Year 6

Have a Holy and Happy Easter - God Bless

The Easter Bunny and his helpers made a welcome appearance in all the classes this week.  They did a great job!

Year Six enjoyed taking part in their final sponsored egg roll event at St Joseph's this week.  There was much fun had by all with good sportsmanship evident throughout. 

Well done Trudy - our Year Six Winner 2018.

St. Joseph's Feast Day 

We enjoyed St. Joseph's Feast Day today by celebrating Mass with the rest of the school.  We raised the roof with the tremendous singing and even managed to bring the sun out on this bitterly cold day.


We then braved the weather at our tennis tournament raising more money for our St Joseph's Penny Appeal.  Thank you to all who took part either by playing or supporting your peers.  It was a nail biting finish with two winners this year - Freddie and Finley - Well done boys.

Our Lenten Journey 2018

As we entered the season of Lent together, we began our path towards Easter as the time of change and renewal in our Church calendar. We took part in our Ash Wednesday service to mark the beginning of our 40 days of prayer, fasting and good works.

Our fundraising activities to support the Diocesan ‘St Joseph’s Penny’ appeal now well underway offering yet again many fantastic ideas to support and promote this most worthy of causes. As we journey through Lent together, pupils have been participating with Sister Cecily at Stations of the Cross on a Wednesday, organising mouth-watering cake sales and returning their St Joseph's Penny Boxes.

Thank you for supporting our St Joseph’s Lenten Appeal in 2018.

Thanks to you we can continue to make a difference to our communities!

Litter Picking

All the children at St Joseph's had some time out of class to help with a spring clean of our school environment. Year 6 did a fantastic job of helping Reception to clear all the litter from the Infant playground. Well done everyone for helping to keep our school and local community litter free.

LEGO ROBOTS Computer programming is something the children always enjoy. Today we were treated to programming lego robots. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and we look forward to the robots coming back soon.

World Book Day

Year Six celebrated 'World Book Day' in style this week by dressing up as a fictional character from one of their favourite books.  All the children got into the spirit of the occasion  and joined in with the activities on the day itself.

We also had fun perusing the pop up book sale that took place this week.  There were many books being shared and tempting our purse strings!

We had lots of fun playing in the snow today. We were reminiscing of our time at Lledr Hall and made some super snow sculptures.

World Book Day Competition

The end result for our competetion entry was truly superb! It was wonderful how the whole school worked together to create our 'Flying High with Reading' display - special thanks go to Miss Kenny and Mrs Ormrod.

Well done and good luck St. Joseph's.

Year Six did a wonderful job at enthusing the rest of the school in preparation for World Book Day.  They worked in teams in class and presented their ideas to their peers and the other classes about a forthcoming competition.

Good Luck St. Joseph's

Years Five and Six have been staying after school to develop their debating skills in preparation for their first competition next week.  The level of skills required for debating has increased dramatically over the weeks and they are now ready to embark on their first debut.

A Blast from the Past

We were thrilled to welcome some past pupils back at St Joseph's this morning.  As part of a transition activity organised by All Hallows, the pupils - ranging from Year 7 to 11 - came to talk with our Year Six class. They openly shared their own experiences of high school, brought some examples of work to show and answered any questions that the children had.  Year Six thoroughly enjoyed the session and took a lot from it.  

It was wonderful to see how well our past pupils are doing - thank you so much.


Today Year Six were involved in a Mathematical Problem Solving Activity - Tetrahedron.  It was organised by All Hallows as part of their transition activities.

Mr King and the Year Six teachers were blown away by the teamwork and discussions that took place during the session - Well done!

Year Six were thrilled to welcome Father Alfred Rebello into class today where he was interviewed about his reasons for being a priest, his commitment of service and his day to day life in the parish.  We thoroughly enjoyed this visit and got a real insight into the life of one of our priests. 

Thank you so much Father Alfred.

Year Six have come back to school refreshed and ready to learn after the Christmas break. They have hit the ground running and are working hard already.

Homework Grid Year Six - Spring One

Year Six were treated to their first rugby session this week. Despite being cold, wet and muddy all the children got stuck in and enjoyed putting into practice the new skills learnt.

At the end of this busy term at St. Joseph's, Year Six have worked hard and played hard throughout!  You have attended various events over the past few weeks and have represented our school extremely well.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful New Year - God Bless.

In Design and Technology this half term the children have been creating their own Christmas Stockings. The children have sewn their stockings (using various techniques!) and have successfully produced work of a high standard.

We also framed our watercolour paintings to take home as an extra gift to our loved ones at this special time of year.

Below are the masterpieces with their proud owners.

We visited Cornerstones today to deliver £200 raised at our Christingle Service.  Our three Year Six children represented St Joseph's wonderfully handing out sweets in the centre and wishing people a Happy Christmas.  You all truly brought a smile and made a difference to the people here in Salford - Well done.

Year Six all ready for their final Christmas Party here at St. Joseph's. Everyone in the class was invited to the social event of the year in exchange for hard work and kindness and courtesy shown by all - Well done Year Six!

Everyone had a fantastic time at Salford University's Pantomime - A Christmas Carol. It really was an exciting show and all the children were enthralled.

Year Six sang for an admiring audience at the Community Cafe this week - a wonderful community event. The singers were truly superb and filled the marquee with beautiful Christmas music and great festive cheer.

Year Six had an enjoyable Transition Morning out at All Hallows today where they were treated to some Christmas Crafts.
The children in Year Five and Six are beginning to learn the techniques and rules for debating from our wonderful mentors from Manchester University by attending an after school club.  Watch this space for future competitions that we will be involved in.  

We had a visit today from an artist who taught the children how to do watercolour art. The children loved the session and have some lovely paintings to bring home. A huge thank you to Mr Templeton from all of Year 6.

Year Six had great fun raising money for Children in Need today -thank you for all your kind donations.

Year Five and Six took part in a huge launch for

'Debate Mate' at Manchester University.

The debating club begins in school on Wednesday 15th November.

This is an exciting, challenging opportunity to learn a skill that will benefit pupils now and in the future.


During the run up to Bonfire Night, we have to make sure that all the children are safe. This year we had a visit from the fire service and the police, who explained how we can stay safe and let us explore their fire engine.


Homework Grid Year Six - Autumn Two


Today the children in Year 6 had a visit from the NSPCC. We were looking at what we should do if we feel we need to talk to anyone and how to keep ourselves safe.

Year Six were asked to represent using freeze frames their interpretation of

'What is Love?'
