Our Class Saint

 

 

St Joseph

 

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

 

 

 

Class Text

 

 

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. 

R.E.

 

 

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.  

 

Homework

 

 

  • Daily Maths set each day- Monday to Friday
  • Two pieces of homework (Maths or English as well as one appropriate foundation subject) will be handed out on a Thursday and should be completed and handed in on the following Monday.
