The week ended on a high with a fun packed Sharing Assembly. There's been some wonderful work going on in all the classrooms and the children enjoyed seeing and listening to each presentation.
The assembly began with Year 3 giving directions in Welsh for a cyclist to navigate around a village and ended with Year 6 shopping, also in Welsh.
In between we were entertained by a lively Penguin, an eloquent Gruffalo and a dramatic presentation of a scene from Oliver Twist. We were also impressed by some superb art work and poetry about Bonfire Night.
These celebrations are always a highlight of the week and a chance to showcase the talents of our children.
On Saturday, there was a fantastic turn out of families at the annual Parish Christmas Fair. We are delighted that so many of our school community took the time to support the parish.
The PTA provided a number of stalls especially aimed at younger family members. This included, biscuit decoration, toy tombola, name the teddy and nail painting. Many thanks to all those parents who helped prepare and run these activities. Your work is much appreciated.
One of the highlights was the return of Father Christmas to St Joseph's Christmas Fairs. As you can see in the photos above, his grotto was a place of wonder and enchantment - if a little hot! Again, many thanks to those whose efforts brought smiles to the faces of young and old.
I believe the fair raised around £1200 which represents a significant increase on last year's total and is probably a result of the increased attendance of young families.
Together, we are growing in love.
Once again the children of St Joseph's have joined in the spirit of Children in Need. Many came as their Superhero/hero and some came dressed in red/yellow. Year 5 children ran a very successful cake and loom band stall and Year 6 had a draw a Pudsey competition. Many thanks to everyone for their contributions.
A group of children were given the opportunity to attend the Conwy Food Festival on Friday 24th October. They had a wonderful experience. They were given the chance to make Pumpkin Soup with herb scones.
Later in the morning,with the help of SNAG members of Emrys ap Iwan, they children were challenged to test their senses: taste, smell, touch, sound and sight.
To end the day, we visited a tent which was filled with foody delights, but unfortunately it was all made from papier mache! We did however write some fantastic poetry, using the "food" as inspiration. It was displayed for all the visitors to the Food Festival to see!
