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.
