St Luke Year 5
Year five recently went on a trip to the National Gallery to explore different paintings by different artists. In literacy this term, they are concentrating on famous paintings and the artists who painted them. They thoroughly enjoyed the day and even had the opportunity to do some quick sketches of paintings by Monet and Van Gogh!
More pen licences were handed out this week for beautiful and neat cursive writing. Keep up the good work!
Our topic for IPC this term is 'What a Wonderful World' and as an entry point each group were required to make a calendar depicting this. Well done to all groups and particularly to Newton who were crowned the winning group.
Congratulations to some of our recent pen licence recipients for their ongoing neat and cursive handwriting. Keep up the fantastic work!
During science week, year 5 had a fantastic time in the science dome. They learned all about earth and space which linked perfectly to their current science topic. They also created fortune ice blocks. Each pair created a positive fortune and froze it in a block of ice. A few days later they then had to find the quickest way of melting the ice to reveal their fortune. As you can see, they thoroughly enjoyed it.
World book day was celebrated on March 7th in Our Lady of Lourdes this year with a host of characters from a variety of books coming to life. Pupils arrived in fantastic costumes representing one of their favourite characters. In year 5, the pupils also had the opportunity to participate in some acting and read to some year 2 pupils. They all looked fantastic and had a great day.
Congratulations to the three latest recipients of our much sought after pen licence. Keep up your excellent hand writing!
