FHC Retreat Day!

Thursday, 12 May 2022

Year 3 had a lovely day today, with Dan Callow from One Life Music, on their First Holy Communion Retreat Day. The children spent the day praying, singing, preparing to receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion on Saturday and having lots of fun! It was lovely to be joined by so many parents and Father Louis for closing prayers too.

Welcome back to the B-Tales

Thursday, 24 March 2022

The children were so excited to welcome the B-Tales back to St Joseph’s! Everyone enjoyed their Thorn in the Crown Production. The children (and staff) laughed and cried as they travelled the journey to the cross with Jesus. A moving performance and one which the children will be remembering for a while yet!

Mrs Bansal talking to Year 6

On Tuesday 15th June Year 6 were visited by Mrs Bansal from Bishop Milner Catholic College.

Mrs Bansal came to talk to the children about moving to Bishop Milner in September and answer any questions and worries the children had.

Mrs Bansal also met with parents to answer their questions to help the move to Bishop Milner as smooth as possible.

Thank you to Mrs Bansal for taking the time to come to St Joseph’s!

EYFS Bus and Police Visit

Tuesday, 25 February 2020

Fun on the bus!

On Tuesday 25th February the children from Nursery and Reception had some very special visitors from National Express West Midlands and a local Police Officer who all brought a bus with them to school!

The children loved exploring the bus and talking about bus travel and they listened very carefully to the police officer who talked about how he keeps people safe on the bus too!

It was a lovely morning and all the children had a wonderful time!

B-Tales visit at the start of Anti-bullying Week

Monday, 11 November 2019

The B-Tales in action!

On Monday 11th November we were very lucky to be visited by the B-Tales who shared their play – Joe the Dreamer!

The play was based on the bible story of Joseph and his coat of many colours but with a modern twist which looked at jealousy, bullying and the effects this can have on people and the actions it leads them to take.

The children form Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 REALLY enjoyed the performance and asked the actors some very thoughtful questions at the end of the performance.

We really do love having the B-Tales in school and are already looking forward to their next visit in December!

Vocations Talk

Wednesday, 17 July 2019

Vocations talk in Year 5.

On Wednesday 17th July Years 5 and 6 were visited by Tharushi Jayakidy from St Mary’s College Oscott who is Vocation Promotion Outreach Fieldworker.

Tharushi spoke to the children about her own vocation and vocations in the church.

The children were very interested in the talk and grateful to Tharushi for taking the time to visit us!

B-Tales – What the Women Saw

Monday, 8 April 2019

The B-Tales in action!

On Monday 8th April we were once again treated to a wonderful performance from the B-Tales who performed their play What the Women Saw.

It was another excellent performance which all of the children and staff found utterly brilliant – a perfect mix of modern music alongside Jesus’ death and resurrection from the point of view of Mary (Jesus’ mother) and Mary Magdalene.

One Year 4 child commented, “I really enjoyed the play because the actors made all the events seem so real – as if they were really happening in front of me!”

We are very grateful to the B-Tales for making the journey to come to St Joseph’s and we look forward to welcoming them back again soon!
