Class 2: 2018 – 2019
During our Science topic on animals and habitats we participated in a MammalWeb workshop. Before the workshop we were given a camera trap which we placed in different parts of our outdoor area. The camera took photos of the local wildlife. During our workshop we collected the camera and got to view the different photographs it has taken. We learned a lot and could name a variety of different animals that are local to us.
Bowes Museum Egypt Workshop
This Autumn term we learned about Ancient Egypt. As part of our learning we had a workshop from Bowes museum. We looked at a variety of artefacts, drew our names on papyrus in hieroglyphs and make our own clay shabti.

In Computing this half term we are learning how to use Crumble software. First we assembled a circuit including a Crumble Controller and a light. Then we used the laptops to program our circuit and turn the light on in a colour of our choice. We found this very exciting!
Ancient Egypt Workshop
Last half term Class 2 took part in an Ancient Egyptian workshop with Richard. First we learned about the pharaohs and what they wore. Then we took part in a mummification ritual and had a go at bandaging each other! After break we learned about hieroglyphics and designed a cartouche with our name using ink and bamboo pens. Finally we learned how to play a game called 3 men. We had a fantastic morning and learned a lot of interesting facts.
Through Autumn Term Class 2 and Class 3 are taking part in Peer Tutoring. Every Thursday morning the Year 3 children are coached by Year 5 in solving mathematical problems and challenges. Year 2 are supported in their use of Bug Club by the Year 4 children who hear them read and ask questions to develop their understanding.
