Welcome to Year 5!
2021 - 2022
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!
Children had great fun learning about New Zealand's culture this week. Performing the Haka was certainly a highlight for them!
Year 5 had a great time at Thinktank. We attended a Friction workshop, and we were impressed by the Smethwick Engine.
'We practice our times tables every day in year 5 and are currently on our 6's. Our favourite part is when we play our times table game and we all become very competitive!'
Countdown to CHRISTMAS begins! We had a visit from some elves overnight, who left the children a treat! I think they were very pleased.
Year 5 love using the Chrome Books for extra research in Geography lessons!
The children wrote code for the Micro:bit so that it made sounds when the guitar was shaken / 'strummed'.
Maisie, 5BL Member of Parliament, designed a poster (graphic design) promoting the toy sale.
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.
