Maths Fun Day – Friday 20th May
The children all took part in the sponsored fun day today! Great fun and learning was had by all. The children were using mathematics to solve real life problems involved in making cake and the perfect fruit kebab. Every class used their puzzle box to explore their reasoning skills. Thanks to Mrs Bradshaw and the friends for organising this wonderful day.
Knowsley Safari Park visit
All of our children had the opportunity to experience a Safari Park session this week. The children thoroughly enjoyed the sessions, photos will be added to the screen in the foyer so you can see the fun had by all! Thanks must go to the Safari Park for delivering these sessions for free so that our children could experience this fabulous resource.
Royal National Lifeboat Institution
Today Nursery, Reception, Year 2 and Year 3 had a visit from Mel from the RNLI. The children learnt about the work of the RNLI and how important they are around our coastlines. In the Nursery, Mel told the children a story about a dog, Ben that was rescued by the RNLI.
With the older pupils he played a beach safety game. All pupils were shown exciting footage of the RNLI in action.
James Apter Friendship Fund
The caring community of St Joseph the Worker Catholic Primary School have given that little bit extra this Lent. After seeing a notice on the Knowsley Council website staff decided to ask for donations of eggs for the James Apter Friendship Fund. The response from the families and staff has been overwhelming. Kim & Philip Apter visited the school to collect the donations in person. Headteacher Jude Ryan shared why the charity meant so much to the school community “The James Apter Friendship Fund is all about brightening up a child’s day and when we heard about the Easter egg collection we wanted to be part of it”
The Easter eggs will be taken to the children on the Oncology and Respiratory units of Alder Hey’s Children’s Hospital. The vision of the trust is to bring a smile to every child’s face, just like James always had on his.
Year 2 Assembly
Our Year 2 treated us all to a wonderful Thanksgiving assembly yesterday, what superb actors, singers, readers and dancers we have in our school. They all performed with confidence and showed us how important it is to show respect and compassion to others in our community by saying thankyou.
THANKYOU Year 2, Mrs Reddin and Mrs Westwood for a lovely assembly!
The children and staff had an amazing experience at Manchester Arena on Wednesday. To be able to take part in and experience such a magnificent event is wonderful for all involved. Not only did they sing in the choir, they worked with a world class conductor, a classically trained soprano, a beatboxing group to name a few! Thanks must go to the staff who gave up their evening to make sure the children had such an opportunity.
World Book Day
It was wonderful to see all of the staff and pupils dressed up as book characters, thank you for the effort that you all put in to ensure the children looked fantastic.
This year, Knowsley School Meals Service donated prizes for the best costumes; it was extremely hard to choose. Well done to the following children who were chosen:
Early Years – Andrew as Willie Wonka
Key Stage 1 – Connie as Cruella DeVille
Key Stage 2 – Ellie as Miss Trunchbull
Fishy reward for Year 5
As a reward for their fantastic performance of Twelfth Night Year 5 pupils asked for a fish tank in their classroom. Miss Gosney collected the fish tank a couple of weeks ago and Mr Poole prepared the tank for the fish. A member of staff brought fish and plants to the school and explained to the children how to look after them. The school has made a donation to a charity of their choice.
