St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School

Year 5


In Year 5 we plan an exciting and varied curriculum.  In order to introduce higher level reading texts to the children, the majority of our English work is based around age appropriate novels that engage and interest the pupils.  This year we will be using the following novels as part of our English Curriculum. ‘Clockwork’ by Phillip Pullman – a dark and mysterious fairy tale based around the small German town of Glockenheim and its mysterious clockmaker, Dr. Kalmenius and ‘Midnight for Charlie Bone’ by Jenny Nimmo – an exciting adventure tale about a young boy with special powers. 


This morning 5SC presented the first class assembly of our new school year.  The theme of their assembly reminded us all, that this is an opportunity for a new beginning.  They each shared a resolution/target to aim for this year and encouraged all the children and adults to do the same. They reminded us to face challenges with perseverance and a smile!


Well done, to everyone it was a very enjoyable assembly and the children did a fantastic job.

5KO presented their class assembly this morning; the theme 'Our Gifts and Talents' which links to our RE topic.  We had a guest appearance from Ant and Dec as we enjoyed St Joseph's Got Talent and we heard the Parable of the Talents.  The assembly reminds us that we are all made in the image of God and that we should use our gifts which bestowed upon us. Well done, it was very entertaining.
