Welcome to the Year Five Class Page

Welcome to Year Five! I am delighted to be your teacher this year and I am looking forward to getting to know you all better. We are going to have an amazing year together in Year Five; learning lots and having huge amounts of fun! This term will be very exciting for us as we will be learning about a brand new topic - Journey to the River Sea: The Amazon Basin. This topic will last across the whole term and will be examined across the curriculum; but especially in English and Geography. I can’t wait to get started! J      Miss Smith

Solar System Explorers Homework Projects

We have been making Christmas tree decorations for the Sacred Heart Tree! The theme is homelessness, so we wrote prayers for homeless people in our county, that might be helped by the charity we supported this year - Herts Young Homeless.

Science - Solar System Explorers

We had a visit from The Astronomy Roadshow!

As part of our learning about space, we created a scale model of the planets in our solar system. We thought about which pieces of PE equipment could represent the various sizes of planets. In order to represent the distances between the planets, we used one footstep to show 16 million km!

Music - The Gift of the Nile

We have been enjoying Reciprocal Reading!

KS2 Charity Day - Friday 11th November

This year, we chose Herts Young Homeless as the charity we would like to support. They are a local charity, who provide free services to 16 – 24 year olds who are homeless or threatened with homelessness. In the morning, we thought about pre-conceptions of what it means to be homeless and learnt about the 'hidden' homeless people in our county. In the afternoon, we participated in a Talent Show!

Science and Computing

On Monday 10th October, we had the opportunity to participate in an Animation Workshop with Neill from ComputerXplorers. We used our learning about life cycles, from our Science lessons with Miss Smith, to plan a stop-motion animation to show the life of a frog. Neill taught us how to use special cameras to take multiple photos of our models, which could be put together into an animation.

You can see some photos here, and our whole-class video can be found at: 

Chaplaincy Team

On the 6th of October, we had our Harvest Mass. This was the first mass of the year and was a special time for the members of Year 5 who have joined the Chaplaincy Team. They were blessed by Father Charles, and given special badges. We also collected food for the local food bank and talked about how Jesus wants us to help others for the common good.
