Welcome to Year 5

Here is a snapshot of some of the activities the children have enjoyed since returning to school and commencing their time in Year 5

Emotional health and mental well-being…

Hello everyone.

I just want to point you in the direction of a new set of resources on our ‘Learning’ tab dropdown on the website.

If you click on it, you will find a range of resources and documents that contain some useful advice: especially if your children are struggling somewhat during the lockdown.

Please take a moment to have a look at the resources – particularly the information on World Mental Health Awareness Day.

Don’t forget, if we can help – we will do our best. There is usually someone here at school you can talk to.

Best wishes to you all on behalf of all the staff here at St Mary’s.

Mr Day

 

Christmas Carol Service 2019

The Carol Service which was led by Year 5, on the last day of term, was a truly memorable event. There was so much talent on display as the class performed the story of ‘The Little Match Girl’s Christmas’ and linked together all the elements of the service-the outstanding performances by the band, choir and woodwind group, the prayers and the presentation of the posada to the bishop.

Mountains

The class have produced some outstanding work from their research of mountains. They chose which mountain to research and how to present their information, clearly dedicating much time and effort into the research at home. In class, the children presented their information, showing excellent communication skills and knowledge. Amazing work, Year 5!

Welcome to Year 5 Class Page

The Year 5 children have made an excellent start to the year and are looking forward to the challenges ahead. This term, they will think about the question ‘What makes the Earth Angry?’ To answer this question, they will be learning about mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes.

The science topic of Materials has captured the children’s curiosity and prompted lots of questions.

Crosby Beach 2019

Year 5 had an excellent day on Crosby Beach, where they learnt about coastal features, Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’, sea life and wind power. The day was made even better with the beautiful sunny weather.

The Chill Factor

Everyone had lots of fun on our class visit to the Chill Factore. The morning was spent learning team building and survival skills before  venturing into the snow park where the class worked together to build an igloo and find hidden items beneath the snow. To finish the day, much fun was had travelling down the slopes in various ways
