In our geography lessons, we were learning about coasts. We could choose a place that was near the coast ,we chose San Marino. It has lots of tourist attractions such as, beaches that have water parks, a great football team, guaita, which is a castle, an adventure park named San Marino Adventures – you can ride ponies there, do some archery, jungle soft air and lots more fun- San Marino nature park and plenty more exciting places to visit although it is a small country. The average temperature is 18.1 Celsius and the population is 31,950 which has increased by 0.53% since 2015!

Two weeks ago, a man who makes magnificent mosaics, came to our school. We had to draw our mosaics on a piece of paper and there were eight winners. Unfortunately, I was not a winner which meant I didn’t get a ten pound gift card. The winners also got to make their mosaics that they designed and their classmates gave them a good hand. It was very fun.  We had to draw things to do with the country side.

Floods (1998) – Saule 5C

picture 119 years ago, there were 10 days of heavy rainfall. Raining and raining and raining without stopping for a rest. One morning, all the local residents of Far Cotton woke up to the swirl of water invading their innocent homes, and destroying anything that comes in its way! All their food was destroyed but luckily the local supermarkets such as Tesco were prepared. They had loaded lots and lots of food into gigantic lorries which were driven to the top of a hill for people with no food. Police knocked on everyone’s doors to make sure that nobody was left out. 




River Nene walk – Ausrine – 5T

Three weeks ago, 5T went on a river walk to find out some interesting facts. We walked all the way to Beckets park and this is what I found out:
Carlsberg brewery used to be another brewery a hundred years ago. Across the river there now are flats but a hundred years ago there were lots of timber yards and saw mills. Did you know that Beckets park was once a meadow called the cow meadow? Maybe it was called that because Morrisons – once a cattle market – was right next to it. In 1998 the River Nene flooded caused by torrential rain. There were six weeks rainfall in only one day. To find out more visit this link below:

Today, if you pass the River Nene you would see KFC, B+Q, Carlsberg, flats, apartments, Carlsberg bottling factory and the canal. But if you passed this outstanding river 100 years ago, you would see Northampton Brewery, Cattle Market, Globe works, Sawmills and Timber yards. These days, you would hear cars, birds twittering to one another and you could probably hear Carlsberg in the background. 100 years ago, you would have heard the banging of some boats and the shouting of men calling for help to one another.

Mosaic

Today, we were learning to make mosaics with some visitors called David and Sandy and we had to design some mosaics on a piece of paper.  The best ones will get to be put on the display by the canals. Later on, we will be designing some proper mosaics.

Right now as I am typing this we are about to make our mosaics and a few will be chosen to put next to the River Nene. We got to pick an object out of this list: acorn, thrush, fish, toad (which is the one I’m doing), otter, rose and a tadpole.  So far we are designing our mosaics and in a few minutes we are going to make them. Most people have picked a rose to design in Year 5.

River Nene is a river which runs through towns such as Northampton and Peterborough and many other places. This river leads to The Wash in Lincolnshire.  In 1998 it flooded during Easter time and ruined some Northamptonshire homes and the people in it due to bad weather.

The River Nene is a river not far from our School.  During Easter 1998 there was so much rain that the River Nene flooded. This flood affected a lot of people, some people even lost their lives. Although many people lost their homes, charities all around Northamptonshire stepped in, giving people homes, furniture, toys and even food.  If I was alive at the time I’d be very grateful.
