Happy New Year and welcome back! In the first half term of 2011, History lessons in Year 5 look at how people lived in the ancient Greek empire. Greek objects loaned from the Discovery Museum will be available to handle. Just as last term, Mrs Wallis will teach Science each Tuesday and this half term’s unit of work develops the children’s understanding of gases. They will discover that air is a material and is one of a range of gases which have important uses. In RE pupils learn about the rituals and artefacts used in Hindu worship and they make comparisons with how people worship in other religions. A netball teacher from Whickham School will teach the class once a week for a session each Monday. Trumpet lessons continue to be led by Mr Parnaby on Tuesday mornings. Children have the opportunity to use the specialist IT facilities at the CLCs with two visits scheduled for this half term. The first is at Heworth CLC on Thursday 27th January and the second is to the Watermark CLC on Thursday 10th February.
