This year, our teacher is Mr Keane and we are joined by Mrs Barton and Mr Simpson. We are ready for a year of hard work - with hopefully a bit of fun along the way!
Recently, we spent the afternoon session with our new 'seeds' in Red Class. We are looking forward to giving them the love and support they need to grow into beautiful 'flowers.' See some pictures below!
Throughout February and March, as part of the 'Year of Mercy', Green Class have been involved in fundraising for the St Joseph's Penny Appeal. They decided to hold a toy sale and fancy dress day as part of 'World Book Day'. Green Class were able to raise over £100 towards the cause, so thank you to everybody for their kind donations!
On Tuesday, the 12th of January, everyone from Green class came in dressed up as evacuees from World War 2. The day was full of excitement, joy and.....a few air raids!
When we got to school, Mr Keane, now a teacher during WW2 times, played a message which told us that Neville Chamberlain had declared war on Germany.
After that we heard the sirens, which meant that that the Germans were bombing us. So we went to the air-raid shelters. We all did school lessons and got evacuated to different classes.
Recently, our class was taken over by a very strict Victorian teacher! She taught us all about what life was like for children during the Victorian times. We got to write with a feather pen and saw all kinds of interesting artifacts! The whole class then produced some artwork inspired by Lowry and some very informative non-chronological reports all about life in Victorian Stacksteads. See some pictures below...
This year we have been making are own games in ICT here are some of them.
