This week’s theme is Helping Others and Kindness. It is always pleasing when children show our school values – respect, friendship, excellence and care but this week Joseph has really gone the extra mile. He decided to plate up some left over dinner for an elderly neighbour and he delivered it. Then he found out that a neighbour’s dog has recently died and Joseph decided to make them a card and also give them some of his treats. He sneaked up to their house to knock on the door and made sure they picked them up. What thoughtful acts of kindness. You are a credit to Class 2 and St Joseph’s!

Joseph has also been enjoying Adam Bushnell’s live stories and he has also watched some other Bitesize programmes about history and geography.
