Our Class Saint
Joseph was chosen by God as a trustworthy guardian and protector of Mary and Jesus. Joseph was a carpenter he spent his life working very hard. He wanted to provide for his family. As a child, Jesus spent a lot of time with Joseph in his workshop Joseph taught Jesus all about carpentry.
There are no words spoken by Joseph recorded in the bible. However, references made about him in the bible prove he showed a deep faith and great commitment to God.
The feast of Saint Joseph is celebrated on the 19th March every year. The feast of Saint Joseph is celebrated in countries all around the world, including Italy, Malta and Spain.
Feast Day - Saturday 19th March. We will celebrate this in school on Monday 21st March
We will begin this term by looking at the book ‘Journey to Jo’burg’ by Beverley Naidoo. As a class, we will be exploring the various themes running through the text and we will be looking in-depth at different features of writing to help the children plan and write their own setting descriptions based on Johannesburg. We will also be creating our own diary entries and looking closely at non-chronological reports. This text has a relatively complex narrative in terms of its themes and context. As a result, we shall be focusing heavily on the inference skills necessary to decrypt and appreciate the tropes running through this narrative appreciating the profound context along the way.
The Story of Creation from Abraham to Joseph
In our RE lessons, children will be learning about The
Story of Creation from Abraham to Joseph. We will be exploring what it means to be made in the ‘image and likeness of God’. Additionally, we shall be thinking about how we can embody our creation in the image of God reflecting on how our own actions and behaviour can shape this.
Spellings and Times tables are tested on a Thursday and Friday respectively- The children can receive rewards for outstanding results as a result of hard work!
This half-term in Year 3 & 4, we will be enhancing our running, jumping, throwing and catching skills in isolation and in combination. We will also play competitive games.
