Science week home learning activity
To tie in with our wonderful Science week and our upcoming Sports day I have added an extra special home learning task for you to do if you wish. Please email the office any wonderful learning so that it can be added on to our School website. The activity sheet can be located below.
Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising free donations for St Joseph's Catholic Primary School - Aylesham with easyfundraising?
There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.

The final term! I wonder what term 6 is going to offer us, after such a crazy year!!!
It is our final term for our year 6 leavers and we are going to miss them very much once they have gone.
We are also going to be preparing for our RSC filming and our End of Year Production, 'Wow, What a Year!'
Look out for those catchy tunes and choregraphed moves!!

P.S. Remember to wear your sun cream!
Holy Spirit of peace, joy and love, give us your power to stay in God’s grace; help us see God in everyone’s face.
Fill our hearts with your strength and your might to live as God’s special children of light.
Come and bless every day of the week, and make us holy, humble, and meek.
Thank you for the gift of this new day and for the blessings you send my way.
Crimson, scarlet, burgundy, cherry. Blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let’s explore our circulation system. Now, surgeons, don’t be squeamish as we dissect an animal heart and examine the veins, arteries and chambers up close. They all work hard to move blood around our bodies. William Harvey was fascinated with anatomy, and made ground breaking discoveries about valves. I wonder what we might uncover? Why do people give blood? Find out how to keep your heart happy with cardiovascular exercise and healthy food. Kickstart a campaign to spread the word about the damage caused to the lungs and heart by smoking. Hearts pound, flutter and maybe skip a beat. What makes your heart race? Is it a secret? Cross my heart, I won’t tell.
Earth Class Christingle assembly
Each of the 4 Houses created their own Christingle candle!
Our first two weeks!
Here we are!
During the first full two weeks we have been studying a book called Here we are by Oliver Jeffers. The children have had the opportunity to explore what has happened during our lock down time, how they felt and what were the highs and lows for them. We have taken our time in Earth class to think about how with need to learn to socialise with each other and made our class promises. The children have also thought about what they would like our world to be like in the future and how they can personally make a difference. The children have thought deeply about their own personal emotions upon returning to school. Even though we have not been able to sing we have enjoyed joining in with many actions of our favourite school songs. We have been very impressed with how all the children have returned back to school life and see each of their individual spirits sparkle!
