Knowsley CLCs are delivering a 6 week After School Club giving children the opportunity to get hands on with technology.
Please see the video below for a quick snapshot of the club:
Chinese lions and dragons visit St Joseph’s to bring the school the best of luck for the new Chinese New Year!
Congratulations and well done to our Year 4 children who took part in the gymnastics competition on Monday, we are KNOWSLEY CHAMPIONS!!! Out of a possible 12 medals to be won our team won 10 and a trophy!!!!
We’re very excited to be welcoming Craig McCann to the school. Craig was spotted by the British disabled Fencing Association in 2010, after being diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2004 leaving Craig permanently disabled. Craig has some great achievements including reaching the quarter finals at the 2012 Olympics in London. Craig also entered the disciplines of Paracycling and Paratriathlon at the Rio Paralympics in 2016. Craig McCann will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and will follow-up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life. Much of the money that is raised will be used to buy sports equipment for the school, while also supporting GB athletes.
During November, our Year 5 and 6 children performed Romeo and Juliet at the Knowsley Leisure and Culture page. Here is a copy of the appraisal of our performance.
This week the children in our school had the opportunity to watch a professional play based upon anti-bullying. The children really enjoyed watching the play and learning about the consequences of their actions.
A time capsule has been buried beside the front entrance to school containing examples of children’s work.
All pupils were asked to write about what they thought school would be like in 25 years time, in 2041.
They had some wonderful ideas which included robot teachers, computer tablets instead of pencils and books and Mr Newstead still here as head teacher!
One child even speculated that Ant and Dec would be hosting “I’m a Celebrity…” from Mars!
Everyone is welcome to visit school in 2041 to find out if any of these predictions have come true.
We will add more information shortly.
