Week 4: WB 25.09.2023
This week we have been learning about negative numbers in our Maths lessons. We have also been learning some new VCOP. Mrs Hathaway assures us that we will be masters at the end of the year- but for that to come true we have to show resilience  by persevering, as we begin to get our heads around it. We have also really enjoyed the map work based on our Geography unit 'Amazing America's'. 
It was so lovely to meet the new Father Philip in our start of year whole school Mass. He really engaged with us and help us to really understand the Homily. He even finished getting dressed for Mass during it, so we can see all the parts of what he wears.
1. This week letters went home for our local science trip. We are super excited and can not wait to develop our science skills whilst REACHing through the day to be the best that we can be. Please fill in the attached slip so that Mrs Hathaway has time to organise if unable to drop off or collect.
2. Congratulations to our new class reps for eco-committee and school council. It was a close vote on both accounts, but we know this year victors, we be our voice for whole school matters.
School Council: James and Hannah.
Eco-committee: Tansy and Violet
Week 3: WB 18.09.2023
This week, we have loved creating our own fantasy stories based on the opening to Alice and Wonderland. Mrs. Hathaway loves to read our work out loud, bringing our writing to life. She inspired us to mirror how she brought some our our writing to life by getting us to read our stories to our table developing our prosody.
We were tasked with creating posters, that we used to go on a Co-Creator's March(climate protest). We went around the playground and field and then shared our motivating speeches based on our jobs as stewards of the earth with the class.
Channeling our Virtue of Love, we discussed what makes us special and unique. We talked about how each of us is important and has something to offer. We then linked this to the message from God that we are all made in his image and likeness
Take a look as us reading our own stories to each other below. There will be more photo's to follow....
Week 2: WB 11.9.2023
Our minds were blown this week, when we used the apparatus in our PE lesson. You can tell from our faces that we had lots of fun developing new skills. When it came to balancing and using our strength, it was clear we needed to draw on our REACH values to help us persevere and show resilience as we mastered different skills.
Furthermore we showed our Virtue of Love. In gardening, we helped to clear and nurture new life, whilst loving being outdoors taking in the fresh air. Take a look at our antics below!
Week 1: WB 4.09.2023
Having settled into Year 5 life, we have delved straight into Music learning the song 'Livin' on a prayer' demonstrating our core value of confidence
Not only this, but we have blown Mrs. Hathaway away with our amazing writing in English showing how we REACH in everything we do! We loved seeing how happy Mrs. Hathaway was with our big writes demonstrating how much we already know; she couldn't stop smiling. We are definitely ticking the ACHIEVE box from our REACH values already.
We cannot wait to take on everything Year 5 has to offer. It is obvious we often get carried away with our learning and forget to take pictures; however, never fear we have a plan to help Mrs. Hathaway to capture all the fun and amazing learning we have and will get up to. 
Enjoy looking through a few pictures below, where we demonstrate how we aspire to REACH through everything we do.
