Year 6

Year 6 is a very special year for children at St. Joseph's. We are the oldest children in the school and so have the responsibility of setting a good example to all of the other children. Our teachers have very high expectations of us. We get lots of extra jobs around school, such as being lunchtime monitors and liturgy leaders.

Year 6 is our final year in Primary school, and everything that we have learned over the last six years is brought together. We work very hard during this year to get ready for our SATs, which take place in the Summer time. We get lots of extra homework, including practice SATs papers.

Year 5 and 6 are very special years for us at St. Joseph's, as they are what we call 'Sacramental Years'. This means that we are getting ready to receive a very special sacrament, which is a gift from God. Every second year, Years 5 and 6 work together to prepare to make their Confirmation. Confirmation is a very special Sacrament, as we renew the promises that were made on our behalf at Baptism, this time making them for ourselves. It allows us to be full members of the Church.

Our Catholic faith is at the centre of all we do, and we start and end each day with prayers. In the morning we share assemblies and collective worship or Mass with other classes.

Our time at St Joseph's Catholic Primary School is celebrated at the end of the year with a Leavers' Assembly, a Leavers' Mass and a party. These provide us with fond memories which we take with us to our new school. We also have a special end of year trip.
