Peter Dickinson’s Problem Solving and Reasoning Club

Children from St. Cecilia’s joined some of our Year 5 children to attend Peter Dickinson’s Problem Solving and Reasoning Club. The children spent the afternoon being challenged to improve their fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills by exploring a range of mathematical problems. There are seven sessions altogether and the children are loving it!!!

[Year 5] Coffee and Cake Day

Last Thursday we used our baking skills to make some delicious cookies to sell at our ‘Cake, coffee and Pink Day’ on Friday. We were doing this to raise lots of money for Macmillan and Cafod. The whole school managed to raise a fantastic £1153.80.

Well done everyone!


[5RD] Basketball

Our current PE topic is Basketball. We are practising dribbling, passing and shooting. We are not quite at Olympic standard yet, but we are getting there!


[5PM] Year of Mercy

As part of the Year of Mercy we led a Collective Worship to pray for imprisoned people around the world. We also learnt about the life and example of Oscar Romero and wrote letters to him in class.
