In Class Two we have been looking into the Tudor Dynasty as part of our history learning. We were researching the War of the Roses and the start of the Tudors. Linking to this the children had to design and write a set of instructions for making a Tudor Rose from clay.Once they had completed the instructions they had to make their roses following them. When they had dried out the children painted them in the Tudor colours.

Our Charity for 2014-2015 was
School in a Bag (SIAB)
This charity was chosen by the children. It is run by the Simon Piers Appeal raising money for displaced and underprivileged children. Providing them with all the items needed to go to school including stationary, pens, maths equipment, water bottles, sporks and torches, all inside a back pack.
The final amount raised was £347.83
This was enough for every child to be able to pack a bag.
The charity organisers and Holsworthy Rotary Club brought bags and items to school and helped the children to pack a bag each. We will be able to track the bags to find out where in the world they will go.
