Year 5 – 23/09/22

Although this has been a shorter week than usual, it has been no less busy.

On Wednesday, Year 5 found out about a very important leadership role that is new to our school. The class are going to be Caritas Ambassadors, which means that they are going to be activists for social change in the local area. As a class, we will have weekly sessions that will equip us with a strong understanding of Catholic Social Teaching and how we can put it into action in our daily lives. In keeping with the new line of our school mission prayer, we are going to develop the tools we need to build a better world.

Also this week:

    • In English, we have continued to focus on building vocabulary, and the children wrote really effective poems about a wolf crying in the night;
    • In Maths, our place value understanding is continuing to grow and we learnt how to count in powers of 10;
    • In Science, we compared gestation periods in different mammals. Next week, we will be looking at whether there is a relationship between an adult animal’s mass and its gestation period;
    • In RE, we have been practising how to navigate the Bible and have started learning about the Genesis creation stories;
    • In PE, we had a our second swimming session;
    • In French, we learnt how to say the alphabet and how to spell our names in French. Here’s the song if you wanted to practise!
