Religious Education: The Lord’s Prayer

We have been learning more about Christianity in RE and today we completed our own versions of The Lord’s Prayer, presented in mini books which we made.  Our aim was to make the words more easily understandable for younger children.

Stargazers

Year 5 have had a great start to the term finding out about their solar system.  They were firstly visited by astronauts Sadler and Berkshire who needed help in locating their missing equipment.  They also discovered how close each of the planets were from the sun and their relative size.  They were amazed at how far Neptune was from the sun!

Fantastic Swimming!

The Year 5 team were amazed this week with the progress that has been made in swimming since September.  Many children achieved their 25 m on their fronts – even 2 members of the red hats!  They should all feel very proud.  On the first week back, the children will be taking part in a water safety session so they will need to bring in a t-shirt to wear over their swimming costumes.
