Year 2’s Walk through Hulme Woods – 27th September 2018

Today Year 2 had a wonderful time walking through Hulme Woods, Denton, in search of human and physical features of the land.

The children had a terrific time working with their Kagan groups to spot them. They were able to find many human features, such as, the remains of the colliery boiler house in Hulme Pit, many small bridges and lots of signs to show you the way. They also found a range of physical features which are natural features of the land, including, the River Tame, tall towering trees, fields and many species of plants.

Thank you to all of the families who joined us and made this trip possible!

Take a look at some of our photos below!

 

 

  

The Battle of Bosworth

Tudor’s by Jaylen

This week at school we have been learning about the Tudor’s and the battle of bosworth. It was in the year 1485 and the Tudor’s won the battle.  I have enjoyed learning about this at school. It sounded very scary though. I’m glad I don’t live in the Tudor times

My favourite place in Denton by Kyle Palomo

My home is just a walking distance from haughton green playing field which is my favourite place in Denton. It is special to me because me and my best friend always go there to play. We always go on the slides, swing and football area. Sometimes me and my sisters go there with our bikes when the weather is nice..I always have fun everytime i go to haughton green playing field because of so many things you can do and play with.

Year 5 Science Investigation.

As part of our Earth and Space topic in Science, Year 5 have been investigating day and night and the apparent movement of the sun.

We wanted to investigate what happens to the length of a shadow throughout the day? We measured the length of a rounders stick post shadow every few hours throughout the day and recorded the measurements. We found out that the length of the shadow was at it shortest at mid-day. This was because the sun was at its highest point in the sky. We also noticed that the angle of the shadow changed each time, this is because as the sun’s position in the sky changes it alters the angle at which it hits the post. This proved to us that the Earth moves!
