Conifer exploring weathering and erosion

We had a fun geography lesson exploring the different processes of weathering which shape our landscape.

We looked at chemical weathering through the use of bicarbonate soda and vinegar to make chemical reactions. Physical weathering by comparing the water inside bottles, one frozen and one not. Biological weathering by observing images of plants and humans. Finally we tested the effects of wind erosion by blowing the sand formations and watching how they changed.

 

Black History Month

Brockswood celebrated Black History Month this afternoon. They visited different teachers who each taught them about an influential man or woman from black history. Each class then spent time making an interpreted African Tribal Mask, writing their name in a version of African script and playing an African game called ‘Mbube Mbube’.

Can the children tell you about one of the people they learned about and why they were famous?
