Year 5 Welcome Mrs O’Shea

This week we have welcomed Mrs O’Shea to Year 5. She has been teaching us how to write adventure stories and got us to think carefully about our sentences. We have particularly enjoyed including show not tell in our writing to describe our characters’ thoughts and feelings. We are looking forward to showing you some of our published pieces soon!

Also in Year 5 this week, we have been learning about martyrs. We started learning about this at Alton Castle where we were taught about St Jose Sanchez Del Rio. St Oscar Romero has been a focus for us in our RE lessons. We have looked at his life and explored how he lived out Jesus’ teachings in the Parable of the Good Samaritan.

Spring Project – A call to serve

Following our Vocation assembly on Monday the children have been set their Spring Project. The letter below has been sent to all parents via email to explain what the children’s task is in more detail.

I cannot wait to see their projects on their chosen person and hear all about the reasons for their choice. The children had some fantastic ideas in the assembly of people they could choose and demonstrated a fantastic understanding of following a call to serve.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in contact,

Mrs McGrath
