The whole of St. Joseph's participated in an Intra School competition on Thursday 30th March. We took part in a pentathlon in the hall and worked in our house teams to earn points. The scores will be published on Monday after the winning house is announced after Collective Worship.  The Y5 Sports Leaders also chose 6 children from every class who displayed the School Games Values: Passion, Teamwork, Determination, Respect, Honesty and Self-Belief. Those children will be notified on Monday in the assembly and they will receive individual stickers and a certificate. It was a brilliant day where the children challenged themselves and had great fun. Well done, St. Joseph's!

9th February. Today the children focused on jumping: the leaders drew around a few of their bodies and they jumped as far over the body as possible. Later, they practised their javelin throwing skills, scoring points in a mini competition. Following this the leaders led them in a game of Sharks which was a personal and social challenge with the aim of being honest and fair. Finally they practised floor movements and balance with a quoit relay. The leaders did a fab job leading the session and they chose Niall for the Respect award, Piper for the Teamwork award and Angelo for Honesty award.

Sports Ambassadors' Report by Orlaith and Louis

On Thursday 2nd February, four children from Year 6 helped with leading the Change4Life After School Club.  We helped them with archery and throwing and catching. The Year 6 children have had earlier experience with the sports.  Archery was tricky but everyone learned how to do it by the end of the session. It was great fun for all and the Year 6s enjoyed helping our younger children.
