Collective Worship Year five – A Prayer for the First Sunday of Advent
“Lord, the light I choose to let into my life today is based on my trust in you. It is a weak flame, but I so much desire that it dispel a bit more darkness today. Today, I just want to taste the longing I have for you as I go to the meeting this morning, carry out the responsibilities of my work, face the frustration of some difficult relationships. Let this candle be my reminder today of my hope in your coming.”
The children will be required to sit assessments in May 2015. I have included examples of these tasks so that children 'can have a go' at these style of questions at home.
Year Five Visit to Cathays Library
As part of an initiative to encourage reading within Saint Joseph’s school, the children in year five visited Cathays Library in the 15th September. The children were able to browse and choose books and then use their library cards to borrow the books. Parents are reminded that these books should be returned to any library in the Cardiff area within three weeks. Many thanks to those parents who helped me supervise the children to Cathays Library, the children’s behaviour was exemplary.
The Particle Theory - Science
Year six wondered how we could make the particle theory easier to remember and more exciting. Therefore we decided that we would make human models of the particles contained in a solid, liquid and a gas.
This was great fun!
Particles in a solid:
Steel, plastic and wood are solids at room temperature. Ice is solid water.
The particles in a solid have the following characteristics: They are close together.
They cannot move from place to place

Particles in Liquids
Mercury, lemonade and water are liquids at room temperature.
The particles in a liquid are: close together, arranged in a random way.
The particles in a liquid can: move around each other.
