Year 5 – 23/06/23

This has been a special week for Year 5, as we had a class pilgrimage to Aylesford Priory on Wednesday. We were given a tour of the beautiful grounds by Father Jed, one of the five Carmelite Friars that live at the Priory, then had Mass, followed by a picnic lunch on the field. We ended the day with a leadership workshop whereby we thought about the qualities of our house saints and how these qualities could feed into the Y6 leadership roles next year. Thank you to Fr Shaun for organising the trip and for accompanying us along with Lorcan and Miss Hilton.

This afternoon, we continued our Science topic on Earth and Space by modelling the solar system using different fruits to show their relative sizes and distances from the Sun. Here are the fruits (and peppercorn) that we used:

  • Mercury – peppercorn
  • Venus – cherry tomato
  • Earth – cherry tomato
  • Mars – blueberry
  • Jupiter – watermelon
  • Saturn – grapefruit
  • Uranus – orange
  • Neptune – apple
