Lawrence Weston Moor with the Avon Wildlife Trust
We went to Lawrence Weston Moor to spend the morning with Avon Wildlife Trust as part of the lottery funded 'My Wild City' project. Lawrence Weston Moor is a large area of meadows and ponds just behind St Bedes' playing fields, near the allotments. It is owned by Avon Wildlife Trust and is home to many plants and animals including water voles and deer. In Science we are learning about living things and their habitats, so to support this, we did bug sweeping with nets to collect and identify insects living in the grasses of the marshland habitat. We also thought about how poisoning the land with chemicals affects food chains. It was a great morning of learning and exploring! The Avon Wildlife Trust have selected our school to take part in this fantastic three year project and we look forward to more activities with them throughout the year.
In Maths, we have been developing our understanding of division. We used the place value to explore this practically before moving onto formal written methods.
