Welcome to Year 5!
Mrs Davies from St Thomas Aquinas School has been visiting year 5 to teach them French. The children have really improved on their pronunciation and enjoyed learning new words and phrases during these sessions.
St Brigid's Local Area
As part of our Geography unit, we went on a walk of our local area to identify human and physical features. We ended with some fun in our local park.
A fantastic athletics event at St Thomas Aquinas School. The pupils really did us proud!

Sunday 25th April was Vocations Sunday. We marked the occasion by dressing up as what we want to be when we are older as a way of thinking about what God is calling us to be.
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!

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.
