Year 4 - The children have continued their focus on the story of the Trojan horse and have used this as inspiration for their Art and DT. They have spent a lot of time researching different toy horses and moving toys, to find out how they work. The children then designed and sketched their own toy horses. 💙

Year One and Two went on their first trip of the year to Herrington Park and Penshaw Monumnet to explore the area and develop their geography fieldwork skills.

When they arrived, they began their treasure hunt around Herrington Park, identifying all of the identified locations on their map. When we got to the 'Viewpoint' we found out a little bit of information about Herrington Park and its history.
DID YOU KNOW ..... It was once a colliery and when it closed down only coal left the site and other materials such as red ash, sandstone and clay were used to develop the new park.

After lunch we made the treacherous journey up to the top of Penshaw Monument. Once up there we looked all around and picked out some key human and physical features. We also got the chance to use a compass and find which way was North. It was a fantastic day, the children brought so much back to the classroom and we are already excited for our next adventure!💙

Looks like they all had a great time

In DT, the year 4 children are designing and creating their own Trojan Horses. As a class, we have made one giant Trojan Horse too. The children had to research different moving toys before designing and sketching their own. Once we decided on a design, the children have been able to create their horse. We’ve had to put it together as well as mod roc it. Stay posted to see the final result. 💙

Bowes Museum- Year 3

Year 3 took the long journey to the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle to have a full day learning more about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age. The day was packed with incredible activities such as making clay beakers, exploring historic artefacts and sketching what the artefacts looked like.
The first activity was making a clay beaker. The children used a range of tools to mould and create their clay beakers. This helped the children to understand how pre-historic people made beakers and explored how the beakers were used to store food.

The second activity was to explore and hold artefacts from the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age. The children were incredibly knowledgeable of what the artefacts were and how they were used which really impressed the experts at the Bowes Museum.
As well as exploring the artefacts, the children then used their drawing skills to sketch the artefacts. The children demonstrated a range of drawing skills such as sketching and showing different tones.
We had such an amazing day at a fantastic place. It was lovely to see how thankful our children were to have the opportunity to visit such an interesting place. The staff at the Bowes Museum were blown away by Year 3 and they were great ambassadors for our school. 💙
