Autumn Term

Go with the flow ~ Rivers and water

We have started the term by fi ding out about rivers around the world. With a range of atlases available, the children found out about UK and world rivers, choosing the most useful atlas and pages to find the facts they needed.

We then found out how water can cause erosion and shape the land by pouring water on sand and observing the effects. We used this to understand how rivers form. 

We were so excited to meet the author Emma Carroll on a video call, and find out about how she forms ideas and writes best sellers! We also had the chance to ask her questions about the writing process. 

In preparation for taking the Harvest Service, we spoke to a volunteer working for the charity WaterAid. We found out about water issues that affect people around the world and how people are working to make a difference. 

As part of our work in Maths, we have practised using a range of measuring equipment to answer questions. We had fun finding the mass, length and capacity of different objects...even the length of the whole playground! 

To start our work on news, newspaper and communication, we had a visit from BBC Somerset Radio presenter to talk about her job, the importance of the news and how shows are produced. We even took part in Playground Politics, part of her morning show!
