Welcome to Class 12's website page!
Well done everyone! Your effort, concentration and determination to succeed during SATs week was commendable! We are very proud of you all.
Your final half term at St Joseph's promises to be a super fun-filled and exciting one- with of course our residential trip to Robinwood to look forward to! When we return we will be exploring the topic of 'Crime and Punishment' through the ages. We will be using all of our scientific skills too in a project to help the NHS- this should be really interesting!
Of course, we will also be preparing our leavers' assembly for your final farewell on the 20th July.
Lesson 1 of world faith week; we were challenged with lots of different artefacts and unusual objects- we had to use our investigative skills, study the objects and deduce which religion we would be studying, reasoning why we thought that.
We were super enquirers- we managed to figure out that we would be studying Islam!
At last- we got to dress up as our favourite book characters without the pesky snow getting in the way!
Well done Class 12- you all looked amazing today!
Congratulations to Natalie Killoran- who was our class winner- she dressed as Hagrid from Harry Potter.
Even the teachers got involved! Who can you spot?
A gifted mathematician, Ada Lovelace is considered to have written instructions for the first computer program in the mid-1800s.
The daughter of famed poet Lord Byron, Augusta Ada Byron, Countess of Lovelace—better known as "Ada Lovelace"—was born in London on December 10, 1815. Ada showed her gift for mathematics at an early age. She translated an article on an invention by Charles Babbage, and added her own comments. Because she introduced many computer concepts, Ada is considered the first computer programmer. Ada died on November 27, 1852.
We followed in Ada’s footsteps by programming, adding to the Minecraft game, creating our own circuit boards using conductivity paint.
We worked together as a year group and discussed what a 'smart' Year 6 pupil should be like here at St Joseph's.
We came up with lots of brilliant ideas. We have agreed that we are now mature enough to take on the extra responsibility and be good role models to others. Our gold ties will be a sign to everyone that St Joseph's Year 6's are the ones to watch! We will show everyone how to behave in and around school. We will be excellent learners and try our best in everything that we do!

We had a super scientific time at today's assembly! The visiting scientist amazed us with lots of experiments! She even held fire in her hand! The assembly definitely inspired us to become 'Mad Scientists!'
