Back at school, Year 1 and 2 had lots of fun setting up their tents and making it cosy. We then enjoyed a yummy BBQ, cooked by Mr.
After tea, the children enjoyed a game of football rounders followed by a visit to the park.
Back in the hall (teeth brushed and pj’s on) the children were ready for a bed time story, before heading to their tents for a good nights sleep (the bit they wanted to do all day).
Thank you to all the staff and volunteers for helping out, the parents for supporting this event and of course the children who did nothing but make us proud. ☺️
As part of our topic we have been working hard and having fun athlete as well. Where we have been completing tasks and finding out all kinds of things for our homework, linked to the Egyptian homework grid.
Here are some of our master pieces created with our parents help and support at home. We’re very proud of them and think they look fabulous!
As you can see many of us have chosen to make Egyptian pyramids however we have all taken a different approach to making them and we have used a wide range of different materials and techniques to build. Including, using egg boxes, Lego, cardboard templates and even sugar cubes!
We have also been finding out about the ancient Egyptan customs of mummification and some of us have had a go at making our own mummies and creating beautiful and elaborate mummy cases.
In science we have been learning about forces and magnets. We have about push and pull forces ied out instigation with magnets. Asking questions about them and testing how they work before finding out what they are used for.
Here is some of our science work, including the tables we completed for our investigations into the north and South Pole of magnets and whether they attract or repell and an nvestigation into which materials are magnetic.
Here we we are testing the magnets using objects around the classroom.
our new topic is in full swing now and we are really enjoying learning all about Egypt. So far, we have learnt all about where Egypt is in the world.
As well as, beginning to learn about Egypts climate and terrain. We found out about the river Nile, Egypt’s main source of water and how the Egyptian people have developed ways to maximise how it is used in the harsh heat of the Egyptian dessert.
Here are some of the fact files we have made about what we have learnt about the river Nile doe far…
Today we took 15 swimmers from Class 2 and 3 to Penrith Leisure Centre. The team put in a fantastic effort, with many firsts in their heats. But what made us proud was the amazing sportsmanship that they showed to other schools, as well as their own. We stayed till the very end making sure everyone was cheered on. We definitely deserve a 1St for our support! 😊
On Tuesday 8th November we went on a class trip to Tullie House as part of our Vikings topic.
During the morning we took part in a Viking workshop with the staff at the museum. We took part in 5 different activities involving retelling aViking myth story, Viking runes, Scandinavia, Viking burials, Viking clothing & artefacts. We even got to make our own piece of jewellery to take home with us!

Well done to all of the children for taking part in the Basic Moves Festival. They showed great sportsmanship and some of the children overcame anxieties. To round it up, we had a really enjoyable afternoon and got LOTS of stickers.
Day 2…. This morning we woke
the teachers up at around 6.30am and by 7.30am we were all ready for breakfast. We had a choice of cereals and toast and all the usual condiments.
We made our own lunch which consisted of a wrap with various fillings. A lot of the children like cucumber it turns out!!
We went on our walk up to Rydal caves. When we were there we stood in awe as we imagined who may have lived in a cave like this. We walked along to Loughrigg Terrace where we had lunch.
Upon our return we prepared for our three afternoon activities. This involved exploring Rydal Hall a little bit more.
Mr D cooked our bolognaise and pasta made from all fresh ingredients including: corgette, pepper, tomatoes, onion and garlic. The best compliment was paid by all the children eating every thing on their plate.
Before the bonfire we had a few moments to tidy our bedrooms. They are rather messy!!
We finished the day with a camp fire and songs. What a great day we’ve had.
We are all looking forward to seeing you tomorrow afternoon.
Night night. Sleep tight X
It’s a beautiful day. Everyone slept really well and we are off on our walk.
