End of the school year
This has been the strangest school year for all of us here and we are sad that we did not get more time to spend with all of you. As it’s the last week, we’d like you to think about the following questions:
What do you miss about school?
What are your best memories in Year 5?
What are you looking forward to in Year 6?
Do you have any summer plans?
Feel free to send in your answers and we will publish them on the website.
Birthdays around the World- Birthdays are celebrated differently in different countries. Write an information report/PowerPoint detailing how birthdays are celebrated in some of the different countries from the website below. Finally, which country would you want to have a birthday in, based on their traditions?
Patron Saints and Saint Days- There are four patron saints in the UK: St. George for England, St. Andrew for Scotland, St. Patrick for Northern Ireland, and St. David for Wales. Can you find out about a saint and why and how they are still celebrated in the UK or Ireland? When do they think they were born and died? Can you find an image of them? Any other interesting facts? You could research another Saint if you wish. Look on these websites for some help:

When did humans land on the moon? Who was the first person to step onto the moon? When did the first woman travel to space?
