As it is the month of Mary 5G decided to make rosary beads. We created them out of pipe cleaners and beads. We have placed them on our dedicated table to Mary and will use them when we pray to Our Lady.
On the 7th March 5G were lucky enough to do some baking! Mrs Walter taught us how to make Egyptian bread. We had lots of fun measuring out the ingredients and tasting our delicious bread rolls.
In R.E. we have been learning about difference of opinions and resolving our differences, just as the disciples encountered difficulties when sharing Jesus’ mission.
We split into two large groups and each designed a picture of flowers. We realised that everyone had a different opinion on whose drawing was better. However, there was no right answer. We simply need to accept people’s opinion and take these opinions on board in our lives.
On Wednesday 18th November, we were visited by some of the Firemen of Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue service. They told us lots of interesting and useful information about fire safety and showed us what to do if we ever caught alight. They also gave us helpful tips on what to do if our homes ever caught on fire. The firemen gave us a tour of their fire engine and showed our class all of the interesting items that they keep on board to help them save lives. We will all be going home and checking our fire alarms tonight!
On the 6th November Year 5 visited the Northampton Museum. It was great fun and we learnt lots about the Vikings, we even got to handle some genuine Viking artefacts! We explored the shoe gallery which contained shoes from as far back as the 17th Century. We learnt about the history of Northampton and we explored the art gallery which had lots of historical objects from around the world.
As November is the month of All Souls, 5G took a walk to St Mary’s Cemetery to meditate and pray for all those who have died. We also stopped at the war memorial and sang thanks to all those who gave their lives for our freedom. We are eternally grateful and you will always be in our thoughts and prayers.
In Maths we have been learning about metric units of capacity. We measured out water and cordial and created our own drinks! 400ml of blackcurrant cordial with only 100ml of water, does not taste very nice! We had lots of fun, and came to the conclusion that we must not put more cordial in than water!
