Whole Class Reading

Blurb: The story of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is very difficult to describe. Usually we give some clues about the book in this description, but in this case we think that would spoil the reading of the book. We think it is important that you start to read without knowing what it is about.

If you do start to read this book, you will go on a journey with a nine-year-old boy called Bruno. And sooner or later you will arrive with Bruno at a fence.

We hope you never have to cross such a fence.

Geography: Local Area

RE Topic: Hinduism, Judaism and Expectations

Year 6 Topic 3 Advent Christmas 2019


The EXTRA-ORDO-NARY calendar is the liturgical calendar we use as a school. Each week has an accompanying word and theme for our collective worship. We display the calendar and the accompanying word of the week in the classroom and discuss them each week.

For further information on this great resource and many other equally great resources please visit the Nottingham Diocese Catholic Youth Service website.
