Our new topic in year 5 and 6 is going to be Brazil. The children will fully immerse themselves in everything Brazilian- from dance to cookery. We are going to end the topic with a Brazilian carnival- St Thomas More’s style! The teachers are very excited to get started on this fantastic project and after SATs we will begin our preparations. Tchau!

A busy Spring term in Lyra class!


The children of Lyra have been extremely busy at St Thomas More’s this term. What with liturgies, SATs preparation and talent shows, there hasn’t been any time to dawdle!
We went on a trip to Winchester Planetarium as part of our space topic, and we had a great time learning about our solar system. We also made the most of the hands-on science exhibits…








We also performed the Garden of Gethsemane to children and parents, all the children worked incredibly hard in what was a jam-packed half term. The children and parents thought it was a brilliant performance.

The girls also did a fantastic job in the school talent show, and Sasha, Eliza, Althea and Jasmine even got through to the live final! Emily also did a great job at singing an emotionally charged Birdie song…

We have lots to do this half term and  we can’t wait to update you on all we are up to!
