Our Class Saint


Saint Sebastian



Saint Sebastian is the patron saint of athletes and those who have given their lives in wars and combat including soldiers.


Saint Sebastian's feast day is celebrated on 20th January.


A Prayer to Saint Sebastian


Dear Commander at the Roman Emperor's court, you chose to be also a solder of Christ and dared to spread faith in the King of Kings, for which you were condemned to die.  Your body, however, proved athletically strong and the executing arrows extremely weak.  so another means to kill you was chose and you gave your life to the Lord.  May soldiers be always as strong in their faith as their Patron Saint so clearly has been.



The children in Year 5 this week have been looking at rounding. This has included rounding to the nearest 10 , 100, 1000 , 10,000 and 100,000.They have all worked incredibly and have even managed to look at rounding to 1 decimal place towards the end of the week. To help us with our rounding we have been inspired to sing our song to help us remember those key skills of rounding. I hope you enjoy our performance. Below is also an excellent example of some of our rounding work this week.
