Our class Saint: Saint Maximilian Kolbe


What did we learn last half term?

In RE we learnt about Saint Maximilian Kolbe and our topic was The Bible. We looked at the stories of Abraham, Moses and David. We also had our first class Mass and it was lovely to see so many family and friends of St Joseph's attend.


In literacy, our book study was The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We focused on descriptive writing and writing complex sentences. We also linked our writing with Black History Month and learnt about the remarkable Rosa Parks. We buddied up with Miss Hutchins class and created a fantastic college of Rosa Parks.


Our history focus was The Iron Age where we learnt about tribes and settlements, beliefs and at the end of the topic we visited our outdoor classroom and took part in an Archaeological dig.


In science our focus was 'Animals including humans'. We enjoyed learning about the skeletal system and how muscles work. Class 4 chose to investigate 'Does the length of the femur affect how far you jump?'



We had a fantastic first term and look forward to the next one!
