During Advent, children were able to take home one of the class Travelling Cribs. These are special bags that contain a writing book, a nativity scene and the Christmas Story. The children were then asked to either write or draw a picture in the book to share their experience with the Travelling Crib. We received some wonderful work.
The children have been learning about Judaism and the celebration of Shabbat, they took on the roles of family members, they learnt how to plait and made challah bread. The class then enjoyed some time as friends and learnt just how special Shabbat must be for Jewish families.
Mini Beast Hunting
The children really enjoy going into the school garden and woodland area. During this visit they were looking to see how many different mini beasts they could find.
Year 2 went into our woodland habitat, they played a game called lunchtime and pretended to be part of a food chain surviving in our habitat. In the game they had to find a food source. The children know that the sun is a source of energy for plants and that a food chain is made up of animals that provide energy for one another. They also know that animals depend on plants and other animals for survival.
Bowes Museum Fun
Year 2 had a really fun day at Bowes Museum, see the Bowes Museum gallery for more pictures from their trip.
