Year 5

Poems about dreams

In English this week the children have been reading poems written by Langston Hughes, notably one of his poems called ‘Dreams’. Year 5 discussed the figurative language used by Hughes and the images they create in our minds. We took these concepts and created our own poems about dreams. Well done Year 5.

Pentecost Parade!

On Monday afternoon, the whole school took part in a special liturgy to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost. Everyone assembled in the hall  to hear the story of Pentecost and to think about the Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Gentleness, Faithfulness and Self-control) and how we use those gifts for the good of others. After that the children processed out to the field waving or wearing their flames and streamers which they had made in class to represent the power of the Holy Spirit. The liturgy continued outside with prayer and ended with a hymn.

 

Competition winners!!

Earlier in the year, we had a visit from Sam at Space camp. Sam spoke to us about the many wonders of space travel and we were able to experience first hand some of the training an astronaut has to go through. Before Sam left, the children were set a challenge to design a badge that could be used on an astronauts suit. Well done to: Antonia, Alexander, Ciaran, Ethan, Declan, Evan, Ellie, Luke, Charlie, Myles, Alex and Elise who will all be going to meet an astronaut on Tuesday 11th June. Here is just a small selection of the work that was presented to the school office. I’m sure you will agree they look fantastic!
