Year 5

No Outsiders in Our School

Year 5 have been learning about “No Outsiders In Our School” and read The Cow Who Climbed A Tree together. We discussed what made the main character so unique and made her stand out from the crowd.

We discussed our differences as a class and talked about how they made us special.

After we read the book, we looked at the protected characteristics in the UK and discussed how and why these groups are protected by law.

Shrove Tuesday

Year 5 had a fantastic time making pancakes to celebrate Shrove Tuesday. Following a recipe, we worked together to weigh, measure, crack and mix our own Pancakes.

Our favourite parts were watching Mr Goodwin and Mr I’Anson flip them and of course eating them all!

Ranger visit

Year 5 enjoying time with the Rangers using points of a compass and maps to orienteer around the school field.

Visit from Rabbi Jeremy

We learned the importance of Passover (Pesach) to the Jewish people, and how Seder is not simply a meal but a celebration in which all members of the family are involved.

BOB Boxes

The children and parents of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary school have been making bird or bat boxes to raise money for CAFOD.


Shakespeare School Festival

The children in Year 5 and 6 took part in a drama session to support their upcoming performance of Macbeth.

French Lessons

Y5 have been lucky to receive French lessons from Ms Edwards. We have been looking forward to each of her visits to allow us to improve our French vocabulary.
