St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Thame

Inspired to be our best.....


Year 6 have been enjoying honing their netball skills this half term.

Year 6's new topic is based on the text 'Journey to Jo'burg', and so the children are creating artwork based on the continent of Africa. They have drawn a map of Africa which includes all of the 54 countries and designed their artwork to include animals native to the different regions of Africa or the flags of the different countries.


This week Year 6 have been working on perfecting their long multiplication skills. They have supported each other by becoming 'Multiplication Masters' where they have explained long multiplication methods and reasoning to other children. 

Year 6 have been busy being creative. We wrote poetry entitled Day Walker and enjoyed creating a water colour background on which to present our work.

 We finished a week of working on our descriptive writing skills by drawing inspiration from a photograph of a mysterious scene and using a five sense to 'show not tell' the picture in our writing.

Year 6 used chalk pens to work on place value up to 1 million... they drew on desks, boards and walls!
