As part of our Village Survey tomorrow we would like to collect some information about people who live in the village. If you are able to answer these few questions and submit them we’d be really grateful. Please do pass on this link to others in the village too, so we can build up a detailed picture of the village.

Today was DT day and for this term it was a bridge building competition. Have a look at the videos below of the two strongest bridges in our tests. What makes one more successful than the other? Why were these two bridges stronger in general?
Have a look at this BBC site and find out about the life of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. What do you know already? What have you found out? What would you like to know? Add your comments to this post, and reply to others’ with your own comments.
Have a look at these bridges we made in DT this afternoon. Which do you think might work best? Why? What design ideas could be taken from these to improve your own model? Add comments to this post to share your ideas.
Your home learning for this first week of term is to take a photograph of the village showing what Barcombe means to you. It could be an image of the countryside around, of life in the High Street, or even something from closer to home. Whatever you choose, think about why this image is significant to you. We would like to use the images in school as part of a whole school display, so if you can bring them into school on memory stick, or already printed, that would be great. You can even e-mail to a special e-mail address and they will be automatically added to a special blog (http://barcombephoto.posterous.com) for all to see. Go on have a go! Parents can enter their own photos too if they want.
