compared to the outside.

After our morning of fun learning the children had time to relax in the sun, eat lunch, top up the sun cream and play some sports, before heading off on a small walk to a lovely viewpoint to complete a field sketch. From the viewpoint the children could see the lovely Clwydian range including Mold Famau. Many even recognised the cabins located at Colomendy. 

The children's behaviour was impeccable and they represented our school in an excellent manor. Although a busy and eventful day, we still managed to pay our respects during this upsetting time with a minute silence. 

We now look forward to presenting our findings in school tomorrow.

Thanks for your support.
