We are enthusiastic, hard working Year 5 children who always try our best to achieve our learning goals!


So far this year we have studied the Ancient Egyptians in Topic and have based our English work around this; creating Newspaper reports, Instructions and Persuasive letters.  Unfortunately we did not gain a trip to Egypt to enhance our learning, although we were very persuasive in our letter to the Head Teacher, Mrs Downes, but instead we have visited the Ancient Egypt exhibition at The Great North Museum. 


We work hard in every subject and enjoy learning through real life experiences. Lots of our lessons involve practical activities such as mummifying a real Pharoah (one of our classmates) and making a magic potions in maths. See some pictures of our wonderful work below or on our school Twitter page @BalliolPrimary.


We are a very friendly class who welcome everyone with a smile!
