Diwali in Y5

Yesterday, we ended our half term with learning about Diwali, the festival of light, and made our very own Rangoli patterns.

We then finished off our Literacy unit on Danny Champion of the World by watching the film . We have loved reading this Roald Dahl classic!

Thank you for wonderful half term Y5 – you have worked so hard! Have a lovely break!

Macmillan Coffee Morning in Year 5

Year 5 had a great time joining in with the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in support of Macmillan.

Thank you to everyone who brought in cakes – we had a wonderful selection!

Lola was definitely our Star Baker with her wonderful ice cream cake concoction! Wow!

We also had hot chocolate and marshmallows to accompany our cake! Yum!

We also had a Bake Off Competition where children designed their dream cake. There were some very interesting designs with some very inventive ingredients (baked bean cake, anyone?)

Well done to Lily who won the competition with her four tiered gingerbread cake design!

Celebrating Creation in Year 5

As part of our Creation topic in RE, Year 5 visited St Francis in our Prayer Garden to have a moment of reflection and celebration for all the wonderful things that God created around us. We shared stories of St Francis and his connection with nature and then used his Canticle of Creation as inspiration to write our own Canticle. There were some beautiful and thoughtful words of praise and thanks. Well done Year 5!

Science with the Wildlife Trust!

This term, Year 5 have the pleasure of taking part in the Wildlife Trust’s Science sessions. Each Friday afternoon, we will be braving the weather and going outside to explore the great outdoors and learn all about animals and their habitats. Session one focused on birds. We had a great time searching for birds with our binocuars and building nests for our feathered friends!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day from All Souls’!

Thank you to all those who came along to and supported our coffee morning! A great time was had by all! Well done to all the Year 5 children who were wonderful waiters and waitresses: I’m very proud of you all!

 

Wands at the ready!

Year 5 kicked off our new text today with a magical bang!

The Sorting Hat sorted us all into the four houses of Hogwarts! We will be working together in these houses (Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, Hufflepuff) in order to earn house points this term. I wonder which house will win this term’s house cup?

We then read chapter one and we’re already hooked. We can’t wait to find out what happens to Harry and his friends!
