Year 4 have just returned, muddy, but very excited from their visit to Butser Farm.

We had a great time building fences, smoothing chalk, spinning wool and even digging for bones!!

Last week's news

What a busy week we had

Cross Country at St. Joseph's was a very muddy affair but we saw great perseverance and spirit from our runners.  Particular congratulations to Jayden who came second.  Well done to our Year 4s who competed with those older than them and really held their own!!

Year 3 visit to Guildford on Friday was a real success - we look forward to hearing from the children about this!

Watt's Gallery - a great visit during which we learnt about the artist and his influences during Victorian Times.

Congratulations to last week's Stars!

Well done to our well deserved Stars of the Week!

Carnival Time!

Year 5 have been transported to Brazil and have had a fun packed day learning and experiencing all things 'Rio'.

The costumes are fantastic and ensured the day was even more exciting!  Thank you for all the time and effort parents put into these outfits!

Fabulous Fireworks!

What an amazing event last night!

Incredible display, great food, wonderful company and of course the BBC!!

Thank you so much to everyone who came to support the school, we really appreciate your contributions and these benefit the children incredibly.

A huge thank you to Mrs Millard who masterminded the whole event and organised it so efficiently - we really support her time and efforts.  Also thank you to the FAB team and staff who helped out - we couldn't do it without you.

Museum visit

The Year 6s have returned exhausted but buzzing from their visit to the Imperial War Museum.

The teachers were keen to pass on that the behaviour of our pupils was so good and they treated the museum with the respect it deserves.  We look forward to hearing more about it after half term.

Consultation Evenings

Looking forward to meeting with you all over the next two evenings.  The children are very keen to show off their work!

Lunch Club visit

We have just returned from the Lunch Club at the Methodist Church where some of our Year 6s presented the ladies and gentlemen with a box of Harvest goodies!

They were so excited to meet our children and were delighted with the offerings.  We were there chatting for ages and finding out all about their lives.  One gentleman had witnessed the first brick being laid for Guildford Cathedral, another was a Normandy Veteran and another lady was a wren who worked at Bletchley Park.  The eldest recipients were both 100!

Happy Harvest

What a wonderful celebration we had this morning. Thank you to each and every one of the children for their participation.  We had singing, dancing, recorders players (Beethoven!) and great acting.  Most importantly it was a time to reflect on those less fortunate than ourselves.  Thank you for your generosity with the donations, they will be much appreciated.

A particular vote of thanks to Revd. Jacqueline for her wonderful input.

A huge thank you to all the staff for the time and effort they put into ensuring such a fantastic festival.

Thank you also to the FAB ladies for serving teas and coffees.
