Easter Message from Mrs Houston

Dear Year Six,

it seems a long time since I last saw you. I want you to know that I miss you all and hope that you and your families are safe and well. I hope you are managing to do the work I set and are making sure you read everyday. Remember that lots of work was set which we discussed at length, but it was an enormous amount of work and you will not get it all done - it is better to do assignments well as opposed to the quantity of work that you complete. I will prepare a money project that I would have done in the summer term for you to have a go out where we would have focused on a project called' How to be a successful Welsh Business Man.' These material will be uploaded at the end of the Easter holidays.

 

This is a very special time of the liturgical year as we approach the time when we celebrate Jesus rising from the dead and at this challenging and difficult time we are able to turn to him to tell him all our worries as well as the positives in our lives. 

 

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a peaceful and holy Easter.

God bless you year six,

with fond regards,

Mrs H.

Dear Parent / Guardian,

Year six would like to welcome you to attend their class mass on Wednesday 29th January in our classroom. The mass will commence at 2.30 pm and those who are able to attend and support their children in their faith journey are asked to leave enough time to sign in for health and safety reasons. The mass will be based on the year six current ‘Come and See‘  project entitled ’Sources’. It is hoped as many of the children’s families can attend.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday,

Yours in Christ,

Mrs Houston and Year Six

Dear Parent / Carer,

The children in year six will be attending an educational fieldtrip to Crucial Crew on Wednesday 4th December. The children will be walking to the venue and a letter for consent has been sent home with children that needs to be returned as soon as is possible so that children can attend the workshops relating to the fire and police service to name but a few. There is no cost for the trip and the children will be back by 12.30 so there is no need for a packed lunch. I would be grateful for parental volunteers to help me to walk the children safely to and from the venue.

Kind Regards,

Ms D. Houston

Unconditional Love

A poem written by Lorenzo

 

Love is fun and hugs. It makes me feel liked and respected.

Love is being safe and helped. It makes me feel encouraged and positive.

Love is being supported and cared for. It makes me feel special and proud.

Love is guidance and kisses. It makes me feel comfortable and appreciated.

Love is spending time together and shared laughter. It makes me feel welcomed and loved.

Love is those who provide for my needs and do their best for me. It makes me feel thankful and grateful.

Attendance and punctuality.

Welsh Club at Ks 2

 

The four purposes of the new curriculum for Wales inform our teaching. Our learning experiences enable our pupils to be:

 

  • ambitious, capable learners who undertake research and evaluate critically what they find and are ready to learn throughout their lives
  • enterprising, creative contributors who give of their energy and skills so that other people will benefit and are ready to play a full part in life and work
  • ethical, informed citizens who show their commitment to the sustainability of the planet and are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world
  • healthy, confident individuals who have the skills and knowledge to manage everyday life as independently as they can and are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

 

 

Literacy and Spellings

 

We understand the importance of literacy skills and their use within the wider world.  As part of your child's literacy lessons, they will be learning to spell words relating to specific patterns each week in class.  

 

The children will be tested on their spellings throughout the year. Spellings and test dates are shown at the bottom of the page. The children are expected to learn their spellings in preparation for each test. 

 

Guided Group Reading

The aim of Guided Group Reading is for learners to develop skills to help them read independently and fluently. It enables students to have a conversation about the text and to think in a critical way. It encourages students to use their prior knowledge and experience and apply it to their understanding of the text.

 

Sessions aim to capture and maintain the attention and interest of all learners while accessing a variety of reading skills. 

 

PE

 

PE will take place every Friday.  Please make sure you bring your kit and suitable footwear. 

 

Expectations

 

Bug Club

It is expected that the children use Bug Club to support to developing their reading skills at home. Books have been assigned to each child and can be accessed using under the 'Useful Links' section below. 

 

Mathletics

Children also have access to Mathletics. which is an online learning resource which supports the development of mathematical skills at home. Children are expected to make use of this resource on an weekly basis and work their way through the challenges assigned to them. A link to the site can be found under the 'Useful Links' section below.  

 

Hwb

At St. Joseph's R.C. Primary School, we use Hwb, which is a collection of online tools provided by the Welsh Government, to develop digital skills. Hwb also provides the children with access to Encyclopedia Britannica, should they need to carry out research at home. Tools which support the children in developing their maths, literacy and programming skills are also accessible via the site. 

 

Elements of the ‘My St. Josephs’ umbrella, which was introduced in 2018, are completed using one of the tools available within Hwb.  The umbrella comprises of ‘My Profile’, ‘My Targets’, ‘My Voice’, ‘My Way’ and ‘My Challenge’. These are known as the ‘5 MYs’ and every child’s learning journey in Key Stage 2 will be evidenced through these. 


My Profile’ and ‘My Targets’ are both completed independently by the children on Hwb, using Microsoft Teams. These are to be updated throughout the year as part of their homework.

 

Microsoft Teams (accessed within Hwb and Office 365) is used as our main tool for developing digital skills and facilitating online collaboration within our school. Homework will often be set via the 'Assignments' tab. 

 

A link to Hwb, can be found under the 'Useful Links' section below.
