- About Us
We've had an inspiring and fun time in Year 5 this week. On Thursday, we visited The Museum of Archaeology at Durham University to learn more about our topic of The Ancient Greeks. Thew children had the opportunity to handle artifacts and discuss what they were, who they were used by and what they were used for.
The children also had to decipher their names using the Greek alphabet, played an ancient Greek game and built a temple based on the ones from the past.
On the afternoon, the children acted out an Ancient Greek tragedy. The actors and the audience were magnificent!
To finish the week off, the children raised money for our school library by taking part in Muddy Mayhem. Well done to all children who took part!
On Friday, Year 5 enjoyed their first visit to the local library with members of their family. They explored how to use a library and were able to choose a book to read, which they stamped out themselves. The children are looking forward to using the library more often to access some of the fantastic books they have available.
This is the year of challenge, so this week Year 5 have loved the 'sticky' collaborative challenge of creating Ancient Greek pots using paper mache.
