Year 5

Welcome to Year 5.

The children in Year 5 are taught by Mrs McHugh with support from Mrs Lloyd and Mrs Doherty.

In Year 5, we are generous and inspirational, and we respect each other. We work together as a family; we take pride in everything we do and are compassionate and loving and never give up.

Our class saint is St John Henry Newman, and we look up to him as an excellent role model to help us to live more like Christ. We especially remember his important words that tells us that ‘God has created us to do him some definite service; He has committed some work to us which he has not committed to another. We have a mission.’ We understand that Saint John Henry Newman believed God has a special mission for us all. We are made for service.

During this year, we will be thinking about our mission and how we can serve others. We will be focusing on trying to live simply in response to Pope Francis’ invitation in Laudato Si' to “work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us”.

We are proud to be members of Holy Family Catholic Primary school and with the help of our teachers we will be the best that we can be.
