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.

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

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.
