Pond Dipping

Pond Dipping

Posted: Tue 14 Jun 2016   |   Governors

The very best part of being a governor is having the opportunity to spend time with the children at Highfield. Today I was particularly fortunate as I was able to join 6HL in a pond dipping investigation. I was reminded of how lucky we are to have such amazing outdoor provision at Highfield. The nature area is no exception and today it provided a wealth of pond life for analysis by year 6.

It was lovely to see the children so engaged and focussed on the activity. Each group collected a sample from the pond and worked together to identify their findings using keys and diagrams. I witnessed some fabulous teamwork and there was lots of interesting and lively discussion around the tables. The class will be presenting their findings on bar charts and I look forward to seeing the results.

Thank you 6HL I genuinely had a fantastic morning and you really are a credit to Highfield.
