St Teresa's Year 5 Class

RE - Year 5 are currently learning about the Creation story. We discussed being stewards of the earth and looking after our community. Some of the discussion were AMAZING!

Computing (Purple Mash) - Year 5 have completed their first lesson of Coding using the useful tool, 2Code. They created different sets of instructions to enable different objects (from fish to footballs) to move.

Year 5 Welcome Presentation

As a Year 5 transition activity, the children enjoyed using a part of their body to create a wonderful display around our school values: Kindness, Trust, Forgiveness, Respect, Love and Achieve

Through the 2021/22 Academic Year, Year 5 will be taught by Mr Tickner and Mrs Price. They will also be joined by Mrs Ware and Mrs Kempton.

If you need to talk to us, please approach either Mr Tickner or Mrs Price at the end of the school day or e-mail us:

To celebrate the end of the year, year 5 have been discussing what they do to relax. One of our children explained how he makes pillows. We were then very lucky that he brought one in to show us. What fantastic skill, well done!

Wow, what a fun day we had! As a fantastic end of term treat, we had inflatables to play on for our play time today. As you can see from our photos, we had a brilliant time.

On Sunday 11th July, 5 of us took Holy Communion at a special mass in church for the first time. We celebrated this in school today with a special assembly that our catechists attended. Don't we look great in our posh clothes for this special occasion?

On Friday 9th July, we celebrated the NHS's birthday by having a rainbow day. We thoroughly enjoyed dressing in the brightest colours we could!

Also on Friday 9th July 2021, we celebrated England reaching the final of the Euros Football Tournament. We played Beat the Goalie against Mr. Fitzpatrick, we knocked down England players skittles, we made England flags to help us watch the final, we threw balls at a target and played a game of football. We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon in the sunshine.

Even Bryn the dog enjoyed ice-cream day!

Wow, we were so lucky! The children of St. Edward's had a really yummy afternoon on Wednesday, being bought an ice cream each from the ice-cream van!

Each one of us could order our own ice-cream or ice lolly: we really enjoyed them, they were tasty!

On Tuesday, year 5 continued their Linking journey with St. Peter's in Sittingbourne. We created "curiosity heads" containing all the questions we wanted to find out about our linking partners.

Now, we will wait for St. Peter's to send them back with their answers - we can't wait to find out!

Year 5 had a fantastic Sports Day on Monday 5th July: the sun shined and great fun was had by all. Everyone got to participate in 6 different activities: running, egg and spoon, throw a ball in a box, long jump, water fill challenge and javelin. We then lined up to watch the parents racing: these were most definitely the funniest of the day!

Wow, what fun! Year 5 really enjoyed the Treasure Island Performance that we watched today! It was very funny.

On Tuesday, year 5 were looking at similarities and differences between the people who make up our community. We enjoyed knowing that our linking class at St Peter's were doing the same thing at the same time.

Year 5 really enjoyed writing poetry on Monday: look at some of our amazing poems about some difficult pictures!

We have really enjoyed our Linking Network lesson with St. Peter's this week: we thought about what makes us ourselves then created images to show this.

Miss Springhall visited us again this week, to help us continue our learning around area.

This week for our Linking Network session, we thought about being together. We wrote poems to share with St. Peter's and Mrs. Rowse created a display out of their work and ours, all linked together.

Year 5 have been investigating what makes a fair test: our hypothesis was that absolutely everything had to be the same.

We discovered that actually, to get a result and to be able to draw a conclusion, we needed just 1 variable to change. This way, we knew whether that variable created the effect we were looking for.

On Friday, we had a visit from Miss. Springhall from Highsted School, in Sittingbourne. She is going to be working with us over the next few weeks to teach us about area; we will also be looking at discussing how this leads to floor plans for buildings.

We've had great fun this week, getting out in the sunshine and learning a bit more about each other.

We have started an exciting new project this term: The Linking Network. We will be linking with year 5 at St Peter's in Sittingbourne, sharing work and getting to know the children a little bit better using video calls.

Here are some of our "hello" messages that we sent over.

Wow, what a busy return to school we have had after half term! At the beginning of the week, we were learning a new story called Voices in the Park: if you ask us, we can re-tell it to you with actions!

Recently, year 5 have been isolating. Take a look at our amazing posts on Seesaw below.

Year 5 have had great fun investigating tenths and and hundredths today. We had 1 lump of Play-doh which we split into 10 equal size pieces to make tenths. We then split each of those tenths into ten, giving us 100 pieces: this is how hundredths are made! 1 piece, split into 100 equal pieces; each piece is written as 0.01

Year 5 had a great time for Number Day today. We wore our own clothes and linked them to number; we put together Buddy's key from the NSPCC (which only took us 23 minutes and 34 seconds!); worked as a team to think mathematically (ask us about the sides of a dice - we got very frustrated about this, but figured it out eventually!); and investigated prime numbers before finding them on the field.

A fun, fantastic day was had by all.

Year 5 have been learning how to find specific scripture references; we also learnt about Doubting Thomas, acting out the scripture and thinking about the significance of it.

Year 5 have been learning to re-tell a story using actions to help us remember.

If your child won't show you the story, visit the "Videos" page of our website, , to watch a recording of us doing it.

Wow, what an amazing response we had!

To support us in making in our school beautiful, we asked for photographs of our children's sporting achievements and you didn't disappoint!

A video to share with all my friends at St Edwards

Today, I would like to share a video of Jack playing a song that he leant on his drum kit. We are all really proud of you and I know that everyone watching this video, will give you a big clap at the end. Amazing work.
