Please hand in any homework by Wednesday 18th March. Have fun researching facts and figures!
On Wednesday 2nd October we visited the Bodmin recycling plant to find out how our rubbish is recycled and how it might be used in the future. In the afternoon we were transported to the St Dennis 'recovery' site where black-bag rubbish is processed and incinerated to be turn into energy. The children (and adults) were amazed and inspired about what we learnt and have a better understanding of the 4Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover.
As part of our curriculum enquiry question - "What's Under Our Feet" - the children created volcano models and dioramas. They worked on mixing paints to match the subtle colour; developed confidence in working from direct observation and imagination; designed based on a theme adding detail to make a large scale sculpture. The children then linked science knowledge of reactions to make their volcanoes erupt.
What's under our feet? CLAY! We visited Wheal Martyn to look at the history of clay mining in Cornwall. We discovered how many things clay is used in, such as: toothpaste and shoe soles. The visit linked well to our enquiry of what is under our feet, especially to our geography focus on earthquakes and volcanoes. Did you know that clay comes from granite (a type of igneous rock)?
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
