Welcome to Class 5
You can find out more about our learning by visiting the our curriculum section of our website.
In Science we are investigating different properties of materials. This week we were testing how well different metals conduct electricity by creating circuits.
Escomb Church Visit
Class 5 had a fantastic visit to Escomb Saxon Church on 3rd October. Mrs Beddow gave us a guided tour and told us all about how the Anglo-Saxons had built the church. We became detectives looking for clues that the Romans left in the stones (the stone was taken from the fort at Binchester once the Romans had left).
We had Newcastle University in Class 5 for their Campus Explorers activity on Friday 11th January. They were given a virtual tour of the campus and completed different activities linked with subjects you can study there for example marine biology and maths. The children really enjoyed it and were given a certificate for taking part.
Class 5 had a visit from Durham Palace Green Education team for a Vikings Day on Monday 11th February. They had a great time handling some of the objects, learning how to play Viking games and finding out about Viking runestones.
