Welcome to Year 5!
We are very much looking forward to the year ahead. There are lots of things to be excited about. Hopefully, there will be little disruption and we can get on and enjoy the year together.
.We look forward to working to the best of our ability and being a good disciple, in line with our Gospel Values.
Our Catholic Faith is very important to us, and in Year 5 we strive to ensure that we live out our Mission every day. We participate in assemblies, as well as celebrating in class worship and whole school Masses.
In our classrooms you will find a happy learning environment where all children are encouraged and engaged in their learning in order to reach their full potential.
When the children in 5SS arrived this morning, there were a few new additions. Can you tell we are looking forward to Christmas?
5SS had a lovely afternoon learning all about the tradition of the Jesse Tree. We created our own ornaments, which depict stories from the Bible up until the birth of Christ. We also created an Advent calendar to help us count down the days until Christmas.
As part of Mental Health week, 5SS wrote anonymous kind messages and compliments on hearts for each other. Children really enjoyed this activity and can look back at their hearts when they are feeling sad.
Year 5 had a fantastic time investigating reversible and irreversible changes during their Inspire Workshop. Thank you to all parents for taking part – We hope you had as much fun as the children did!
5FC Egyptian Workshop
We had a great day exploring Ancient Egypt through role play, investigating original objects and making things.
5SS thoroughly enjoyed their Egyptian workshop today. They have learnt so many new things and participated in lots of fun activities. It was a great introduction to their topic!
This week in class 5SS, some of the children volunteered to lead our Collective Worship. We also prayed to our Guardian Angels.
