The Norfolk Broads

Diamond Class are learning about the Norfolk Broads. Today they researched birds of the area. Cora said she has seen a bittern and a kingfisher before. We listened to the boom that a bittern makes on the ‘Norfolk Wildlife Trust‘ website. 


What a wonderful time Year 5 and 6 had on residential to How Hill. They learned how to dissect an owl pellet and what owls eat, and how to analyse the quality of the water in the broads. They learned what animal life there is on the broads and at How Hill from a boat trip, from dyke dipping and from setting animal camera traps. They also learned how to read a compass and completed some complicated orienteering courses. The pupils were amazing and we hope to return to How Hill to learn more about our broads in the summer.

Reading an Ordinance Survey map

We use an Ordinance Survey map to learn about Snowdonia. We learned how to use a key to find the features of the area and we learned how to read 4 figure and 6 figure grid references.
