It has been a very busy week in Year 5! The main highlight had to be our Pilgrimage to Aylesford Priory. On arrival, we were given a tour by a Carmelite Friar where we saw beautiful chapels and peaceful surroundings. Fr Francis spoke about the history of the friary and pointed out a stone that had been blessed by St Paul VI. After our tour, we took part in mass. The children sang beautifully and were reverent throughout. It was then time for lunch where we could enjoy the beautiful weather. Our final activity of the day saw us thinking about our house saints as leaders, and how year 5 could use their example to lead the school in Year 6. The children behaved wonderfully and were commended by a member of the public who was visiting. Well done, Year 5. We would like to thank Michael for visiting us during the week to prepare for our visit and reflect on it after. We would also like to thank Fr Shaun for organising the pilgrimage.
This afternoon we were visited by science ambassadors from Dame Alice Owen’s school. We took part in practical investigations that taught us about what conditions in space are like and how we protect ourselves from UV rays.
Well done to our guitarists who performed for us this morning. It is always wonderful to hear the progress they are making.
There is no home learning this week. I hope to see you all at the strawberry fayre.
