We have started our Collective Worship led by the children. Emily and Elizabeth did a lovely job of starting us off with a beautiful Worship about Hope.

This week we are marking Anti-Bullying Week in school. Year 5 started the week by designing their own unique socks, to represent us all being unique in our own ways. We also took part in a live lesson on CBBC that talked about types of bullying and what we can do to help.  

In PSHCE we have been talking about Nurturing our Friendships as part of our Nurture November calendar. We talked about ways our friendships were like plants that needed to be nurtured and nourished in order to blossom. We wrote prayers in our Prayer journals thanking God for our friendships and asking God to help us to nurture them....

This half term we are taking turns to lead Class Collective Worship. The children will plan, prepare and lead the sessions in class and we look forward to the first session next week. Watch this space for some lovely pictures and videos of us Worshipping God together.

We have been reflecting on the Virtue of Hope and what Hope God brings to us. We heard the famous 'Beatitudes' and thought about how we can live out the Beatitudes in our own lives......

Year 5 Enjoyed watching a lovely song in RE called 'Love Song to the Earth'. It reminded us of God's beautiful World and how we should be 'Stewards of Creation' like the celebrities in the video......

Watch the video here.......

Look at our lovely Creation Wheels; inspired by The Creation Story in the book of Genesis.

On Thursday 27th September, Year 5 and 6 visited mount St Mary's High School for a taster day. They had a chance to try out a Science lesson in the lab, testing substances to see if they were acids or alkalines. They also learned some phrases in Spanish and tried their hand at finger knitting in the DT department. They had a great morning and some even wanted to skip Year 6 to go straight to Year 7!
