Dear Pupils, Parents, Staff, and Governors,
As you know, this week has been very busy here at St. Joseph’s in part because of the Y6 and Y2 SATs. Year 6 worked really hard and completed their SATs exams remaining calm, collected and engaged throughout. I am excited about getting the results and seeing how well they have done. Our year 2 children have also been busy completing their compulsory testing and again, the children excelled themselves. I am extremely proud of all of the children and I would like to thank parents and staff for all of your dedicated support and encouragement during these busy weeks.
Of course, the children have also been busy enjoying Science Week and I cannot wait for them to share their experiences with me either in their display work or in their books.
Next week, Y5 will be setting off on their school journey to Sayers Croft where they will enjoy a range of activities including pond-dipping, building shelters, sharing each other’s company and spotting rabbits and bluebells in the Surrey countryside.
Our sporting initiatives also continue next week with two days of Cricket at The Hub, Regents Park for 10 pupils from Y5 and Y6 (Y5/6 girls on Tuesday and Y6 boys on Wednesday). I am sure they will be excellent sports ambassadors for the school.
On Thursday 23rd May, in accordance with the fulfilment of our civic responsibilities, the Sharp Suite will be made available for the European Elections. Y6 will therefore make use of the Y5 classrooms given that the latter will be enjoying their rural excursion.
May God bless you and keep you and your family safe.
Dr Ninette Fernandes-Viana
