Pickering Flood Defences

On Monday 9th of February we went to Pickering for a trip,  to see  the Pickering flood defences and how they cope with the floods.

The Environment Agency has  a project that is called “Slow the Flow”. They have built a very large reservoir which can hold millions of liures of water and slow the river down. They are putting things in like natural dams that are called mini bunds in the woods. They are good for the envioroment and animals near by.




Robinson Crusoe

In the juniors we are studying a book called Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. It is based on the true story of a man called Andrew Selkirk. He had a meeting with Daniel Defoe and he started to write the story . Daniel Defoe’s real name is Daniel Foe but to sound more popular he changed it. We have written some things for this topic. Mr Dean  has read us some of the book, but it has a lot of old fashoned launguge  so he read us a different version aswell.We  are  building  some shelters for the playground. Which will be fun!
