Thank you to the parents that attended one of our two reading sessions. We understand it was a quick tour of our reading progression in year 5 and 6, however hopefully the documents below will support you further. If you did not manage to attend one of our meetings, please use the documents provided for guidance including the powerpoint from the evening. Any further questions, please do not hesitate to send an email. Thank you.
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'.
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.
Thanks to FOSJ, Upper Key Stage 2 had a fantastic day den building even if some were very wet at the end!
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!
To start off the week, we designed and created a merry-go-round in class. We then had great fun playing with them!
A huge well done to our member of St Therese, who out of all the schools in Leeds and South Africa that took part in the Bambinsanani Athletic challenge, recorded the second fastest time! Here he is with Mr Farmer, receiving his 2nd place medal! Well done!
St Therese had a brilliant time on their school trip today visiting Skipton Woods, St Margaret Clitherow Church and Bolton Abbey!
Over the past few months, St Therese have been completing an athletics challenge against a school in South Africa. They have absolutely loved taking part in the activities!
This half term, we are EXTREMELY lucky to have a Cricket World Cup winning player to come and teach us cricket! The children absolutely loved the lesson and look forward to the rest of the term!
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!
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!
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!
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.
The children created their own mini Joe Wick fitness routines and then taught the rest of the class how to do them!
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!
We also designed a canvas inspired by Hannah Dunnett as a class and then created it using prayers created by 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.
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.
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!'
