New books donated by the Friends of St Joseph’s
The Friends of St Joseph’s have purchased books for all classes in the school. The Friends work extremely hard fundraising to provide extra resources for your children. We also appreciate our parents and families support for the events and fundraising activities that take place. Pictured are children with our new books.
We are all very proud of the magnificent performances of ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ over the past fortnight by some of our Year 5 and Year 6 children. We are extremely proud of their acting and overwhelmed by their ability to learn and recite those difficult words with such skill and expression. Thank you to all the parents and family members who supported their children in learning the lines, it is such a rich, powerful experience for everyone involved – something to always remember. We have had wonderful comments from many people which makes me so very proud! At the heart of the performance is Miss Gosney who never ceases to amaze us with her ability to produce such spectacular productions!
Children in Need
Thank you for supporting Children In Need. Nursery and Reception children have had a pyjama party with gingerbread biscuits and hot chocolate. The parent and toddler group joined the fun with the children colouring in lovely Pudsy pictures.
Thank you to Mrs O’Brien for donating cakes to sell at the Year 3 Assembly for Children in Need.
Macmillan Coffee morning
Many thanks to everyone who supported our Macmillan coffee morning either by joining us for coffee and cake, or by donating cakes or money to this worthwhile cause. Thank you also to Co-operative Funeralcare who donated the coffee, tea, sugar and milk for the coffee morning. Up to now we have raised nearly £200.
Year 6 have been learning how to be entrepreneurs. They were given a lump sum from the Friends of St Josephs to create ways of making money. The class was divided into groups and the group that made the most money kept their earnings. The pupils had a fantastic day which has helped develop team building and organisational skills
