Water Gauge

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 26th November 2013

Today we went outside to look at the water gauge Mr Ryan put in the river. It is used to tell how high and low the water is going to go during the winter. We are using it to help us get our maths and science award. We will go outside and examine the gauge and take a photo so at the end of December we can see how different it was.

Halloween dress up Games

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on 13th November 2013

On the last day of the term we all dressed up in Halloween costumes. People dressed up as witches skeletons and things like that. At around twelve o clock we went outside and played games where you would try and pick up apples with your mouth that were in bowls of water. It was really fun.
