Pond Dipping

We explored the river with a net, searching for sticklebacks and other wildlife. Our ranger showed us how to do this safely and gave us some super tips! We emptied our nets into a tray filled with water and obseved our findings closely with a magnifying glass.

River Meander

We observed the meander of the river and discussed how this can change over time due to weather changes and erosion. We sketched the meander and labelled our drawings using a key.

River Flow

We tested the flow of the river by dropping a plastic ball at a starting point and timed it using a stopwatch until it reached the end point. We worked as a team to observe the plastic ball down the river. We recorded our results in a table.

They will also be given a log in for RM Easimaths, where they can work through different mathematical questions and problems.


Please continue to read with your child on a regular basis. The reading record should be completed as often as possible and will be checked when they read with an adult at school. Children should read school books and anything else that they enjoy! The children will have the opportunity to visit the school library once a week too. Please make sure your child’s library book is back in school the following week so that they can return it and get a new one.
