Spanish work - 5th June 2020

Did you clap for carers last night? It was so amazing and emotional. Watch some clips on the news if you get chance to.

Art - If you haven't already done so, it would be amazing if you could draw/paint/create a rainbow to show your support for everyone in the community, making sure that they stay safe. See these rainbows that children across the country have made

You can be as creative as you like!

Pray with Pope Francis: At this time it is important that we still find time to pray both by ourselves but also with our brothers and sisters throughout the world. Today at 11:00 on the Solemnity of the Annunciation, Pope Francis has asked that we pray our family prayer, the Our Father, together with him. Details about this can be found here

Please spare a few minutes at 11.00 today to pray the prayer that Jesus taught us. 

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.


Spellings (Year 5/6 and Year 3/4)

Welcome to Year 5!


Mrs Shaw is the Year 5 teacher and Miss Taylor is the Teaching Assistant.


 This is an exciting year at St Joseph's... Our curriculum across the school is now being taught through exciting 'vehicles' - big projects for the children to aim for which will provide excitement, structure and purpose to their learning.


May the Force be with You!


We will be travelling through space in our Spring Vehicle as we design a Space themed ride for a theme park!

In Science, we will be learning all about Earth and Space and Forces. 

History will focus on the Industrial Revolution and advances in transport and in Geography, the children will be studying California, home to one of the most famous theme parks in the world.

In D&T, we will be making rockets and our Art will have a space theme.

ICT lessons will involve designing Space Apps and in Music we will be looking at space themed music along with some of the famous music used to advertise Alton Towers.


Watch this space for photographs of what’s been happening!


In English, we will be reading Harry Potter, finding out more about life at Hogwarts, writing information texts, letters, descriptions and stories.

Our RE units are Christmas, The Work of the Apostles, Lent and Holy Week.

In PE, the children will be learning gymnastics and dance.



Weekly homework will be given on a Friday and consists of Maths (due back in on the next Wednesday) and English (due back in on a Tuesday), including weekly spellings. Our spelling test will be every Thursday. Children should be reading 20 minutes daily and reading diaries will be checked.

Occasionally there will be Science and R.E. homework set as well as independent topic work.
