Welcome Back Year 5 and Happy New Year!

The children have settled back in well to the rigours and exciting challenges of Year 5 and are working hard with Miss Whyles.

We have already been busy this term, exploring our focus topic question ‘What was great about the Romans?’ particularly the impressive legacy they left across Europe. So far we have learnt about important gods and goddesses as well as the legend of Romulus and Remus that details how the city of Rome was founded.

We will be looking at the Roman invasion of Britain and the impact that it had on the country and the people who lived there, both from a historical and geographical stance.

In RE we will be thinking about how missions are a part of people’s lives and how others live out their missions through their faith and actions. We will be learning about the work of the Diocese and our Bishop, who leads the community of the Christian faithful.

Article 29: Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities

 Let us pray:

Father, creator of all,

You ordered the earth to bring forth life

And crowned its goodness by,

 creating family life.

Teach us the beauty of human love,

Show us the value of family life

And help us to live in peace

With everyone

Amen
