Here is Demelza’s fantastic twig bridge. Did you do the challenge? Share your bridges with us!

Owing to the need for social distancing Covid 19 has brought, St Joseph’s school is now spread across Devon and Cornwall, from Dartmoor to Duloe, Looe to Liskeard and Bude to Bodmin. Pupils are working from home on lessons set by or teaching staff, and we are gearing up for online learning and all the possibilities this brings.

Parents are encouraged to contact teachers regularly throughout this time, and Mr Scott and the St Jo’s team will be in regular communication with parents and pupils throughout this time. We are maintaining our weekly newsletter, and encourage contributions from parents and pupils showing us what the children of St Jo’s are up to on a daily and weekly basis.

Please do contact with any general questions and queries, or if your question is about joining St Jo’s when things return to normal. Alternatively, Mr Scott can be contacted with an email to

We will return to teaching as normal as soon as we possibly can. We miss every child who should be coming to school each morning, and look forward to being together again soon.

In this difficult time do look after one another, listen to and act on the advice given and we will then all do our bit for the good of everyone – particularly the most vulnerable.

Reception and Year 1 had lots of fun during an Easter egg hunt this morning. The Reception Class then carried on down to the orchard to release our class tadpoles. We wanted the tadpoles to be safe while we are away (we also don’t want to get back to school to a classroom full of frogs!)

This term Year 4 pupils have been studying trains and yesterday completed their own (fully moving) motorised trains which they built themselves. Great work Year 4!
