Blencathra's Scientific Field Trip

This term we have been studying Living Things and their Habitats. We planned a visit to the woods to identify invertebrates and conduct a habitat survey. Finally, the snow melted and we had a dry day for our trip. Although it was still rather cold for some species, a large milipede, a centipede and lots of worms and slugs were found.

Cricket Coaching 

 

After last week's snow, Blencathra enjoyed getting out into the Spring sunshine with Jonathon for this week's cricket coaching. We were working on our bowling skills and by the end of the session there were quite a few wickets being  hit.

Dark Skies inflatable planetarium trip

Thanks so much to the Westmoreland Dales Hidden Landscape partnership who invited us to visit the inflatable planetarium at Mauds Meaburn Village Institute. Helvellyn and Blencathra enjoyed an amazing journey through the solar system, then lay back to learn about the constellations.

Amazing Art

 

Blencathra braved the torrential rain this morning to get to the Art exhibition at the Old Courthouse. We were fascinated by the amazing artworks particularly the peephole camera lenses, the art using sea glass and neon lights and huge discs of cast glass that reminded us of jelly! We also had a craft session where we began to make light sculpture lanterns, thinking about colour and shape. We will invite you into school to see our exhibition when they are finished.
