St Oswald's Catholic Primary School: Our blogs

A great week, well done Year 6.

Home Practice


Please enjoy reading a good book for up to 30 minutes every evening.


When reading, if you come across any new words that you don’t understand, ask an adult or look them up in the dictionary.

Building up your vocabulary knowledge is really beneficial, so make a list of good words that you could use in your own writing.

The 1,000-year-old Boy : Welford, Ross: Books

We are still enjoying our novel The 1000 year old Boy by Ross Welford. 

We have written some great non-fiction, including an explanation of what climate change is and a persuasive piece encouraging people to act now to reverse the effects of climate change.

In PE, we practised for Sports Day, developed our tennis skills and played mini games.

In French, we created menus for the French cafe.

In Music, we are learning the songs for our Bugsy Malone production. You will find them in the documents at the bottom of the blog dated 24th May (paper copies were also given out this week). Please learn the words as soon as possible! 

Drama - We have spent more time rehearsing and singing the songs. Next week the acting will really begin!!

Forest School - another great session. One group built obstacle courses and demonstrated them to the rest of the class.

The other group, learnt how to use hammers safely. Their activity was to hammer nails into a piece of wood then wrap wool around them to make a piece of art. The children were very inventive and creative, well done Year 6.

We enjoyed a great session all about transition to High School.

We also had a visiting dance teacher who helped us to create and perform a dance for the upcoming Olympics.

  #30 Days Wild

As a school we are going to take part in a celebration of everything nature has to offer. This is an initiative set up by The Wildlife Trust. In June, we will be providing opportunities for all children to experience and learn about the wildlife on their doorstep, helping to nurture happier, healthier children, and create allies for our precious natural neighbours.
