Welcome to our class page, we are so glad you are here. Please keep checking in to find updated information and photos of the fab work the class will be doing. Mrs. Stockdale and I are thrilled to be with such a wonderful class.
What a great year we are going to have!
September ... September ... September ... September ... September ... September ...
Well done, Year 6, for leading a wonderful and reverent Start of School Mass. You read beautifully, presented gifts respectfully and your singing lifted our hearts. What wonderful role models you are.
Year 6 explored the concept that light travels in straight lines by creating models of light travelling. These models helped the children to explain how we see things because of light travelling either directly from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes. Illuminating stuff! (Groan!)
Year 6 did a stellar job in presenting their new roles and responsibilities to the school and their families. You have inspired us all with your vision on how to make our school an even more active, inclusive and exciting place to learn and play. Your voice matters and we can't wait to hear your ideas come to life.
We're pretty proud of ourselves after our first Year 6 assembly.
Here we are with our roles for this year. We are ready to let our light shine.
Dopamine levels rocket through the roof when Year 6 get to be with their Reception buddies. Year 6, you acted with gentleness, kindness and a great sense of fun that made our young friends feel safe and loved.
October ... October ... October ... October ... October ... October ...
We listened to members of our local Fire and Rescue Service who told us the importance of having a Fire Escape Plan; checking smoke alarms regularly and how to avoid fires in the house. They also shared with us how to be careful around Halloween and Bonfire Night.
Year 6 did a marvellous job of leading the Rosary in each of the classes. The adults had high praise for you all and the children all enjoyed having such wonderful role models helping them grow in faith. It was a lovely way to end the month of the Rosary.
November ... November ... November ... November ... November ... November ...
Year 6 took great pride in sellling poppies on behalf of the British Legion. The whole class took turns in either running the shop or in organising children from each class to come and buy items. Well done, Year 6! It is important that we wear the poppy as a symbol of Remembrance for all those who have fallen in conflict.
St. Joseph's have been fortunate once again to have a tour of the Commonweath War Graves at Stonefall Cemetery with the knowledgable CWGC guide, Elizabeth Smith. We went on a trail around the headstones finding out more about these courageous men and women from around the Commonwealth who answered Britain's plea for help in WWII. We heard stories of heroic acts that left us in awe. At the end, we led a Collective Worship by the Stone of Remembrance.
Eternal Rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
We have begun sewing! We are blessed to have such amazing volunteers who are sharing their talents and patience. In these images, we are practising the skills of sewing with a running stitch and applique.
Our Reading Influencers are sharing their love of books with both KS1 and KS2. How great it is to-be together with other chidren of the school. Well done, Year 6!
Here you will see us using a template to draw the pattern onto fabric before cutting it out. Then we are attaching the pieces together using a running stitch. Our original designs had to be amended to match the size of our teddy models!
