Ancient Egyptian workshop

Today Year 3 were visited by Ancient Egyptians so we could learn more about the past! We were let into an inner tomb of a pyramid, helped solved challenges using hieroglyphs and artefacts. We heard stories of different pharohs, including Tutankhamun and Nerfertiti. Weveven learnt how to dance like an Egyptian.  The children had a wonderful time learning about life in Ancient Egypt. 

Tanners Wood join in with Hour Of Code week

Children throughout the school have enjoyed taking part in the National Hour Of Code this week. The initiative encourages children to become coders and problem solvers. The Year 5 children have enjoyed a range of activities with our volunteer computing expert, Simon Devon, which included coding robots and Microbits. Children in our school coding club also enjoyed a challenging coding session this week which they proudly demonstrated to their parents after the club, which turned into a mini robot wars episode in our school hall!

EYFS and KS1 also enjoyed learning how to Code using Osmo the iPad educational gaming accessory, which was expertly demonstrated by some of our Year 4 children. Our Year 6 children will also be taking part in a collaborative coding challenge this Friday, with a group of Year 7 and 8 secondary school children, via Skype in our computing suite.

The children have thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with new technology this week and have found it exciting and fun. Here are some photos of their learning.
