In Year 5 this week, we have been learning about percentages in maths and looking at the illustrations of Shaun Tan in English. We also did some computing where we focused on reducing the number of commands to make an algorithm more efficient.
A real highlight of the week was our Trip to Nicholas Breakspear School. We were invited to be members of their school community for a day to give us an insight into what secondary school will be like. Year 5 demonstrated exemplary behaviour and threw themselves into each learning opportunity- I was really proud of them all. We are very grateful to everyone at Nicholas Breakspear for their warm welcome and it was wonderful to see some Pope Paul alumni.
Year 5 were reverent throughout the Blessed Sacrament procession today and sang beautifully. It was great to see so many parents joining us in this act of witness.
Last week, Year 5 were the proud recipients of the attendance dog with 100%. Unfortunately, this week we dropped to 97%. Hopefully we can gain the title back next week.
