Brockholes Trip

June 18th, 2018 | Posted by Mrs Ashton in Teacher Posts | Year 4 Archive

Last week we¬†visited Brockholes as part of our project ‘The Circle of Life’. We had such a great day and learned so many new things. We went pond dipping and found some very interesting creatures, learned about food chains and what producers, predators and prey are, played in the play area and explored the meadow and forest for minibeasts. We were so lucky with the weather too!

Here are some of the photographs from the trip. Take a look and share them with your families so they can see what exciting things we got up to.

Comment underneath and tell me about all the new things you learned during the trip.

    I think that Brockholes was a great success I really loved it,I thought that it was the best trip I have ever been to. My best part was when we cought all the moths and insects like damsel flies and red and black moths. We also got to go on the park,the good thing about that was that I pushed everyone on the swing and me and mason were laughing when we pushed it really high. When we got home I told my mum all about it.

They were so nice and the second thing we did was go out on the look out which was we had to find theese tiny little frogs which was really scary because they were soooooo small! So we had to wath out and it was a really fun trip and i hope we go again soon.

    When we went to brock holes for our year 4 school trip it was really fun. I liked it when we all got in the coach and sat with all my friends at the back. When we arrived we got in our goups and went to the look out. In the lookout we did a quiz and our teem lost, it was still realy fun though because I got to answer atleast 1 question. After the look out we went to the park and this was the thing I was realy exited about. There was lots and lots of things at the park like a swinging tire, a swinging bowl, and a stone pit. After the park we went in a forest to catch a bug for a container. I caught nothing but a fly. When we got back into the coach I sat next to my friends again.

  • Finley says:

    The Brockholes trip was amazing I had so much fun and I wouldn’t mind going again so that Dante can come. Eventhough I just said that the hole thing was epic still the best part was lunch because it was delicous. My actual favourite part (apart from lunch) was the park because it was so much fun. Over all I think it was BRILLIANT! and maybe, just maybe it was one of the BEST trips ever!

  • Lexi says:

    At brockholes i learnt lots and lots of things I was in a team with Amelia ,Harry wr,Ashton and me of course. My teacher for the day was Miss Ralph. My favourite part was the pond dipping. I learnt about this type of spit and you should find a little creature living in there how they do this is they eat leaves and then they produce this spit but the reason they produce the spit is because they want to hide from preditors they normally do this on the stem of plant.

    I loved the trip to brick holes! My favourite part was when we went to the park and lunchtime. The people called Kathryn and Elizibeth. My favourite thing to do on the park was the tire swing and this thing that you swing around on. I hates the insect catching because all my group caught was a single moth.

    The trip to brokholes was a realy good trip because we did all diferent activities.First we went on the coach, then we went to the look out to put our food in ready for our dinner, then we stayed in the look out and did a quiz.The quiz was about different sorts of animals, who ever got the answer right they got the point but if non of the the teams got it right the adults tryed to answer the question and if they got it right they got a point for the adults.Then we went to pond dip, in pond dipping we got a net and then we started catching some animals in the pond.After that we went to eat our dinner in the look out.
