Thank you to all the children who took part in Year 5’s Music and Dance Talent Show and congratulations to Abbie and Emily T who received most votes for their performance. In the half term leading up to Easter we continue to learn about the Ancient Greeks including The Battle of Marathon and the origins of the modern day Olympic Games. During our Literacy lessons we will be looking at myths and legends, including Pandora’s Box. For our topic in Art, ‘Containers’, a visit to the Shipley Art Gallery on the morning of Thursday 24th March has been organised to allow children to experience for themselves containers of different designs*. They will have the opportunity to make their own container. The afternoon of that day is to be spent at the ISKCON Hindu Temple on Westgate Road. A traditional Indian meal will be served before looking around the temple. In Science Mrs Wallis is going to teach the class about the different states of water and the processes of melting, freezing, condensing and evaporating. The cycling proficiency scheme, which is free of charge, begins in the week before Easter and continues during the first half of the Summer term. Year 5 children need to bring their bicycles to school on Thursdays if they wish to take part in this scheme.
