Welcome to Class 13's web page!
Well done everyone on a fabulous half term! You have worked really hard, we are very proud.
We are about to embark upon your final half term at St Joseph's- it's going to be very busy!
We look forward to seeing you- ready for Robinwood and ready to start preparing for those goodbyes in July.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit from 'Tempus Fugit' today. He acted out for us, a Victorian mill owner, a school teacher and an entertainer. It really helped us to understand more about what it must have been like for Eliza (the main character from the book that we are reading) growing up and working during the reign of Queen Victoria.
To celebrate the end of Shakespeare week, we worked together with Classes 11 and 12. We taught each other about the play that we have studied this week. Class 11 taught us all about The Tempest, Class 12; Hamlet and we shared with them, the plot and characters of the Scottish play- Macbeth.
What a great week!
A big thank you to everyone who dropped in yesterday to share a book- it was really lovely to see you all!
Here we are trying out our baking skills! We have been making (and eating) 'Maids of Honour' tarts. These are a traditional English tart, made of puff pastry filled with almond-flavoured curd cheese and are said to date from the time of King Henry VIII. They were delicious!
The inflatable Manchester museum! Today, we were visited by a 'pop-up' museum. We were taught all about Ancient Egypt and were lucky enough to handle some actual artefacts. It was amazing!
WOW! What an explosive and vibrant start to Black History Week! The Zulu dancers taught us all about their language, clothing and culture! It was amazing!
Today, our new Year 6s received their very special gold ties. Don't they look smart? We look forward to celebrating all of the wonderful things that they achieve this year.
Being in Year 6 means being the best example that we can be to everyone who is younger than us in school. We discussed what a 'smart Year 6 pupil' should look like and how they should behave. We have set high expectations for ourselves and are determined to make everyone proud. The Year 6 Charter is a list of the expectations that we have set for ourselves- written by us and signed to say that we promise to fulfil them.
