Throughout this half term, we have been learning all about ancient Greece. We have learned all about Greek myths and legends, who the gods were and about the culture of ancient Greece. As part of this topic, we decided to use our design and technology week to recreate some typical Greek food. Below are some pictures of the children in year 4 creating a meze. The meze included Greek salad, tzatziki, chicken kebabs and olives.
For our class assembly, we looked at the three most important gifts that we have been given by God- love, friendship and joy. Jesus set an example for us to follow in the way he acted with everybody he met. In our assembly we acted out the story of Jesus and the leper. We talked about how God gave us his only son to show us how much he loved us and the fact that this enables us to love all of the people in our lives.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
Due to the amazing gift God gave us and the sacrifice he made, we are able to live our life full of joy, safe in the knowledge that God is by our side.
As part of our linking project with St Peter's C of E Primary school, we spent the day at M6 Theatre where we met our link class 4J.
The children had a fantastic day which included a performance of 'A Little Gift', various ice breaker games and a theatre workshop where they had to create freeze frames related to the performance they had watched earlier in the day.
We are due to continue with our linking work alongside class 4J in the new year.
Please see below some pictures of the children at M6 Theatre
Welcome to a brand new year in St Joseph's. We are looking forward to another enjoyable year as the children continue their KS2 journey and we have been spending the first few weeks getting to know some routines and expectations.
We have been settling into our new class very well, meeting our new class mates, as well as staff.
Throughout the year this page will be updated as often as possible to keep our parents up to date with all the fantastic things that are happening in Class 9!
I hope you are all as excited about the new school year as we are at St Joseph's.
