Visit to St Thomas More Church

The year 5 pupils visited Saint Thomas More Church in Knighton to look at where and how Christians worship. The children of Saint Thomas More Primary School showed our children round the church. It was an interesting and fun way to learn about the Christian place of worship and other artefacts.

Viking Day

The Year 5 children were visited by a Viking on Comic Relief Day this year! As you can see they had great fun whilst learning all about the Vikings. Learning is much more fun when you can actual take part in the history you are learning about.

Mini Police

Miss Neale’s class have been taking part in a pilot Mini Police programme. The aim of the programme is to build a sense of responsibility and respect for others through taking care of others and ourselves. As you can see they have caps and Hi viz jackets, notebooks and pride in what they are doing. They have been learning about anti-bullying, self respect, relationships and have also visited Abbey House Care Home. A police van has visited and it is hoped that some police dogs will be making appearance too very soon.

Henry Moore

In Art, Year 5 children have been studying Henry Moore and recreating their own models. They have then used digital art to impose these onto our school grounds.


The children enjoyed a boxing session where they learnt 2 different types of punching and played games that tested their reactions and quick feet!

Studying forces

In Science, Year 5 pupils have been studying forces. In this lesson, there were investigating how and why different shapes travel through water at different speeds.
