Early Years Summer Fete

On Friday, 16th July the children in Nursery and Reception enjoyed their Summer Fete. They were able to enjoy face painting, snacks, cake decorating and played games such as Splat The Rat, Pin The Face, Lucky Dip. Everyone had a fantastic day! 

Walk to school week 14th - 18th of June and Clean Air Day

Walk to school(2)

Next week is Walk to School Week. This year it coincides with Clean Air Day which is on the 17th of June. Our aim is to raise the childrens’ awareness of the importance of clean air and the impact of car use on air pollution and the wider environment.

By walking, the children will become more aware of their local area. It is also a chance for you to teach them to become more aware of road traffic and safety conscious when crossing roads.

During the week, children will have the opportunity to participate in a number of activities to develop their understanding of the importance of our environment and the impact which we have upon it.

We also aim to teach the children that walking is fun, improves physical and mental fitness and is environmentally friendly.

St Joseph's Day - 19 March 2021

Prayer of St Joseph

St. Joseph,
Foster father and guardian of Jesus,
Husband of Mary and patron of our school,
We call upon you to be our guide and protector.
As we follow your example,
Let us be caring, helpful and always prepared to do our best.
We pray for all who help us grow into the person God wants us to be.
We make our prayer through Christ Our Lord.

Amen

A visit from Falconry UK

We had a visit from Faconry UK as part of Science Week. We met Bailey - the White Faced Scops Owl, Blu - the Blue Winged Kookaburra, Pickle - the Tropical Screech Owl, Rocco - the Pygmy Falcon and Brooklyn - the Verreaux Milky Eagle Owl. 

This is what our children said:
'The owl is very big and heavy' 
'It was so exciting to see the birds and learn about them' 
'I was a little bit scared but then I loved it'

The gallery below shows what St Joseph's have been up to when Falconry UK visited:

Jermaine Jenas came to visit St Joseph's

It was fantastic to host Jermaine Jenas at St Joseph's. He spoke to our children about striving for success by listening, learning and working hard at school. Brilliant role model for our young people.
