Holy Family Catholic School

As Holy Family, we learn, believe and seek to make the right choices, as God's children

We were very lucky to start off our new topic on World War Two with a visit from Mr B. He told us all about the events of WW2 and we had a great time acting out as if we were experiencing the different events. We did stop many times throughout the day to think about all the people who has sadly lost their lives during those tragic times! It was an exciting and informative day!!

Look at year 5, dressed up as their favourite book character - I think they look great!!

We were very lucky and had a visitor from a CAFOD representative today. She told all about a village in Zimbabwe and about how some people's struggle to survive with limited water. We did a little activity that gave us a little insight as to how difficult life would be.  

As part of our home learning project, the children in year 5 have been extremely busy creating lots of different 3D models of what they think the Rainforest is like!

I am super impressed and really proud of all these models - well done!

We have had some very interesting characters visit our class today - a selection of rainforest animals came into year 5! It was a very exciting day and everyone had fun,  being brave, touching and holding animals that they maybe wouldn't get the chance to. The children had a good try at dressing up as rainforest animals - wow, they all looked fab!!

We have  had a very exciting start to this term. As our new topic is Rainforests, we decided to change the classroom into a rainforest! We thought about the features of a rainforest and had great fun working together to change the learning environment!
