Class 12

A warm welcome to Class 12!

We have an exciting and new curriculum in Year 6 with daily Mathematics and English lessons and interesting topics to make our curriculum exciting. Our aim in Year 6 is to continue to make the curriculum fun, practical and relevant for every child. The year will end in statutory tests in reading, writing, grammar and mathematics. We will ensure your child is fully prepared whilst continuing to make learning engaging and relevant. On a personal and social level, we encourage pupils to start taking more responsibility for their own learning and to grow in confidence, independence, problem solving and personal organisation. We encourage them to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens – in partnership with you as parents. We endeavour to ensure that the children have a positive and successful last year at St.Patrick’s to prepare them for Secondary School. If we can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Look at St. Patrick’s Year 6 children!
We look so smart!

In RE we have learnt how we know that God is a ‘Loving God’.

We looked at Rembrandt’s painting of the Prodigal Son and understand what unconditional love is.

Look at our writing.

World War One

Some children have made trenches to display in class.  They have been very creative… pipe cleaners, shoe boxes, lolly sticks… you name it – they’ve used it!

And there’s more…

Selling eggs – freshly laid today! Only £1 for half a dozen! Everyone’s eggcited – such a bargain!

Children led a beautiful liturgy honouring Our Lady in the month of October.

We reflected on the qualities which our mother’s bring to us and mothers who are no longer with us.

Candle Prayer

In our RE books, we have dedicated the work which we do to someone we love.

The Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi

Children led a beautiful collective worship, remembering the importance of peace and reflecting on the image. God’s light shines through bringing goodness, even when we are in the darkness and have turned away from God’s light. We feel stronger when we are united and support each other. Peace is contagious.

World Peace Day

Children reflected on those who are less fortunate than us and how we can help those in need.

Class 12 Stay and Pray

Parents and family were invited to a liturgy which was led by the children.

Christ is our Light

Children performed a role play to help them when writing speech. They produced narratives creating atmosphere and portraying characters.

Phase Liturgy

Reflecting on why we are special and how we should use our talents as Jesus would want us to.

Celebrating our Talents

These girls have demonstrated ‘Joy’ and ‘Patience’ by using their talents. Amazing medals – what great achievements!

Crucial Crew

Year 6 children were given crucial advice on how to stay safe.  The police, fire brigade, Northern Electric and RNLI advised them what they should do in an emergency and how to prevent accidents.
