This year’s camp will take place Monday 7th – Friday 11th October 2019 at Morfa Bay, Carmarthen, South Wales when the children will have moved up to Year 6.

Year 5 and 6 Author Visit: Thank you to Joffre White - Author, a UK Patron of Reading & Reading & Writing Motivator for his fantastic visit in January. After an assembly with the Year 5 & 6 classes, he did creative writing workshops with our Year 6 pupils to inspire their story writing. At lunchtime he did a Questions and Answers session in the Library - lots of children came to meet him including a huge number of boys who were very inspired by Joffre.
Worle Secondary School Christmas Performance: Year 4 and 5 classes were invited to Worle school at the end of Term 2 to enjoy a fantastic musical performance. They listened to the orchestra playing and were shown many different instruments. Their were also several choirs, soloists and duets performing. It was a fantastic way to end the term and we hope it will inspire many of our young children to develop their musical talents and aspire to perform.
Explorer Dome Visit: On 12th November, the Year 5 classes were visited by Explorer Dome. The children had an exciting opportunity to visit the Dome to learn more about Light. Trained presenters, Caz and Ben, showed the children a range of experiments which demonstrated how shadows are formed and proved that light travels in straight lines.
Year 5 really enjoyed the experience and have now written recounts about their time inside the Dome.
Year 5 African Drum Workshop: Year 5 took part in an African Drumming session during Term 1. The children learnt about and had the chance to play a variety of real African instruments from four African countries during the workshop. It was a great opportunity to learn about these instruments and practice different rhythms and beats. All the children thoroughly enjoyed it.
Year 5 Fleet Air Arm Museum Visit 27th June 2018: Year 5 classes enjoyed their Educational Visit to the Fleet Air Arm Museum, in Yeovilton and were given a guided tour around the museum by 3 friendly volunteers who knew a lot of interesting facts about the different planes. The children took part in a workshop where they learnt about evacuees, made gas mask boxes and took part in a pretend air raid drill. They also had an opportunity to sit in a real fighter plane cockpit, experience the inside of a helicopter and able to go onto the first concord ever made. Some of the children were lucky enough to witness the Royal Navy take part in some flying practice! They all had a fantastic day. Thank you to all of the parents who helped on the day.
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.
World Book Day 1st March 2018: pupils and staff came to school dressed in their fantastic World Book Day costumes. The children were able to take part in a variety of Dr Seuss based activities within school. Thank you to all our parents and carers for your support with the wonderful costumes.
