Earlier this week, Y5 celebrated a class Mass on the theme of Harvest. Not only did the children read and sing beautifully, but Fr Shaun was incredibly impressed with the children’s answers before the Mass began and during the Homily. I was extremely proud of them – well done, Y5! Thank you to the parents that joined us for the celebration.
The rest of the week has been dominated by our One World Week focus on Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Through art, the children learnt about the significance of the scallop shell, which is is an iconic symbol of the Camino de Santiago.
We learnt to sing a song in Spanish about the Camino (Continuando by Jehro), then had a go at some flamenco dancing!
We also made the traditional Spanish soup – gazpacho – which was met with mixed reviews!
The week ended with our annual Harvest Assembly and subsequent Celebration Morning; thank you so much to all the parents that came along to celebrate your child’s learning with them.
It has been a really enjoyable end to a fantastic first half term. Well done, Year 5, and have a well-deserved half term!
