History & Geography

Making Mountains

Year 6 investigated how different mountains were made. They used books and triangular prisms to learn about how fault-block mountains are made; they used an elevated tray of sand and water to learn about plateau mountain formation; and they used different paper to investigate how fold mountains are formed. As a class we then used icing sugar and a piping bag to see how volcanic mountains are formed. We are physical geographers!

Hedgehogs Class Assembly – Our Mining Community

What a fantastic presentation and performance of work! The audience were most impressed by all our learning about coal mining. We shared our work about home life and mining in the Victorian period, the different jobs children did in the mines in the 1800s and how disasters such as The Huskar Pit flood led to the Children’s Act. The children’s dancing, acting and singing really brought our topic to life! 

Autumn is here!

The delightful Daisies are having lots of fun finding signs of Autumn in our Nursery environment. Some children have even made Autumn pictures using their findings!
