Year 5

smileyHappy New Year Everyone.


Mrs Doyle, Mrs Craven and Mrs Flight together with Mr Mulholland and Mr Maloney who are on placement from Hope University would like to say...


Welcome back. It might be dark in the morning but we are ready for a great new term in Year 5. We are looking forward to learning lots of new things and building on the great progress made last term. Perhaps the most talked about topic will be Earth, Sun and Moon. It's a topic that generates great excitement and we inspire  future astronauts. With Tim Peake sending messages from the ISS, these are exciting times for British space exploration.  

There will be a lot of problem solving in Maths as we apply the basic skills we worked so hard to master last term. 

In English, we will read a beautiful book about the plight of a native American child called 'Soft Rain'.

The Great North is our focus in Geography. Be prepared to find out lots of new facts about this special area of the UK. 

We look forward also to Father Andrew visiting again. He will guide us in prayer and strengthen our love for God and one another. 


Get ready for a busy time ahead.



Fraction Time!

Can you see any differences between these two life cycles? Can you find out if worms lay eggs?

Where is this term going?  Half term is fast approaching and we look forward to meeting with all of your parents next week.



We have been learning about people who give their lives to serving God and others. We read the story Maximilian Kolbe. Could you tell someone at home what he did that was so special?

Week 3


It has been another busy week. Everyone is working hard and Mrs Doyle, Mrs Craven and Mrs Flight are delighted with your efforts. In Science, the tiny caterpillar was the focus of our attention. In RE, we have been reading St Paul's letters to the Colossians and finding out how we can be one of God's Holy people. In English, we are still not sure if King Arthur really existed. There is much to debate. 

Remember that Friday is PE day. 


Finally, congratulations to the newly elected school councillors Ella, Heidi, Jay and Tom who will do a great job in representing the Year 5 pupils. 

Welcome to Year 5  no


What a fantastic start we have had to Year 5.  This week have been learning all about each other and the holidays we have just had. We know you are all looking forward to working hard and rising to the challenges of Year 5- a very important year!


We hope you have had a relaxing weekend as we have a VERY busy week planned.  Don't forget PE is on Friday afternoons so make sure you have your PE kit ready to go!


See you Monday, 


Mrs Craven, Mrs Doyle and Mrs Flight
