Term 3

'I disappeared on the night before my twelfth birthday...'


This term we will be studying the fascinating tail of 'Kensuke's Kingdom' by Michael Morpurgo.  Using Michael's experiences to write character descriptions and explore the roller-coaster ride that was his childhood. When he was washed up on a desert island, with only his dog for company, Michael's future looked desperate and hopeless. However, after curling up to sleep, he awakes to a plate of food beside him. He is not alone...

Kilve Court - Camp!
This year our class made history by being the first Year 5 class in Our Lady of Lourdes history to go on camp, with other schools from our camino. It was a fantastic opportunity for us to explore and experiment in academic subjects through fun learning outside of the classroom to enrich our learning. We also learnt about being part of a team, leadership and taking responsibility for ourselves. During our time on camp we swung from heights, raced around on wheels and developed new hobbies. For many of us, it was the most memorable time of our lives so far. A great opportunity to build new friendships as well as build upon those we already had.

Term 2

During Term 2 we will be using the inspiring text ‘Wonder’ by R. J. Palacio as a stimulus for our writing. This is a story about a young boy, August, who has Treacher Collins Syndrome. The plot takes us through his very first days at school and we learn how he is treated by others just because of the way he looks. We will go on a journey with August and discover the emotional roller-coaster that he takes as he steps into school life.


We had the opportunity to learn a new skills this week from experts in their field. Indo-Boarding is a sport which involves balance, focus and determination. Top instructors guided us through body positions and a variety of skills to help us maintain our balance on top of the Indo-boards. At first we thought it would be easy although we soon discovered that it was harder than we originally thought. We used muscles that we didn't even know we had just to stay on board! Most importantly, it taught us a lesson in trust and working with people who we would not normally choose to work with. 

Term two was our time to enjoy Forest School. Forest School happens every Tuesday and helps us to experience the great outdoors. It's designed to equip us with team building skills and skills to test our senses in the great outdoors. Our Forest School teacher, Dave, put us through multiple tasks which get us to think 'outside the box'. 
Term 1
To begin Year 5, we will be studying rich and varied world of ancient Maya. We will be using the traditional Mayan folk story 'The Chocolate Tree'  to support our investigations of the civilisation that gave us CHOCOLATE!

Music Week

Our Lady of Lourdes turned into a 'School of Rock (Music)' this term. Our class spent the week doing all things musical...even maths! We loved the opportunity to see how a subject like music could affect all areas of our curriculum and it was a joy to let our creative juices flow. We painted music, studied Picasso, solved maths problems with notation, created drama to classical music, showed off our talented musicians, learnt some ceilidh dances and finished off by creating our own junk orchestra!

Cleaning up Kingswood

After making our school famous in the local newspaper for pro-actively clearing up the litter from Kingswood Park last year, we have upheld our promise and have been out in force once more. We are extremely passionate about looking after our environment and local community and love having the opportunity to give back.
