Welcome to Year 5!
Year 5 is made up of 30 fantastic children, who work hard and have fun. We are a creative bunch and love writing stories, finding solutions to tricky problems in maths and enjoy learning many other skills like learning musical instruments. We enjoy praying together and joining together to share what we know about following in the footsteps of Jesus. We know how to be good friends and now we are in Year 5 we are ready to take on more responsibilities around school and help show the younger children how to make the best out of their time at St Joseph's.
Our teacher is Mrs Tremlett and our teaching assistants are Mr Voller and Mrs Deyes.
Our Special Trust Mass
On Thursday 21st September, we went to Leeds cathedral to celebrate a very special mass with other schools from the Bishop Wheeler Catholic Academy Trust. It was such a special mass that Bishop Marcus lead it, with help from lots of other priests including Father Lawrie.
Here we all are with Father Lawrie after mass.
Bishop Marcus also noticed that it was Eliza's tenth birthday, as she was wearing a birthday badge. After the mass, he came to find us and asked if Eliza wanted a photo, of course she said, 'Yes please!'
Leeds City Museum
We had so much fun at Leeds City museum on Thursday 21st of September. We loved exploring all the different rooms the museum had to offer. We learnt about different animals; some that are extinct, some that are cleverly adapted to suit their environment and others that are just plain cool. We also found out all about the history of Leeds. Did you know Leeds has been a town since the stone age?
One of our favourite parts of the day was dressing up in all the fun costumes. Click the photo below to see some of the best costumes.
Of course the day wasn't just about dressing up, we did lots of learning too!

We are so proud to have so many altar servers at our school. Lots of them are from Year 5, with 11 in total. Here they are looking angelic as always with Father Lawrie.
We are waiting on information from the parish about new altar serving training, we will let you know about how your child can train as an altar server soon.
The time has finally come that we can have our very own buddies. We were so excited on Thursday to be joined by our buddies for the first time. We how we can be a good buddy and we can't wait to help mentor the year one children and help them to improve their reading. We also learn lots of skills too, like listening to others, helping others without giving them the answer straight away and how to make our reading exciting to listen to.
Here we are with our buddies, click the photo to see more.
