Welcome to Year Five



During Spring Term Two our topic will focus around the events of World War Two; especially the impact that it had on children like us who lived in Nelson. Above are some pictures showing the high standard of projects that we have worked really hard on! Watch this space for more updates about how we are getting on!


We have really enjoyed our space topic and loved sharing all that we have learnt in an amazing assembly during science week. We also received a visit from a real life astronomer who has worked for NASA; who brought his planetarium into school. As part of our science work we also made the moon phases out of Oreo biscuits! Well done Year Five for an action packed half term with lots of learning taking place! 


Below are some pictures of our classroom environment to give you a taster of what we get up to in Year Five!

At the end of Autumn Term we held our very own marriage ceremony to show all that we had learnt about the sacrament of marriage. This included a ceremony which Year Six came to join us for. Our priests worked very hard to create the service, choosing hymns, vows and Bible verses to make it complete. The ceremony was followed by a party, including the first dance! All of Year Five contributed well and it was a fantastic way to end a busy term!

Here are a few pictures to give a snapshot of the day.

This week, Year Five marked Parliament Week by learning all about the Suffragette movement. They were amazed to discover just how different life was for women one hundred years ago!

In response to this, they wrote some beautiful reflections about what they they had found out.

Here are some pictures showing a snapshot of their hard work!

This Half Term we will also be communicating with our Author penpal, Eloise Williams. We enjoyed receiving her postcards and she was even kind enough to send us our very own signed copy of her latest book! We will be sending her postcards related to our local history as well as telling her about the books that we are currently reading. Watch this space for updates!
