Our outdoor area was transformed on Tuesday morning with a beautiful covering of snow. An exciting play time consisted of pattern making, bird tracking, snowballing over the fences and snowman building.
On Tuesday 6th February the whole school celebrated Safer Internet Day. Each class took part in activities to make them aware of the dangers of going on line. Safety messages were explored with the most important being to ask an adult before going on the internet . Parent were also reminded that Mobile phones must not be used on the school premises including the playground.
We haven't received any results yet from today's year 3/4 gymnastic competition, but as a teacher who has been coaching the gymnastics teams at St Joseph's school for 9 years I could not feel prouder. The children have improved week on week from the beginning of term and this afternoon every child performed brilliantly, really pushing themselves to be the best that they could be. Their behaviour throughout was outstanding and they were wonderful ambassadors for the school. In addition, it was lovely to see the spectator's area almost filled with St Joseph's family members. Jane Johnson, the School Games Partnership Manager praised the children for their skills and their behaviour and said she was amazed that a small school was able to enter 2 fantastic teams.
A huge well done to everyone!
