The Great St Joseph's Bake Off

 We had lots of fun designing and making bread during our Design and Technology lessons. The children worked hard to create exciting and innovative designs. The judges were very impressed. Well done Year 3!

Class Assembly

 The children worked hard to perfect their assembly about the third Station of the Cross. They sang beautifully and used clear, loud voices when reading. Excellent acting too! 

Well done Year Three.

Spring One 2018


The children were given a challenge to make a tower using marshmallows and cocktail sticks. The tower needed to be at least 3cm tall and be able to hold a book for 10 seconds. 


The children found it quite tricky to begin with but they persevered and managed to create some successful towers. 


This was a great introduction to our new coding topic. The children will need to use their debugging skills to ensure the code is correct. 



Called to Change

The children have been learning about forgiveness and how God will forgive those who sin; He will always love them. We discuss three key parables relating to forgiveness:

Zacchaeus the tax collector  

The Lost Sheep  

The Prodigal Son 


The children worked as groups to recreate art work representing the Prodigal Son.
