School Council Elections


Well done to all those who took part in this year's school council elections. The standard was extremely high this year and it was very difficult for the children to decide who to vote for. After listening to the candidates' ideas, the children headed to the polling station to cast their votes. The results were very close with only one vote in it! Congratulations to our new Year 5 councillors and chairperson. 


The Ancient Egyptians Prior Learning Quiz 

The children started their Ancient Egyptian history topic by using their knowledge organiser to answer the quiz questions. We have learnt a lot already! 


Catholic Life 

First Holy Communions 


The children of Year 5 all made their First Holy Communion this term and it was a very special day for all involved. The children all looked beautiful and led the Mass perfectly. They really understood that this Sacrament was an important step for them and that they were very close to Jesus. All the staff, Father Faustino and families were very proud of them on their special day. Congratulations Year 5! 








In English lessons we have been reading the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio. We are really enjoying the book already and it has made us think about how we should never judge a book by its cover. In PSHE lessons, we have been discussing discrimination and we have been shocked by the amount of discrimination the main character, August Pullman, has to face. We are excited to find out what happens to him as he makes his way through his first year at Beecher Prep. Below are some more books by the author which you may enjoy reading. Give them a try.



Footgolf Event 


6 of our class went to a sporting event called foothold this week. The children had to use their skills to kick a ball up the fairway and put it in the hole. Despite the rain, all the children had fun and said it was harder than it looks! Well done for trying something new!
