Another new year has begun!
From all the team at St Joseph's, we hope you have enjoyed your summer holiday spent with family and friends. The children have come back to school with bright smiles and with an eagerness to learn.
A warm welcome from the Year 6 team this year to all families and friends of the pupils. In the Year 6 team this year, the main classroom teacher is myself (Miss Collier) and we have the pleasure of receiving support from our teaching assistant Monday to Thursday - Mrs Hawley.
Many children prepare for Year 6 believing it is full of challenges, which is true. However, those challenges are full of fun and laughter throughout the year. As per usual, children will have the opportunity to learn new skills in Maths, Literacy, Science, Geography, History, PE and more. The children will have the opportunity to also develop their speaking and presentational skills through class liturgies and not forgetting the end of year production. The children will have the opportunity to experience new places and develop their knowledge through school trips, including the residential, where the children will grow in many ways.
The questions about SATs have flooded in during their first week, however they have been reminded it's all about showing how wonderfully talented they all are as individuals. Throughout the year, they will be provided with a wide skill set to help them achieve their goals as a team.
Our aim this year is to simply support and guide the children to allow them to blossom even further as young individuals. Myself and Mrs Hawley are always happy to help and always want the best for your children.
Please make yourself familiar on the website with uniform, behaviour expectations and reward systems. When the children enter Year 6, they become the role models of the school and we believe our current class has great potential to fulfil that role throughout the year.
Keep an eye out for this page to be updated with information, news and photos of your children!
All the best for this year!
