Year 5 have had such a busy week and it was only four days! On Tuesday, we had an NSPCC workshop to learn all about keeping ourselves safe. We also were lucky enough to have a Microsoft Word specialist in to deliver a workshop to improve our digital skills.

On Wednesday, all of key stage 2 visited church to celebrate the St. Charles’ Feast Day. It was a fantastic service and the pupils were commended for their beautiful singing. Our very own altar boys, Aidan and Ed, impressed everyone as they were helping the priest throughout the whole service.

We started our new Science topic this week: ‘Properties and Changes of Materials’. In our first lesson, we were testing the properties of everyday objects and learned some new scientific vocabulary. Can anyone remember what permeable means?

Finally, on Friday afternoon, we all met with our new house groups (we now have 7!). Together, we made poppy art to remember the fallen soldiers from the war. The children produced some beautiful art – St. Hilda painted rocks to celebrate armistice day.


Have a great weekend! See you Monday.
