Year 6 Open Evening
With just under 24 hours to go, we'd like to share the format of our virtual open evening with you, and hope that you'll join us on Tuesday at 6.00pm.
Year 6 to 7 Transition - English and Maths
Maximising each child’s educational journey and helping them prepare for secondary school is a part of our vision at St. Joseph’s Catholic College. We are committed to improving the transition experience of our students as they move from Year 6 into 7 and have developed an English and Maths scheme of work that students complete in term 6 of Year 6 and continue into their first term of Year 7. In English, they read an engaging spy fiction novel called ‘Stormbreaker’ by Anthony Horowitz and are introduced to some of the analytical approaches to English in Year 7. In Maths, the spy fiction theme continues in a code-breaking unit focused on the topic of Algebra. Our goal is to improve pupil outcomes of both numeracy and literacy alongside developing confidence in students in their transition from KS2 to KS3.
