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.  

National Space Centre - Leicester

On Monday 25th June 2018, Year 5 went to the space centre. It was fascinating and we learnt lots. The planetarium was the best part of the day! We climbed right to the top of the rocket and it entailed us to go up and down 288 steps :O

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...
