Welcome to Class 5
Remembrance Day Walk
Today we had an excellent learning walk around South Moor exploring the historic sites. Mark took us round the South Moor Heritage Trail explaining the history of the miners who fought in the First World War. For more information see www.southmoorheritage.org.uk
Festival of Lights
Today we had an excellent experience at County Hall in Durham. We looked at many different faiths and how they celebrate. We had a lot of exciting activities to do and tried some amazing food. Elliot was great at tidying up too!!
Today we had an excellent experience with Crazy Creatures. We got to handle lots of scary animals including a Bearded Dragon, a Corn Snake and a Tarantula. This was to help our work for a scary writing day to include gruesome animals.
That History Bloke
Today we had the privilege of a visit from That History Bloke (Richard) who took us on a whirlwind tour of Viking life. The children were enthralled with his Saga of Ragnar Furrylegs and were amazed by some of the Viking artifacts they got to handle.
