I am happy in school today. The reason is that so many children are taking part in the blogging challenge. I am looking forward to seeing some excellent writing and I am going to share my favourite pieces of work on twitter.
The great thing about this challenge is that four other schools are doing the same activity today so we can look at other work and leave comments . I will take some pictures and feel free to comment and share.
Our children love you to visit their blogs and they want as many comments as possible to improve their work. Check back soon to see what we are doing.
During the rest of the year I will post my favourite picture of each day. This picture is great because these girls learned so much on the visit to Hathersage. They had so much fun and I sure you can tell. Keep checking back for to see which one I choose. You might even be in it.
There is a busy day ahead of us again today and the children have had a good night of restful sleep. They are looking forward to the activities today and they are currently about to have breakfast. The whole group have behaved very well and have been a great advert for our school and their parents. It has been great to see them become more independent too.
Check back today for more photographs and updates to see what we are doing and we love the comments too.
Our groups split into two today and our group went to take part in orienteering and a stream study. We learned how to orientate a map so we could work out where we were on the map then we had to find some control points to help develop our skills. After this we had to find five different checkpoints and pin our marks on our cards. We did this about four times and all members of the group are now pretty good map readers.
In the afternoon we took part in a stream study. We found about 8 or 9 Cray fish and these were very interesting creatures. We found a number of small fish and various insects. We decided to test the depth of the stream and the water came into our wellies. A few of us decided to find out how cold the stream was and got very wet. We hope you enjoy the blog and pictures and we will write again later to let you know about the walk up to Stanage Edge. It has been an amazing visit so far and we all love it here.
