We all had an amazing 'Egyptian Experience' and hope that everyone who visited did too!

On Tuesday, Class 12 spent a fascinating day at the Manchester Museum finding out about Ancient Egypt. First we all helped build a pyramid, then we examined artefacts and chose one for 'Asru' to use in the after-life. Next we met Asru the mummy and also looked at all sorts of genuine Ancient Egyptian objects.
Today we created a rock band animation http://www.alston.lancsngfl.ac.uk/download/www.alston.lancsngfl.ac.uk/download/file/1.%20rock-band.pdffile/1.%20rock-band.pdf
It has been a very exciting day for 'Children in Need'. We all came to school as spotty as possible and donated lots of money.
Just before dinner time we had a visit from Harry and Paul from Look North on their 3-legged journey between Huddersfield and Halifax.
Finally, this afternoon we spent time with our reading partners creating Pudsey Bears with moving arms and legs!
Today in computing we have been programming using Scratch. Here is the link to the help cards if you want to try it at home: https://scratch.mit.edu/info/cards/scratch.mit.edu/info/cards/
Class 12 really enjoyed performing their assembly to the rest of the school as well as parents, last week. We explained what we've been learning during our 'Renewables' topic work and talked about the 2 trips we have been on.
On Monday we did our bit for the environment and helped a local group, called Treesposibility, to plant around 250 trees on the slopes above the Calder Valley.
Last week Class 12 enjoyed a fascinating trip to Drax Power Station. We found out about how they make the electricity which is sent out to homes all over Yorkshire. Drax is a huge site so they took us in an electric-powered bus to look at the huge cooling towers, biomass storage dome and other areas. After putting on PPE (Personal protective equipment) we were able to go inside the enormous turbine hall to see the pulverising mills, boilers and turbines used to generate electricity.
We have all been paired up with a child from Class 1 as our 'reading partner'. It was very exciting to meet them for the first time and find out about them. We will meet up regularly to share books and do other activities such as number work.
It is an enjoyable and beneficial activity for all children from both year groups.
