Hitachi Rail Project

Today 4 Junior School pupils have ventured to London to participate in the finals of the Hitachi Rail Project. This is an engineering programme that supports practical STEM learning in schools. Children throughout the Junior School have had the opportunity to take part in STEM clubs this year and create their rail vehicles. The Key Stage 1 Science club also got involved creating some fantastic trains.
 
The children have been working hard on their trains during after-school and lunchtime clubs and today their are showcasing their finished rail vehicles in front of the Hitachi Rail engineer judges.
 
Good luck to Phoebe, Beth, Erin and Sophie!
 
Thank you to Mr Renfree and Mrs Skerry for supporting the children and making the journey with them today.

On Friday 24th May, 26 pupils from Year 3 – 10 may have been nervous about sitting the prestigious Trinity Speech and Drama exams, although given the accomplished performances they put on they were all very much in control. The pupils had been rehearsing extremely hard over the weeks leading up to their exam under the expert eye of drama teacher Mrs Lucy Gordon-Clarke. This hard work and attention to detail certainly paid off, as the quality of their performances was excellent and really impressed the external examiner from the Board. Many congratulations go to the pupils who took part, all of whom achieved either a merit or a distinction. Well done to you all!
Year 3 -Rhys
Year 4 -Coco, Tilly, Harry, Reuben and Cecily
Year 5 -Eve, Erin, Poppy, Kobe and Millie
Year 6 -Oscar, Lowen, Erin, Max, Freya, Grace, Mae, Sophie and Hollie
Year 7 – China, Georgie, Jem, Kelly and Rosy

Our youngest members of the school community have been enjoying their recent transition sessions to prepare them for their move up to Year 1 and Year 2 in September. Last week they enjoyed spending time in the garden, playing games with Mrs Kemp and Mrs Bentley.

Moorland Hall Adventure

June 26th, 2019 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Gallery | News - (0 Comments)

Year 3 and 4 had a fabulous time on their school residential at Moorland Hall in May. A yomp up Gibbet Hill to play games could have been ruined by the massive downpours but the St Joseph’s children are a hardy lot and the saying ‘ There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing’ certainly applied. They were all wearing their outdoor school clothes so stayed dry and warm. The rest of the residential’s weather was more clement allowing the children to swim in the outdoor pool, do the leap of faith, make dens, stack crates and learn fire lighting techniques. We all had a wonderful time – thank you Moorland Hall.
