Hi Y6.

This is your last week of home learning!

Celebrations – For All Children

As this is the final week, we would like you to think back on your time at St Wilfrid’s. Please can you produce a mind map of your memories of special times you have had here and how they made you feel. After this, please write an acrostic poem using ‘St Wilfrid’s’ as the word down the left hand side to share these memories with us. You can post these in the stream so that you can share them with your friends.

e.g.

Sharing a dorm with my friends at the Oakes

Taking communion for the first time during a school mass.

Walking to school on my own.
