Pond-dipping at St Josephs
Jun 23rd, 2015 by b.kelly

Year 4/5 last week visited St. Joseph’s School in Horwich.  We were welcomed by the friendly teaching staff in the Science department.


To continue our topic work on water we were invited into the school’s nature garden.  We were set a wildlife challenge and had to hunt for the answers working in teams!

The highlight of the visit for many of us was the pond dipping.  We were provided with nets and took turns to discover which pond life we could find.

We then had to workout the correct water cycle process…


cycle 1 cycle 2cycle 3 cycle 4 cycle 5  cycle 7 cycle 8 cycle

We were asked to think of ways we could save water.


Each of us was asked to workout how many litres we used in a day.

how much

Working in groups we were asked to think about issues different areas of the world had with water, we looked at the problems these communities faced and the affect this had on them.


We learnt about the role United Utilities play in the water cycle, this included how water was transported into our homes. Below are the old (black and metallic pipes) and the new (blue, plastic pipes).

What is?


What is green? Leaves are green,

Falling in the autumn breeze.


What is blue? The sea is blue,

With fishes swimming through.


What is black? The night sky is black,

With shimmering stars dotted around.


What is yellow? The sun is yellow,

Like a dancing daffodil in the wind.


What is pink? The sunset is pink,

With a cloudy sky underneath.


What is red? Blood is red,

Gushing through our veins.


What is white? Snow is white,

Falling all around.


What is silver? A knight is silver,

Charging into battle.
