Meet the Eco Garden Club. Planning and organising projects. Teams wanting to make a difference. Some seeds were planted and what a difference a week makes.
Thank you to all of the parents and grandparents who have volunteered to help out in the garden. I will be in touch very soon. There is still the opportunity to volunteer, just return the letter, send in a note or email the school office with your contact details.
Due to the snow from storm Doris and to in order to ensure safe dismissal there will be no Eco Garden Club tonight.
We will resume next week as planned.
Next week there will be pancakes for all pupils on Tuesday afternoon and we thank the staff in the kitchen for providing them for us.
On Ash Wednesday the menu will be altered to provide meals with no meat. On the Red tray there will be Macaroni and on the Blue tray it will be Pizza. The Green tray will have a range of sandwiches without meat in the filling. On Thursday the Red tray will have Roast Beef and the Blue tray Kilted Sausages.
The campers had a great time in Barcaple and were a credit to their families and the school. They tried all of the activities and pushed themselves to try difficult challenges. The pupils fed back that they would recommend the camp to next year’s pupils. They will be making a powerpoint of photos with comments and we will post it on the blog when it is complete.

This week in maths I have been learning about different types of charts. I think I could learn a bit more about them though. I learned about pie charts and graphs and how to solve problems to do with graphs.
This week in literacy we were looking at autobiography and biography texts. We looked at parts of Roald Dahl’s life story from his autobiography ‘Boy’ . To finish the topic off we wrote our very own autobiography about our experiences at the St. Joseph’s Christmas show this year called Cinderella, Rockerfella.
Another thing that we did this week was performed our Christmas show Cinderella, Rockerfella. It was a huge success and all the rehearsals paid off. I was part of the talent act and I played violin.
It has been a great week!
We are enjoying practising for our panto. We know you will all be completely blown away with the standard of acting, singing and dancing. We are a very talented school.
