Newsletter - 22 April 2016


We do hope you had a great Easter break and we are glad that you all arrived back safe and sound. We had a whole school Mass on the 15th April. Just a quick newsletter to keep you up to date with the latest news from St Joseph’s.

Rainbow Class Liturgy

          Thank you to Rainbow class for their Liturgy on Thursday morning. It was genuinely delightful and the singing was beautiful. We learnt about how Jesus left an important message for his disciples to follow him and also about new life and how plants grow. Thank you!


This time of year is when children in Year 1 do their phonics screening check and Year 2 and Year 6 do their SATS. You will be notified of the relevant details if your children are involved.  This year children in Year 2 and 6 are doing new types of tests.  We wish them all the luck in the world and our prayers are with them.

Art Gallery  

On Friday 20th May we are going to have a whole school art exhibition.  Our school hall will be converted into a gallery with a wonderful display of every child’s art work.  This work will be framed and just to give you prior warning it will be available for you to buy for £7.50 if you should wish to do so - although there is no obligation. We would like you to come along and view the exhibition and will be sending out more information about the timing of the day.
