Year 5         Miss Whyles    Term 6

Welcome back I hope everyone had an enjoyable half term break.

This term our Topic is, ‘What can we do to help people in our community?’  Linking to our RE topic we will be exploring stewardship and freedom and responsibility in which we will research groups of people and communities that need help and support. We will look at the many charitable organisations that exist within our community; those that are linked to the parish, the school and the wider community. If parents, carers, grandparents work in public services such as the police, hospitals, care home and would like to share their experiences with us, we would be delighted to interview you. Please speak to the office to arrange a time and we look forward to hearing from you!

Our following theme in R.E this term looks at Reconciliation. A network of friendship and relationships enable human beings to live together. When a child’s power to reach out, trust and make friends is diminished, they may suffer the effects for a lifetime. Both children and adults have to discover their ability to reach out and repair what damage has been done. If human beings are to live together in a relationship, there is always need for reconciliation. Christians believe that in Jesus Christ, the world has been reconciled to God.

Article 40 Children who are accused of breaking the law should receive legal help. Prison sentences for children should only be used for the most serious offences.

Keep your eyes open as we complete various activities we will post photographs on our class page to celebrate our achievements.
