Year 5

Sierra Leone

We are delighted to announce our latest link school is in Sierra Leone. It is called the New Life Christian Preparatory School Waterloo. We currently have a group of children (School Partnership Leaders) who are very excited to start building a strong relationship with our new link school. This year, we are looking forward to collaborating on projects together. 

2020- 2021 Collaborative Projects



Introducing New Life Christian Hope School to the Year 5 children. They will be shown a video message from the New Hope children, introducing themselves and giving a tour of their school. The video will represent a typical day in their school. They will also send a video, in return, introducing St Francis de Sales.


Check out the pictures sent from New Life Christian Hope school below:

A Message for Year 5 from New Life

Year 5 children will complete a study of the location of the New Hope Christian School. They will explore the culture, traditions and economy of the country. They will then create a video message to the partner school discussing their findings and comparing and contrasting their similarities and differences. 



Children will complete a generation’s project with New Life. Pupils will investigate the relationships between younger and older generations in their own communities. They will then send their findings to children in New Hope and ask them how they view different generations in our own community. Children will challenge preconceptions that they may have and then reflect on these views together once they have completed their findings. They will compare and contrast their findings.
