Year 5 2018-2019

Welcome to Year 5! Please have a scroll through our page to find out what we have been up to...

Fun making Shaduf's! Year 5 have shown off their collaborative skills by working together to design and make their own Shaduf's. A Shaduf is a hand-operated device for lifting water, invented in ancient times and still used in India, Egypt, and some other countries to irrigate land. Typically it consists of a long, tapering, nearly horizontal pole mounted like a seesaw. All their hard work saw Year 5 receive whole class certificate at the celebration assembly on Friday from a very proud Miss Gold! Well done Year 5.

What a thoroughly enjoyable day we had at The Alexander Stadium! Staff and Key Stage 2 Pupils from St Teresa's joined other schools to take part in athletic events such as high jump, long jump, javelin throw, tennis ball throw, sprints and the 400 meter sprint. All Key Stage 2 pupils pulled together in support of their school mates, cheering them on throughout the day's sporting events. We had some fantastic achievements throughout Year 5 on what was a very successful and rewarding day out.

                                                 The children had a lovely time in the Life Caravan today. They learnt all 

                                                 about how to keep healthy and safe, gain confidence, have fun and 

                                                 share ideas and skills. The interactive programme is designed to help

                                                 develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and understanding that children

                                                 need to make healthy life choices.

Year 5 Literacy - Poetic Style.

Pupils have been identifying and analysing poetic styles from a range of poems presented to them by Pie Corbet, John Kitching and many more. Studying features such as the use of Metaphors, Similes, Onomatopoeia, Rhyme, Rythm, Free Verse and Personification helps to give an understanding and appreciation of different styles of poetry. Check out the video below to sample the work of one of Year 5's favourite poets - Valerie Bloom. Enjoy!
