Welcome to St Felix!

Our teacher is Mrs Turner. Have a look at the amazing things we have been doing!



 In RE this week, we questioned whether the coming of the Holy Spirit had an impact on the lives of the disciples during Pentecost. We worked in groups to show through interpret dance, how we thought the Holy Spirit impacted the Disciples lives.

Year 5 have had a fantastic Autumn term!
We have learnt about mountains in Geography, investigating contours and creating diagrams of mountains and much more.  All of our learning helped us to answer our key question of Why are mountains so important?
In November, both Year 5s attended Hooke Court.

All the children took part in various educational activities that were delivered in fun and practical tasks. The two educational objectives were to learn more about our current science topic of forces and our current history topic of World War One.

Our World War One day certainly taught the children about life in the trenches and food that was eaten during the war. Children walked through muddy trenches, were taught to march, made remembrance poppies, prepared food such as spam, potatoes, cabbage and biscuits that they then got to eat. Many of the children declared an unknown liking for spam! The final activity was experiencing ‘going over the top’ of a trench. It was an exhilarating experience yet taught the children some sombre realities of going to war.

In their science activities they worked in teams to plan and build boats that would float on the lake at Hooke Court. The boats were fantastic and they all floated! Another science activity was plan and make a kite that was then taken outside to test if it would fly or not. The final science activity was again in teams, where the children planned and made rockets. We then took the rockets to a field where the Hooke Court tutors attached a small explosive device to mimic a real rocket taking off. The children then got to see, standing at safe distance behind a fence, their rocket zoom up into the sky. They went so high providing a thrilling end to our science activities.

The tutors remarked on how well behaved the children were and the staff that went on the residential certainly agreed with them. The children were fantastic.

Grounds Day

We took part in Grounds Day.  This a day where we spend time outside in God's beautiful world, looking after His creation.  We created art-work using natural resources.
