Year 5

On Thursday 26th April, St Vincent’s took part in our ‘Walk, Jog, Run’ event to raise money for St Joseph’s Penny and CAFOD. This year, Pope Francis launched a campaign called ‘Share the Journey’, a new global campaign to stand up for the rights of refugees and migrants.

In support of the campaign, CAFOD are aiming to walk 24,901 miles – the distance around the whole world!  It's an act of solidarity to ‘Share the Journey’ with our global neighbours fleeing their homes. During our ‘Walk, Jog, Run’ St Vincent’s completed 729 miles – a seventh of the World’s total!!!!!!! Well done everyone and thank you to those who have already brought their sponsor money in.

We hope you enjoy the short slideshow of our Year 5 children. (15.5.18)

Jodrell Bank Trip

Year 5 had a very exciting and interesting day at Jodrell Bank on Tuesday 26th September, learning all about the Lovell Telescope, the stars and the planets in our solar system.  They learn about the Mars Rover Missions and how to land a rover on the surface of Mars. They also experienced an awe inspiring stars and planet show in the planetarium. It was a great day and the visit has inspired lots of the children to be astronomers and astrophysicists!!  (10.10.17)
