Welcome to our class page everyone! We are 2M and we have 25 children in our class.
Our teacher is Mrs MacDonald and our teaching assistants are Mrs Gregory and Mr Collins.
We work really hard and love being together.
We can’t wait to learn new things…and have fun along the way!
We made our own inflating lungs with: card, plastic bags and straw.
Our Visit to Skipton Castle
We explored every corner of the medieval castle, which withstood a three-year siege during the Civil War.
We found out about the individuals and events that have shaped the castle from Norman times to the present day.
Our tour guide told us about:
Medieval warfare/castle defence; Building materials and techniques; Medieval and Tudor architecture;
The Castle’s role in the Wars of the Roses and the Civil War; ‘Butcher’ Clifford and his family;
and their links with Royalty; Coats of Arms; The Household and its servants;
Heating/lighting/water supplies; Medieval and Tudor cookery.
Our Visit to The Beacon Country Park
We had a fantastic time!
A stick insect visited our Classroom.
What we found out about this insect…
The stick insect (as its name suggests) is an insect that looks like a twig on a branch, bush or tree.
This unique identity means that stick insects can be extremely difficult for predators to spot.
Stick insects are found in the forests, rainforests and jungles around the world where they live a peaceful lifestyle,
expertly camouflaged into their surroundings. Stick insects can range in size from just 3 cm to 30 cm in length.
The stick insect is a herbivorous animal meaning that the diet of the stick insect is purely a vegetarian one.
Stick insects mainly feed on leaves and other green plants, along with the odd berries or fruit.
