B-Tales back at St Joseph’s!

The B-Tales during their performance!

On Monday 17th December we were treated to a special performance by the B-Tales!

The B-Tales helped us all to get into the Christmas Spirit with their lovely play which was set the night before Christmas and was all about how a mean and unkind man, called Dr Freeze, was changed by the kindness of his enemy.

The story, based on the Good Samaritan, reminded us that we can do the ‘unexpected’ over Christmas and help people who are in need and spread a little bit more of Jesus’ love.

Thank you B-Tales for sharing another fantastic play with us!

White Watch talking to Year 4!

On Monday 12th November SPARKS (the Firefighters from White Watch) came into school to talk to the children in Year 4 about being safe at home.

White Watch explained some of the skills they need to do their job and then talked to the children about what they can do to stay safe in their home and what they should do if a fire was ever to break out.

The children found the talk very interesting, one child commented, “I know how I would safely get out of my house if there was a fire upstairs.”

Thank you  White Watch!

The B-Tales in action!

On Tuesday 13th November we were so excited to welcome the B-Tales back into school to perform their paly all connected to Anti-bullying Week.

The play was based on the story of Daniel in the Lion’s Den and showed us how a boy called Daniel had been bullying by children when he started a new school in Mr Lyons’ class.

The play reminded us of how important it is to tell an adult if others are hurting or upsetting you and how we can all look after each other to make sure we stay safe and happy.

One child comments, “I felt sad when Daniel was being bullied, I wouldn’t want anyone to feel as lonely as he did.”
