The latest message from your teachers....

Week beginning 13th July

Dear Year 5,

Well done!
You have come to the end of the strangest school year that any of us have ever known.  We are so proud of you all!  Please can you remember to say a big thank you to your grown ups for helping you during this long time of learning at home.  The height of your sunflowers is an indicator as to how long this time has been.  How tall have yours grown to?  Look at the photograph attached of Mrs Terry’s sunflowers- they are now even taller than she is!
We have missed you all so much and now September is on the horizon and we are looking forward to welcoming you back as our Year 6.  In the meantime, have a wonderful, happy and fun summer.
See you all soon.
Love and every best wish from the Year 5 Team xxx
Mrs Gordon, Mrs Carney, Mrs Carter and Mrs Terry

Ideas for worship

As you think about making time each day for worship, you might start by making yourself a prayer table or corner – somewhere that you can be still, comfortable but still, not distracted by anything going on around you.

You might want to set up a “table” – a real one or the top of a chest of drawers or even an upturned box, cover it with a cloth if you can and maybe place your Bible on it, maybe your Rosary beads or a crucifix if you have them and if Mum and Dad are happy, a candle which you can light as you pray.

Plan your worship time…

How will it start – maybe lighting the candle, asking that the Light of Jesus represented by that candle may be in your heart…

You might want to start with a prayer – use our School prayer book for inspiration and ideas.

Read a passage from the Bible. The Gospels are always good to read. We are still in the season of Easter and the Readings this year come from John’s Gospel.

Take time to stop and think about what the Gospel writer is saying to you about Jesus and maybe decide on soemthing that you are going to do to change the way you behave or think about things to match Jesus’ teaching.

You could sing a hymn that you know or find one on the internet to sing along to and take the time for prayer.

Pray for yourself, for your family, for your friends. Pray for our doctors and nurses and all those who are working so hard now to keep us all safe and well. Pray for our world.


Prayers for use at home

Transition to Year 6

This week in school we would have been enjoying our Transition Day, a chance to be in our new year groups with our new teachers. We cannot do that in person but here is the PowerPoint to support your home learning activities around the transition. Please don’t forget to bring your completed learning booklet back to school in September for your new teacher.
