Year Five

Mrs Todd is the teacher in our Year Five class. Our PE day is Wednesday.

Class Saint

St Therese of Lisieux. Patron Saint of the Missions. Feast day is 1st October. 

Therese was known for being selfish, attention-seeking and spoiled. Therese wished to become a nun from the age of 3. When Therese was 13, she had what she called her 'Christmas Conversion.' In an instant, she stopped being selfish, became determined to help others and radiated joy. At the age of 15, Therese entered the monastery and achieved her dream. Therese is most known for her 'Little Way' - she spoke of doing small things with great love. Therese carried a string of beads and used them to count her good deeds. She believed it is not the greatness of what we do that matters, but the love with which we do them.  

St Therese, pray for us.

Living in the Wider World: the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, which will help them to fulfil their purpose of making a difference in the world around them. Teaching includes the common good, the human person, social relationships and stewardship. This links to a deeper exploration of the world of work: getting and changing jobs, aspiration and goal setting, gender stereotypes, unemployment and more. This module concludes with teaching about money, in which children are invited to consider what influences our money choices, including God’s call to live generously. Additionally, children will consider why some people have more than others, developing an awareness of fairness and justice.
