Many classes are taking part in the 2014 Micro Tyco challenge.
The children are very keen to get their entrepreneurial hats on and take up the £1 challenge again.
As you can see from the video above, St Joseph’s ROCK!


From Midnight on 1st November, our teams have exactly one month to make their £1 grow as much as possible.
They have been busy planning their 4 week strategy and are ready to go!

It is an amazing chance for all pupils involved to experience the spirit of enterprise.
Come back regularly to see what innovative ideas the children have come up with this year!

Cold weather clothing








Please ensure your child has suitable clothing for the approaching cold weather. A waterproof jacket, hat and gloves, as well as sensible footwear will ensure they are comfortable out in the playground at break and lunchtime.

“There is no thing as unsuitable weather, just unsuitable clothing!”

As always, clearly mark each item with your child’s name and class. Un-named items are extremely difficult to return to the correct owners.

Thank you.
