Science Fair Term 4: St Martin’s hosted a Science Fair to celebrate Science Week. There were a range of fantastic stalls, including those set up and run by children from the Kaleidoscope Schools. During the day Year 5 children from all the Kaleidoscope Schools attended the Fair and took part in a workshop run by Space Detectives. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and we would like to thank all the staff from the Kaleidoscope who helped make it possible. 


Year 5 Easter Performance March 2018:  We had lots of great feedback following the Year 5 classes Easter Performance. The children performed 3 songs, read Easter poems and the Easter story and shared the meaning of the Easter symbols. They also read out space poems, presented space homework and performed a ‘space rap’.  After the performance the children invited their parents and carers back to their classrooms to share their work and Easter biscuits which had been made by the children.

2016/2017 EVENTS:


Year 5 Visit to Churchill Secondary School: A visit to Churchill School end of June, enabled our Year 5 children to experience a number of lessons in a secondary school. Children made spinning models in Science, tried coding with computers and wrote a descriptive text. On a lovely sunny day, we also got to use the quads and field for some sports activities. 


Year 5 History Topic: During Term 6, our Year 5 classes will be learning about the effect of WWII on Worle. Two Schools were evacuated from London to St. Martin's in 1939 and we have recently uncovered the air raid siren which was mounted on the School's roof.

If you or your family have memories of the War which you are able to share with us, particularly stories or objects of interest such as rationing books or photographs, we would be really grateful if you could get in touch with a Year 5 member of staff. Alternatively please leave your contact details with the school office. We would particularly like items from the local area and will be

displaying what we have learnt during Term 6. 


Year 5 visit to Worlebury Hill Fort: On 4th May, children in Year 5 walked from the School to the Hillfort where staff from Heritage England explained the Iron Age history of the site, which is over 2,500 years old. They learnt about how the site is in danger of being slowly destroyed by tree roots and people taking stones from the ancient walls. They also participated in a range of activities, including grinding flour, making bread, building the wall of an iron age house and making coins.


Year 5 Easter Performance:  On the last day of Term 4, the Year 5 classes put on their Easter Performance to parents and carers.  The children performed a variety of hymns and songs relating to Easter. They also read extracts from the Easter poems they had written in class. They also put on a shadow puppet show covering what they had learnt at the Big Pit Educational Visit, using the puppets they had made in class. The show also included other topics the children have covered this term. Afterwards, parents and carers were invited to stay for refreshments and homemade Easter biscuits which the children had helped to bake. Thank you to all the parents/carers who were able to come along.


Explorer Dome Visited St Martin’s: At the beginning of Term 4, Year 4 and 5 pupils enjoyed another great visit from Explorer Dome who explained ‘Sound’ to Year 4 and ‘Light’ to Year 5. The group gave us a fantastic explanation of how our senses work and left a memorable impression. 


Thursday 17th November: Year 5 classes RE Educational Visit to Bristol to include a mosque in Easton, Bristol and Asian Supermarket  (details sent home).
