Welcome:

Welcome to our classroom. We are very happy to see you and we do hope that you enjoy your visit. This page will be regularly updated with information and pictures relating to our classroom so please keep checking back for new information.


Thursday May 23rd year 5 visited a Hindu temple in Lewisham as part of our learning in RE. We asked lots of questions and found out many interesting things about Hindu rituals and their  religious practices.  We used our experience to write recounts when we got back to school.

In writing we are currently looking at various types of Poetry including Monologues, Chants, Raps, Traditional Rhymes, Limericks and Nonsense Poems and are writing poems both as a class and on our own.

In Topic we are studying Rivers and Water Systems, in particular our own river in London, the Thames and exploring how the Thames was once used for Industry and Transport. 5E has really enjoyed Topic this year and we are looking forward to exploring our wonderful river and how it is used in modern day city life.

Year 5 visited St. Michael’s Catholic College on Monday, 10th June, for taster lessons to experience secondary school. We learnt about pentominoes, electromagnetism and danced in PE. We were to play basketball, but it was raining heavily. We really enjoyed ourselves and were looked after by the sixth form, bringing back presents and a bookmark each!

Thursday 20th June, we’re off to Battersea Park to participate in a 2km run, as part of our health and active school curriculum.

 27th June, we are performing at the council offices at Tooley Street as part of a group, singing ‘Songs of Home’, which we have been learning in music.


Year 5—The Transforming Spirit

 God’s self-revelation is made perfect in us by the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of truth. This truth was promised by Jesus and revealed at Pentecost. Through the Holy Spirit people are formed and guided to become God’s people through knowing God.  Religious Education Curriculum Directory

 Year 5 will learn about and reflect upon the Ascension and the transformation produced by the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. They will learn about and reflect on the lives of St. Peter and St. Paul and learn that the Pope is the successor of Peter.

At Home:

You could help your child by:

  • reading the stories of the Ascension and Pentecost with your child
  • reading about St. Peter and St. Paul and exploring together why they are so important to Christians

Year 5—People of Other Faiths

The Church therefore urges her sons and daughters to enter with prudence and charity into discussion and collaboration with members of other religions. Let Christians, while witnessing to their own faith and way of life, acknowledge, preserve and encourage the spiritual and moral truths found among non-Christians, also their social life and culture         Nostrae Aetate

Year 5 will learn that we live in a country where people have different beliefs and different cultures. They will learn that Christianity comes from Judaism and learn something about Islam, Hinduism and Sikhism. The children will learn what Christianity shares in common with other faiths and learn some of the differences between the faiths.

At Home

You could help your child by:

  • finding out about different places of worship
