Children In Need

Children in need is a UK charity that has been going since 1980 and has raised over £600 million for disadvantaged children and young people.

We at St Teresa's had a spotty day to remember those who are less fortunate than us and sent a pray for those in need.



 In Literacy this half term we are looking at myths and legends. We will be writing our own myth/legend which relates to our topic of ancient Greece.  


In numeracy this autumn term 2 these are the topics we will be covering. Each week there is a piece of numeracy homework that correlates with the topic covered in class.  



Mental Calculations and negative numbers

Rounding to estimate


Comparing fractions.



To end the autumn first term, we created our own rockets to launch into space using all the knowledge we have learnt from science, topic and PE. Here is what we produced...




In music, we have been looking at the planets and creating our own music to suit that planet.

"I chose the planet Mars because its the planet named after the God of War and so I was able to bash the drum really loudly."

"I chose the planet Venus because it's such a calm, cool, soothing planet to make music for."


Take a look at the fun we had...


Play Lead


A number of Year 5 children were involved in Play Leader Training. They are going to be a support in the infant classes during lunchtime this year! Well done all.




In R.E we have been looking at the story of Cain and Abel. The two brothers were jealous of each other therefore the story didn't end well. Can you infer how the story ends...


We have been looking at the Ten Commandments and played a game to see if we could work out which commandment had been broken. Looks like fun!



In literacy we have been looking at newspaper reports. In groups we have been discussing the structural features and language features.

Mrs Lal and Miss Siddique wish all of year 5 a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year. See you back in 2018 for lots more learning


Our topic this half term is...

Black History Month

 As part of black history month, the whole school had a non school uniform day where we were able to wear clothing from our ethnic origin country or the national colours from the country/flag.

Living in Britain, we are lucky to have the British values that allow us the freedom to dress as we wish and to be tolerant of others as we understand that everyone is a unique individual.



 In R.E we have been looking at why the disciples chose to follow Jesus. After listening to a few stories, we decided to hot seat each other in the character of one chosen disciple.  


Even though at St. Teresa's we follow the Catholic religion, we still learn and respect other religions. Today (28.9.17) we went to a Hindu temple - Shri Venkateswara (Balaji) Temple in Tividale. Here's what we saw and learnt...
