Relationship & Sex Education Year 6

Today 2 teams from Year 5 and 6 took part in a public speaking contest with the winner of this preliminary round competing in the final. The theme is based on catholic teaching and both teams chose God's world. In what was a tight contest which was won by fine margins; the Year 6 team came out as the victors and will represent St Joseph's against the other schools within the Dunstan Trust on the first week back from half-term. Well done to all who participated.

Our Guided Reading Books for this Year:


Crime and Punishment                                       


E-Safety, Spring 2: Sharenting. Please have a chat with your child with regards to what Sharenting is. I've also attached a relevant video based on today's E-Safety lesson.

World Book Day: hosted by Mr Twit.

Science: Field Study. As part of our Living Things and Their Habitats module the children conducted a field study (from our school grounds) and classified the organisms within the habitat into a field guide.

French: having a conversation and ordering some food in French. This could come in handy if any of our children go on holiday in France one day.

Ancient Greek Wow Day: today we enjoyed activities about our Topic ,Ancient Greece, which the children truly enjoyed. They learned in greater depth about the military tactics form the Hoplites (Greeks soldiers) to the origins of the Greek Gods we read about such as Zeus and Aphrodite. Please have a look and feel free to ask questions at home.

Linked to our Wow Day. The famous military tactic of the Phalanx.

E-Safety. Every half-term we (as a school) deliver relevant and up to date E-Safety lessons based on specific themes. Our theme, for Year 6, is keeping relevant information about ourselves safe when we're online. We watched a video that highlights how people can easily access our key information -such as where we live- by scrolling through our social network pages. Here are some examples we as a class created in order to keep ourselves safe.

We improved our coding skills further today by creating a quiz based on our topic work: Crime and Punishment

Coding in Computing: today we planned a quiz and the children created their own by understanding how to put in a variety of variables.
