Year 5/6 Spelling Resource
French - AUT Term

We have covered many aspects of French so far during the first term. One of the objectives was to listen to and understand instructions. Some of the instructions we learnt was to listen and to stand up in a fun game similar to 'Simon Says'.

Science Experiments (Autumn 1)

During our science topic this half term, children developed their knowledge and understanding of properties and materials. In our topic, we explored our learning through a range of activities and experiments. This included a class experiment on solubility and a group experiment on conductivity.

Den Building (Autumn 1)

Thanks to FOSJ, Upper Key Stage 2 had a fantastic day den building even if some were very wet at the end!

DT: Viking Boat Making (December 2021)

Our DT this week involved making a mechanism. We used our measuring skills, our NEW sawing skills, our gluing skills and our mechanical skills! Our Christmas project challenge is to make the cam and follower mechanism into an actual VIKING boat. Competition Time!

DT - Stitching Viking Emblems

To start off the week, we designed and created a merry-go-round in class. We then had great fun playing with them!


We then finished the week designing and creating biomes using recyclable materials!

D&T Week- 12.07.21

This week St Therese have took part in a design and technology week! They took part in two different projects by designing, creating and evaluating different models! Here is what we did:

World Book Week - 11.03

For World Book Week, we have been using the production 'Robin Hood' as our inspiration for the week to design a newspaper report. On Thursday, the children had the opportunity to dress as their favourite characters from their favourite books!

Victorian Day

Year 5 were very lucky to have a Victorian Day where they got to play with Victorian toys, practice some artwork with charcoal and experiencing what it was like to be in a Victorian classroom!

Athletics- 27.11

This half term St Therese have been learning about Athletics in PE! Today, they took part in relay races testing their running skills and how to pass over a baton!

Justice- RE

St Therese have loved learning about Justice this term, here are a few freeze frames of our class showing examples of Injustice and Justice around the world.

Future Joe Wicks?

The children created their own mini Joe Wick fitness routines and then taught the rest of the class how to do them!

Virtues Week

In the second week of term, the whole school took part in a virtues week with each class looking at a different virtue. Our class virtue was Confidence using the book 'The fastest boy in the world'.rnrnWe designed posters to help explain the importance of the virtue confidence and then presented them in a whole school zoom assembly!

Virtues Week

We also designed a canvas inspired by Hannah Dunnett as a class and then created it using prayers created by our class!

About Our Class

During the first week of term, we took part in transition activities to help introduce our class! We also spoke about our targets for this year and things we would like to achieve.

Our Class Saint

We have also learnt about our class saint: St Therese of Lisieux! We created a display using fact file little flowers and then wrote about the teachings we can take away and use in our lives from the story about her life.

The Power of Yet!

We discussed the importance of Growth Mindset as a class and ways we can keep ourselves motivated so we never give up. We wrote inspirational messages to give us motivation when we are struggling to show the message: 'We can't do it.... YET!'

We love to read!

Please do take  look at what the favourite books are in our class and why don't you try reading some of my favourite 5's as well!
