Topic Map and Import Dates

Each class at St. Patrick’s has a class saint that we learn about throughout the year. We talk about our Saint regularly and encourage the children to learn, talk and ask questions about their Saint. Each Saint has a Feast Day, where we celebrate their lives and what they did in order to become a Saint.

In Badgers, our class saint is Saint Columba. St. Columba was an Irish missionary who is credited with spreading Christianity in Scotland and the building of churches and abbey's. St. Columba's feast day is the 9th of June.

As a faith school, RE as at the forefront of everything we do. We celebrate RE in many different ways across the school day and had a very special Advent.

To start off our topic we had a visit from Partake. We learnt all about medieval games and knights. We even made medieval medicine and wrote with quills.

During our topic we have made shields, swords, arrows, helmets and worn them to perform our very own castle based poem to our adults.

To finish our topic we invited all of our adults in to treat them to a medieval showcase of all our work.

We brought our learning to life during our amazing trip to Conisbrough Castle

We have done lots of reading for pleasure with our awesome castle books. We even had a castle day in school were we did some jousting, archery, made catapults and castles.

For our hard work with our topic work, we had a Christmas treat at Ice Sheffield. We went to watch Let It Go. We also did lots of fun Christmas crafts.
