Tuesday 1st of December
As part of our Advent preparations, and to keep the true meaning of Christmas alive in our hearts and minds, Class 8 would like to raise some money for a local homeless charity during this half term. After discussions with the children, we have decided to arrange a ‘North Pole / Christmas’ themed fancy dress day.
The fancy dress day will take place on the last day of this half term - Friday 18th of December. All of the money raised will then be donated.
On this day, can you please send your child into school dressed in their fancy dress outfit. This can range from an elf to Father Christmas (or anything else you can think of) or you can make it as simple as just having one item of clothing that resembles Christmas. Can you please also send in £1 on this day for the charitable donation.
Mrs Jackson, all of Class 8 and I really appreciate your support and thank you in advance.
Class 8 Assembly
Today, Friday 13th of November, was our first class assembly as Year 3s. It was different to what we have been used to but we enjoyed preparing it and the other classes enjoyed listening to it. We narrated our assembly, teaching everyone about the importance of Remembrance Day and why we use poppies as a reminder of those people who have died for us. Everyone in school stayed in their own 'bubble' to listen to us and join in with our reflection-Separated but together in prayer.
Thursday 15th October
Today, we had the Hobgoblin Theatre Company in school. They put on a show all about the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. The children really enjoyed the show and learned lots of new things about their topic from this half term.
Welcome to a brand new year in St Joseph's. We are looking forward to another enjoyable year as the children start their KS2 journey and we will be spending the first few weeks getting to know some routines and expectations.
It has been great to finally have the children back in class.
Throughout the year this page will be updated as often as possible to keep our parents up to date with all the fantastic things that are happening in Class 8!
I hope you are all as excited about the new school year as we are at St Joseph's.
Reminder, that children will need to attend school on a Wednesday and Friday dressed in their PE kits.
Mr Callaghan (Class Teacher) and Mrs Jackson (Teaching Assistant)
