Autumn Term 2020

Outdoor Learning

Have a look at our slideshow to see all the fun that Kirkstall have been having as part of their outdoor learning .

They have designed and made bird feeders and explored the work of the sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy.


Children in Need
Kirkstall looked amazing today in their indigo and raised a lot of money for Children in Need.
Well done everyone!



What a busy half-term we have had in Kirkstall.  It has been different in many ways but the children have been amazing and have risen to the challenges of Y5. 


We are enjoying reading and doing work related to our class text - Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver.

The story is set in the New Stone Age, about 6000 years ago. The main character is a young boy, Torak, who meets and enlists the help of a wolf.  


Harvest Celebration Liturgy 

We recently held a class liturgy to celebrate and give thanks for all the food and good things that we have and to pray for those who do not have as much as ourselves.  The children sang, prayed, read and gave thanks to God.  We also offered up the generous gifts that had been donated to the needy of our community.

Kirkstall Home Learning Spring and Summer 2020


Miss Brennan, Mrs Dyson and Mr Hale are really missing Kirkstall class but hope that they are all having fun at home and doing lots of great learning.


We've already received some photos sharing that learning and we are really proud of everything they are doing -

Look out for the skipping challenge photos, the rainbows and the sunflowers!


We look forward to receiving more photos of all their fabulous work and activities.




 Kirkstall - Autumn Term


Wow!  What a great start to Year 5!  Almost half way through the term already and Kirkstall have been really busy with our Mission topic. 

Our class book this term is 'Wolf Brother' by Michelle Paver which is set in the New Stone Age.  The main character is Torak, a young boy who sets out on his own mission to track down an evil bear. 

We are using the book as inspiration for our own work, particularly writing special stories called Quests, our own versions of Torak's mission.  Look out for Part One of our Quests outside Kirkstall classroom.

In science we have been studying 'Living Things'.  We have looked at Lifecycles and the changes that occur in humans as we get older.  We are now beginning to look at how plants and some animals reproduce.

Throughout this half term, Kirkstall have enjoyed being active learners and taking part in a variety of tasks such as 'Quiz, Quiz Trade' and learning the Roman Numerals song in maths, and Liturgies and Reflections in RE.  Please have a look at us in action in the photos below.

If you'd like to learn the Roman Numerals song yourselves, here is the link:

Don't forget to do the actions though!




We had a wonderful time on our Pilgrimage to St. Marie's Cathedral in Sheffield on 13th November.

Please look at the slideshow of photos from our visit.
