Year 6

World Book Day

We celebrated 'World Book Day' in style this week by dressing up as a fictional character from one of our favourite books.  All the children got into the spirit of the occasion by raising money for charity and joining in with fun packed activities on the day itself.

Follow the link on the 'Parents Page - Events' to see our World Book Day Video.  Year Six had great fun creating it.  There are some budding actors, actresses, directors and cameramen amongst us!

Watch out for our pop up 'Book Sale' in school on the week commencing 23rd March.

Lledr Hall 2015

We enjoyed an amazing week at Lledr Hall. Here is a taster of some of the things we got up to. For more pictures and stories go to our Parent's Page - Events - Lledr Hall.


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.

Mr Lee and Mr McIntyre treated the school to a musical extravaganza today. It was a delight to see and hear so many of our children enjoying playing so many different instruments. All the musicians were reading the musical parts as they played a selection of songs, duets and a solo. The audience of parents, families, friends and children really enjoyed the show. Thank you to Mr Lee, Mr McIntyre and all our instrumental teachers.

We were all suitably dressed for the occasion of Christmas Dinner today. We had a cracking time and thoroughly enjoyed the delicious lunch prepared for us all by Mrs Miller and all the ladies in the kitchen - thank you!

String Instrumentalists from across the school entertained the children today with Mrs Johnson. It was a delight to see and hear so many of our children enjoying playing their instruments.

Well done for representing Year 6 Tevin and Maria.

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!

Children in Year 5 and Year 6 were lucky enough to be invited to record a performance with the BBC Philharmonic and the BBC Choir presented by Becky Want and Mike Sweeney. This show will be aired on Radio Manchester on Christmas Eve at 6pm and again on Christmas Day at 12pm and 6pm.  The children raised the roof at the studios and wowed the visiting audience.

Mr Davis, the conductor for the Philharmonic Orchestra, came to the rehearsals. He was 'blown away' by the singing talent of our children.

Mr Lee, our Musical Director, worked extremely hard to prepare our children to sing on this memorable occasion. It was an amazing experience for everyone involved.

Our Year Five and Six Dickensian Christmas Choir and orchestra members played and sang for an admiring audience at this great Community event. The musicians and singers were truly superb and filled the marquee with beautiful Christmas music.

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

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