Welcome to Year 6!
We are so excited for the coming year.
The staff in year 6 will be Mrs Baston, Mrs Russell, Mrs Weston and Mrs Devitt will be supporting groups in the mornings.
It will a time of preparation in many different ways.
We prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This is a very special time because we work together to gather a deeper understanding of our faith. It is the time in our lives when we stand up to say 'Yes' to God's invitation to love and serve him. We consider, discuss and find out what it really means to be a follower of Christ in our world today.
Throughout the year, we prepare for Secondary school. We know that we need to learn more about being independent and how to look after our world. To prepare for this we have lots of jobs and responsibilities around school and we know we have to set a good example to the younger pupils through our work and excellent behaviour.
Year 6 pupils have been raising money to purchase a CAFOD World Gift this Christmas. We asked our friends and family to sponsor us and then we walked laps of the playground.
Thank you to all those who have sponsored us, we can't wait to total our donations and see what we can buy.
Year 6 have been working to create presentations on J2e in their computing lessons. Please scan the QR codes to view our presentations.
Anti-Bullying Week is an annual UK event held in the third week in November which aims to raise awareness of bullying of children and young people, in schools and elsewhere.
Bullying is behaviour by an individual or group, repeated over time, that intentionally hurts another individual or group either physically or emotionally. Bullying can take many forms (for instance, cyber-bullying via text messages or the internet), and is often motivated by prejudice against particular groups, for example on grounds of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or because a child is adopted or has caring responsibilities. It might be motivated by actual differences between children, or perceived differences.
Bullying will not be tolerated here at St Brigid's; we are all buddies not bullies!
Year 6 visited Northfield Library to find out about the services the Library has to offer. We enjoyed listening to the librarians and looking at the books. We learnt about how we could sign up for a library card so we can visit in our time.
We have really enjoyed playing instruments in our music lessons.
We were so excited to meet our faith friends in Reception. We made a card for them to welcome them to the family of St Brigid's and to let our faith friends know that we will be praying for them and working with them this year.
On our first session, we shared books together and introduced ourselves.
We participated in a national initiative called 'Fill the skies with hope' day. We thought about how we feel about the government's plans to send refugees from Rwanda back to their country. We wrote messages to the government and our Prime Minister, Liz Truss, about our thoughts and feelings. We made paper planes on orange paper with our messages. We flew them in our school playground and around our school to 'fill the sky with hope.'
We have sent our photographs to our local MP for him to take with him to parliament
Today Sister Eleanor from CAFOD visited us to teach us about Catholic Social Teaching. We learnt about the main precepts which are:
To celebrate the feast of Our Lady's birthday, we made presents and wrote on them our gifts for Mary. We thought about what Our Lady would like us to do on her birthday. These included saying a prayer, reading a story about her from the Bible or taking inspiration from her example of faith. We visited the Lady Chapel in Church to lay our gifts before Mary's statue.
The children created a Kindness Advent Calendar to encourage them to be kind, considerate and give them ideas on how to bring joy into the classroom and their homes during the season of Advent.
Year 6 have been very busy making clay medallions and preparing blocks of wood in out D and T lessons.
Watch this space to see what our blocks of wood are used for!
Gino - 6AB won the 'Prayer For Climate Change' Competition.
What an amazing prayer!!
Year 6 are reading War Horse.
They looked at how a character was feeling and tried to empathise.
The characters in the hot seat responded to the questions in detail and in role. They showed a depth of understanding of the character they portrayed.
Year 6 teamed up with St Thomas Aquinas year 7 children to look at and explore the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
They worked brilliantly together.
Sunday 25th April was Vocations Sunday. We marked the occasion by dressing up as what we want to be when we are older as a way of thinking about what God is calling us to be.
On Wednesday 20th November, Deacon Paschal from Oscott College came to meet Year 3 and 6 and discuss his calling to the priesthood. We were fascinated by his story and enjoyed singing along to his guitar.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
