Year 5 - St Patrick

St Patrick

Spring 2024

Religious Education

Year 5 have learned about the concepts of God's love and forgiveness through the parable of the Lost Son. Through reflection and discussion, they have developed the ability to express their own viewpoints regarding the characters in the parable, supported by reasons for each perspective. Additionally, the pupil has honed their empathy skills, demonstrating the power of imagination to understand and identify with the emotions of love, wonder, forgiveness, and sorrow experienced by the characters in the story.

Year 5 have written newspaper reports. Firstly, they analysed newspapers and learnt about
the main features. They looked at different catchy headlines and created some of their own.
Children were taught how to structure their newspaper reports using the following success
criteria: write an orientation paragraph answering the five ‘Ws,’ (what, who, where, when and
why), use the past tense and third person, select formal language and include both reported
and direct speech. We hope you enjoy their reports. Please click on the link below to view their work.

Year 5 have been writing detective fiction.  The children have looked at how a detective story is structured.  They have been creating an atmosphere using descriptive vocabulary.  Furthermore, they have learnt how to build up suspense in a story using punctuation like ellipses and short sentence structure.  Finally, they learnt how to include a 'red herring'. Year 5  have enjoyed writing in this genre and we hope you enjoy these fantastic examples.
