Year 5

Salvation

 

In RE year 5 have been learning about the Christian concept of SalvationWhat did Jesus do to save human beings? They learnt about the 'Stations of the Cross' which depict events in the final few days of Jesus' life.

Warwickshire Junior Book Awards

 

 

Some of our Year 5 children have been taking part in the Warwickshire Junior Book award. They have read the four short-listed titles and voted for their favourites. On 12th July they visited the Royal Spa Centre in Leamington for the award ceremony where the winning book was revealed. The event was attended by three of the authors and the children really enjoyed hearing from them and having the opportunity to get our books autographed. Look out for all four titles in the library from September.
