Sharing work with friends

Thursday 16th May


This afternoon, the children from Year 3 and Year 5 had the opportunity to share their fantastic written work. The children, who were keen to share their magnificent written achievements, greeted each other with warm comments of praise and celebration.


What a lovely chance to have our work heard by a fantastic audience. Well Done Year 3 and Year 5!


Saul's Conversion


This week in RE , we have been discovering Saul's conversion during his journey. As a class , we discussed the keywords of transformation and conversion. The flash of light that greeted Saul allowed him to hear the words of God.  We then looked in further detail at Ananias' hesitation at what he was being asked to do.  But with God's trust he continued in his mission.

In pairs , we produced footsteps detailing the challenges Ananias faced, and the courage and belief he had that God would keep him safe. We finished our  session with a class liturgy focussed on our journeys. What a fantastic effort Year 5 !



Year 5 have continued their big focus on spellings this week through a range of activities and games.   We looked at the origins of words, how prefixes can be used and how we can implement the vocabulary into our writing.  Keep up the excellent vocabulary collection. 

All Hallows Transition Morning

This week , Year 5 visited All Hallows for their transition morning. Whilst at the school , they took part in four different interactive lessons in a whole new environment at high school. With excellent behaviour and staff constantly praising them for the use of their manners , the children had an amazing morning.
First the children took part in a variety of scientific experiments , including seeing how long food burns for , using a microscope and using an electrical current to light a bulb. Following this children took part in an English lesson focussing on character description. The mysterious 'Red Scarf' created tension and excitement. The final two lessons involved a maths lesson on constructing a pentagram and a PE lesson performing dodgeball.
