An amazing finish for the St Joseph’s Ten Tors team who have arrived at Okehampton Camp at 9.22am yesterday morning. Well done Chloe, Arlen, Kellen, James, Pippi and Robin. We are very proud of you all! The team managed to reach their 8th check point on Saturday evening which meant they only had two tors to complete on Sunday.

More details to follow soon.

 

Year 1 Rainforest Animals

May 13th, 2019 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in News - (0 Comments)

n preparation for their trip to the Eden Project on Wednesday, the Year 1 children have been using the iPads to investigate and paint rainforest animals 🐘

On Friday 10th May we had a whole school assembly organised by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). There were some very willing helpers (Ruben and Jessica from year 1 were especially keen to get up in front of the school and help to ‘save’ some of the older children.) The children asked lots of very good questions and there was a display of exceptional sitting and listening from the youngest children in the school. We are now ready and prepared to visit the beach! Thank you to the RNLI lifeguards for coming to speak with us 🏖

At the end of last term in RS lessons, Year 7 students explored a number of themes from the Spirited Arts competition. These themes encourage students to reflect on the big questions they have about life.

A gallery featuring their hard work has been on display in the main foyer at school for everyone to enjoy.

Not only have the students worked hard and with great thought, they have demonstrated just how deeply they care about the world we belong to and the people we build our relationships with. Amazing work Year 7!

The top three St Joseph’s entries as judged by Mr Scott, Mr Matthews, Mr Duff, Miss Hemingway and Mrs Sweeney were China, Jem and Kelly. Congratulations to you all.

Launceston Castle Trip

April 30th, 2019 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Gallery | News - (0 Comments)

The Year 5 and Reception children had a lovely time at Launceston Castle last week. The Reception Children hunted for signs of spring and the Year 5 class explored the layout of the town using maps. The older children looked after the Reception Class beautifully as they climbed all the way to the top of the castle. What an idyllic way to spend an afternoon!
