Autumn 1 - Wild Waters

This half-term, we have been learning about wild waters, specifically rivers. We began our topic by looking at all the different parts of the river and creating our own on the field using a tarpaulin, soil and water; this meant that we were able to name all of the parts of a river. 


After learning about the water cycle and other rivers around the world, we made our own pamphlets about a river of our choice on Purple Mash. Finally, we visited East Meon and did some fieldwork about rivers, recording the velocity and depth of the river at different points.


We also looked at how artists, such as Monet, created rivers using a range of different techniques and utensils. We focused on Monet's impressionist style by using lines and creating the shape of the river. Some of us were inspired by Monet's famous water-lilies and building paintings, whilst others focused on buildings closer to home like the Spinnaker tower. 


We have been looking at reversible and irreversible changes in Science. We began our topic by seeing what melted the quickest - ice, butter or chocolate. We then went on to see what dissolved in water and could not be taken back out of the solution (an irreversible change). We made sure that all of the experiments we planned and carried out were fair, by only changing one thing and keeping everything else the same.
