Year 5 Home Learning – Easter Week 1

Hello to Year 5,

I hope you are all well and enjoying your time at home as much as possible. It continues to be a testing time for us all, but you know we will all be back in school, hopefully in the near future, laughing and joking and moving on from all of this.

In the Monaghan household, Margot has really grown over the last couple of weeks in more ways than one. She’s now answering to my silly voices – yes I am counting “rarara” as an answer 🙂 She is also crawling now, even if it is only backwards for now. It has been great to see things from her that I would have missed if times were simpler, so I am thankful for that.

I am hoping you are also doing things with family that sometimes there just isn’t enough time in the day to do in a normal week. It is times like these that make you realise how lucky we all are.

I have left some activities again for this week; I am not expecting you to do everything I have suggested but if nothing else, please, please, please have a go at the maths, even if it is just taking a look at the examples. They are really important maths skills that you will need in life.

Stay safe,

Mr Monaghan

Year 5 home learning – 30.3.20

Hello Year 5, I hope this post finds you all well and that you are enjoying your time at home as much as possible. It has been weird for me not to see your little faces every day in school, but I know we will be back to normal before you know it. As I always tell you, each and every one of you are amazing so I hope your family are seeing that at home. Please see attached the home learning for this week.

Much love to you and your families at this testing time,

Mr Monaghan

KS2 Sports Day

We had a great day at our Key Stage 2 Sports Day on Wednesday. The children took part in lots of races and even the parents and teachers took part too! Luckily the sun was shining and everyone had a lot of fun.

Take a look at our amazing art.

 A superb exhibition of art work based on the topics the children have studied this year. Thank you to all who helped put the exhibition together and to the families and friends who supported us today?

Author Antony Wootten visits St James

Children enjoyed their time with Antony today. Hopefully he has inspired some budding writers.

World Book Day

 A great day celebrating books and reading.

KS2 children enjoy Boccia competition

A number of children from KS2 took part in the recent Boccia competition held at St. Joseph’s, with all of them having lots of fun in the process.

For many of the children, this was their first experience of playing Boccia, but you wouldn’t have known that given how well they all played on the day.

Boccia is a type of bowls game, a tactical challenge which involves three members in each team. On the day, St. James had two teams involved, and they represented their school brilliantly.

Well done to all those involved.

Mr. Monaghan
