We made a sundial!

When the sun emerged on Monday, Form 4 took their chance to make a sundial.

Form 4 completed last week with an excellent assembly for the rest of the school. They explained favourite parts of their camp, presented a slideshow and ended with a rendition of Singing in the Rain.

They have been learning about capacity in Maths and went outside to find the capacity of various containers. They were surprised by some of their results and refined their estimates during the course of the lesson.

In Science, they took advantage of Monday's better weather to make a sundial. Every half hour a pair of children would go and measure the shadow left by a bamboo cane and marked it with a piece of string. They were very impressed with their result by the end of the day and will use the shadow length measurements to construct graphs next week.
