We were incredibly lucky to be able to take TWO boys teams to the Adam Heslop cup this year! Both of our teams did amazingly, representing St. Joseph's in the way that I knew they would. I am so proud of each and every single one of them! One of our teams came top of the league, unbeaten in every match! We will be attending the Halifax Finals in the coming weeks - hoping to make it to the regional finals! 

Our girls team rocking it at North Bridge for the Adam Heslop cup! They did so well as it was their first time playing together as a team. They had a fab day and did St. Joseph's proud! Go Girls! :)

We had the chance to take a y5/6 football team to play at The Shay Stadium during half time of an FC Halifax game which was incredibly exciting! We did the guard of honour as the players came out and played again Siddal  Primary School. We won our match so we have been invited back for the semi-finals against Parkinson Lane!

We have been very lucky to set up partnerships with Sacred Heart Primary School in Sowerby Bridge this year to play matches in both netball and football - hosted by ourselves and them. It has been a lot of fun and we are looking forward to continuing over the next term!

Year 3 and 4 have now also had the opportunity to take part in the friendly football matches against Sacred Heart this half term. They had their first match this week - our year 3's won 3-2 and our year 4's did very well to be winning 2-0 at half time for the score to finish 3-5 to SH. Well done boys and girls!

Two of our KS2 pupils have shown great leadership and intuition and decided that- after taking part in Miss Hall's gymnastic club - that they would like to put on a gymnastics OOSH club for KS1 children on a Wednesday lunch time. To do this, they asked for 50p per week from the pupils the raise money for CAFOD. It has been a wonderful opportunity for our pupils to lead learning under supervision and for our younger pupils to develop their gym skills. The KS1 pupils have thoroughly enjoyed the various activities and Miss Hall has been able to watch both the two KS2 pupils grow in confidence and strength as they led the group themselves - one very proud PE Leader!!

The Super Six! These children all got through to the Calderdale finals in Cross Country this year. We had a fab afternoon running in the slushy mud after lots of snow! They all did incredibly well and I am very proud of them! :)


Our Year 5 and 6 boys took part in the Adam Heslop cup at North Bridge and did absolutely fantastically! We were so close to the finals - we had the same points as Carr Green but they went through on goals difference. Well done, boys!

We held a 'DRESS UP AND DANCE' day in school to raise money for Macmillan! Children were invited to come to school in dance wear, every class created a dance to a different genre which was then turned into a dance competition with the winning class earning themselves a pedometer each! :) We also had a 'guess the song competition'. We had SO much fun -everyone wanted to do it all over again! Here are the genres of dance that we did:

Reception - Ribbon dancing

Year 1 - African dancing

Year 2 - Line dancing

Year 3 - Rock n Roll!

Year 4 - Disco

Year 5 - Bollywood

Year 6 - Street dance
