Hello and welcome to year 5
I’m very happy to be working with your children this year and have lots of exciting learning opportunities and activities coming up.
In the morning we study English, maths and Religious Education and in the afternoon, we study science, computing, humanities, art, music, P.E and French to meet the outcomes of the National Curriculum.
If you ever have any questions about school or your child's learning, please come in to have a chat.
Every morning we start our day with a prayer before a lit candle and at midday we say ‘The Angelus’.
The children will continue to add to their knowledge of catholic prayers and devotions.
Last year we celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima. To mark this special year, we reflected on the special events which took place there and will continue to pray the Rosary as requested by Mary to the visionaries.
Brother Chris and Brother Royston talked about their vocation during our Year 5 retreat and we learnt about the special Redemptorist saints who inspired them.
We also had a visit from two local police constables who talked about their special job in protecting and serving the community.
Our current Come and See topic is 'TRANSFORMATION'. This topic focuses on the special feast of Pentecost. Our recent Class Liturgy had a particular focus on the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit.The children now understand that through the power of the Holy Spirit, the disciples lives were transformed. This enabled them to spread God's Word throughout the world. As modern day disciples, we too are encouraged to evangelize and share our faith with others.
May is the Month of our Blessed Mother Mary and we have been praying for lots of different intentions during Rosary Club.
We are very much looking forward to our trip to Sky Studios where the children will have the opportunity to write their own fascinating news report on Animal Rights!
This term we have been doing lots of revision for our summer tests! Our arithmetic scores are improving and we are working very hard to develop our reasoning skills.
Our new science topic is ELECTRICITY. The children will be taught to:
• associate the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit
• compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the on/off position of switches
• use recognised symbols when representing a single circuit in a diagram. s
