As the final part of the Rivers topic, Year 4 spent the first two days of the Spring term exploring, reveiwing and celebrating the work they had already undertaken.

In the Science Crest activity they were required to build rafts from A4 paper. The rafts were tested for the best load carrying capacity. They also reflected on their knowledge of rivers by producing a poem based on the three stages of a river and a pointallism picture.

Mr Edwards tooks groups to explore the stream above Spout Force where the effects of erosion and deposition were clear to see. Working together, the children measured the flow of the stream by timing how long it took an orange to float along 50m of stream. (Some groups also experienced some very heavy rain!)

Over the two days we had lots of parent help for which we would like to thank you.
