We have had a busy first week back. Along with the rest of the school, we have begun our writing topic on ‘The Tin Forest’. There have been some lovely posters completed about tin in preparation for this; well done, Year 5. In English, we have read the text and considered the feelings of the main character and how they change over the story. We have also been creative and have been turning junk into a tin forest of our own.
On Wednesday, Year 5 attended mass at Our Lady and St Vincent to receive ashes. The children behaved reverently throughout. This marked the beginning of Lent and today the children placed their Lenten promise on the hall wall.
