The children in Nursery have been working really hard this week writing letters, practising letter sounds and attempting to write simple words.

This week in Reception we have been writing a new ending to ‘The Gingerbread Man’ using story maps as we were very sad that he got eaten by the fox! Our new and happy endings included the Gingerbread Man escaping in a boat and an aeroplane, crossing a bridge before chopping it down and floating away on a balloon! The children have worked hard in the outdoor area creating and testing their own bridges and boats. At the end of the week we made our own gingerbread men and to our surprise…one escaped!!! He ended up in Mrs Lloyd’s office having jumped out of the oven! How cheeky!
Last week in Reception, as a link to our Literacy topic on Traditional Tales, we have been investigating what would happen if we put a gingerbread man in water. The children used great vocabulary in their predictions and then watched as the ‘solid’ gingerbread man changed into a soggy mess and then broke up into tiny pieces! Jude said “I thought it had changed to a liquid, but it’s a solid as I can still pick it up, it’s just in tiny pieces.”

Year Four Cluster Mass- Friday 11 January
Please note venue for Mass has been changed to St Bede’s, Jarrow.
Please pass this message on to anyone who has plans to attend the Mass.
Everyone returned to school on Monday fit and well, apart from our head teacher. Mr Craig damaged his knee over the holidays and he returned to school on crutches. It’s ironic that the last thing he said to the children, at the end of last term, was that he didn’t want to see anyone returning to school on crutches!
We are delighted to welcome Mrs Dunn, our new deputy head teacher, to St Joseph’s. We are sure she will be happy here.
This Year our wonderful KS1 children performed our Christmas play, It’s a Party. They hosted four performances and each one was excellent. Well done to everyone involved.
A huge thank you goes out to The Friends of St. Joseph’s, for helping with teas and coffees and to Mrs Arthur for creating super baskets of treats for prizes!
