Autumn 1 Week 2- Year 5

We began our first full week with a visit from Alex, a seminarian staying at OLSV for the month of September. Year 5 became quite the investigative reporters as they asked a range of interesting questions to understand how his beliefs have shaped his life. It was really interesting to find out more about what it takes to become a priest and we were all surprised by the amount of languages that had to be learnt.

On Tuesday, we had our first P.E lesson of the year. We will be focusing on team building and problem solving this half term. The children worked together to strategise and made great improvements in their communication skills.

On Thursday, Kaz returned for a drumming session. We will continue with these lessons for the next half term and build on the skills they learnt in year 4. The class had a lot of fun and showed off some impressive rhythms.

Thursday was also Roald Dahl Day. We celebrated this by taking part in a hunt that required knowledge of his books and place value knowledge.

Year 5 also celebrated this day by creating some beautiful free verse poetry inspired by ‘The Witching Hour’, the title of the first chapter in the BFG.

Today I sent home the home learning. If there are any difficulties, I am available to help the children during Monday lunchtime.

For any who missed the ‘Meet the Teacher’ session. Please find links to the handouts and PowerPoint below.
