St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, learn and live in Christ!

Hello Parents, Carers and Children! We are at the start of the last half term of the school year. It has been a very challenging time for us all lately and I know I do not need to tell you how myself and the staff long for the day we can all be together and school life returns to normal. I am hopeful that we may begin to start re-opening for groups of children in the coming weeks and will keep you updated as soon as we know anything. Remember to just do what you can when you can. You are doing a brilliant job! As always you can email your child's teacher or myself with any concerns you have. We want to do all we can to support you. We are here for you. The message from the Government is still to keep social distancing measures in place, regular hand washing and vigilance. Stay safe and stay strong! Mrs Hodges

2020 Time Capsule

This as a very unusual time for us and I am sure that in the future people will be learning about the year 2020 when schools shut and people had to stay at home. Nothing like this has ever happened before and so it will become an important part of History.  Over the next few weeks make a time capsule and include information to put inside it, that tells others from the future what it is like at this present time. Add photos, written information, newspaper clippings, drawings, etc... and then send me a photo of you with it before you bury it in your garden or hide it in your attic for someone in the future to find! Below is a printable resource which you could complete for your time capsule.

We know you love the author David Walliams. He is posting a free audio story each day. Go to the link: https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/
