Year 5

 

Welcome to the Year 5 Class Page

 

In Year Five we have a challenging and exciting year ahead of us

with many experiences to look forward to. It will be hard work and expectations in Upper KS2 are high but we will work together to make it interesting and lots of fun.

As the year goes by, we will continue to fill this page with class news and photographs of us involved in a wealth of activities as we fulfil our mission:

 

 

'To have life and have it to the full'

                                                                                               John 10:10

 

If you have any ideas for our website or any queries please feel free to contact us:

Homework Information:

At St Joseph's we realise the importance and value of Homework. The Grids provided each half term have an array of activities linked to different areas of the curriculum. We expect at least one  piece of good quality work each week. Homework books will be handed out on Fridays and should be returned to school for marking by Wednesday morning.

Spellings will also be sent home every Friday to be written out, practised and learnt for a test on Monday.

All children will benefit from reading EVERY evening and their

Reading Records will be checked each day.

It is important that the children continue to learn the times tables as this will assist them in achieving success in Maths this year.

 

 

PE Lessons:

PE lessons for Year Five take place on Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning. The children will need:

a red polo shirt, black shorts (without branding) and black pumps.

 

 

 

 

Shakespeare Schools Festival

 

“To be, or not to be: that is the question.”

(Act III, Scene I) 

 

In year 5 the whole class has been working with passion,

enthusiasm and genuine hard work in order to be part of

the world's largest youth drama festival.

 

This year we chose to study and perform: Hamlet

 

Every member of the class has embraced the challenge. Drama techniques, games and activities have given the children the confidence to perform and brought them closer together as classmates and friends. Art lessons have been enhanced as we have created costumes, illustrated scenes and made promotional posters related to the play.

Closely studying Shakespeare's famous tragedy 'Hamlet' has provided a deep understanding of characters and their interactions within the play. The plot, although complex and challenging has provided an intriguing, mysterious world of ghostly encounters, love and murder for us to explore. We have worked to unravel emotions including: anger; betrayal and revenge in our English lessons and discussed their impact on lives in RE and SMSC.

We have come together as a team, with each member of equal importance, in order to become the characters and bring the play to life on stage.

 

 

On Monday evening the culmination of all this hard work was celebrated at the Z – arts theatre in front of a huge audience.

 

 

Well done Year 5, the performance was marvellous.

You were outstanding!

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents for their unwavering help and support. It is very much appreciated.

'The Visit that could save your life'        Tuesday 5th November 2019 

 

The children spent a day at the training centre learning how to protect themselves against fire and other dangers and what to do in an emergency. 

In groups we experienced the immersive theatre, which provoked our senses with the smell of smoke, heat of fire and the sound of the sirens. In the Emergency Control Room the children listened to 999 calls and discussed how they are dealt with. In the Survival Academy the children learnt how to respond to an unresponsive, breathing casualty and put them in the recovery position before dialling 999.

We are extremely proud of the children as they were fully involved in all aspects of the day. They asked relevant questions and worked together sensibly.

As we came to the end of our first RE theme: OURSELVES

We reflected on all we have been learning this half term. The children led a beautiful collective worship, celebrating work they had completed, sharing Liturgy (Colossians 3:12-17) and prayers they had chosen. They finished by answering the question:     Who am I?

Each one of us is created in the image and likeness of God.

Be yourself

God made you unique and special.

Do not be afraid.

Show you are God's children by your actions.

The Shakespeare Workshop at Z Arts

The drama workshop was an excellent opportunity for all Year 5 children. They fully engaged with the activities and enjoyed learning techniques to improve their performance skills.

Year Five Assembly

Year Five Assembly  2

 

In RE lessons we have been exploring how we are each made in the

image and likeness of God. 

We are all unique and precious.

Year Five presented an assembly to the whole school sharing all they had been learning in class. They acted out a situation in which self-control and making the right choices was necessary. The children helped us all to remember that the most important gift God gave us is LOVE. 

We are all His children and must love our brothers and sisters

as Jesus taught us. 

 

We are God's children.
