Morfa Bay  June 2015

 

For the first time this year we took pupils from Year 5 and 6 to Morfa Bay.  An Adventurous Activities weekend.  We left school on the Friday morning and arrived at Morfa Bay at dinner time.  The children were quickly organised into their dormitories and then attended a Welcome Meeting to explain what the weekend entailed. After the meeting it was apparent that the children were going to be extremely busy for three days experiencing activities that they have never attempted before.  The activities they were going to try were archery, bike racing, zip wire, assault course, body boarding, caving, orienteering, climbing high ropes,  climbing wall and woodland scramble walking and an evening at the beach, and of course a disco.

The staff at the centre were very experienced and encourage everybody to go that little bit further. The weekend was a great success and the staff who accompanied the children all expressed how well the children behaved and what they all  personally achieved.

On the Monday after the children had packed away and cleaned their rooms we attended our goodbye meeting and given some awards.  The top archer for the week-end was Joe Burton the banana man was Peppino Kemble and banana girl was Mary Atunes, These children were selected for their contribution to all the activities and to other children in the groups.

We will hopefully be returning next year so start saving !!!!!!!!!  An fantastic experince for the children.

 

A few pictures to show you all what a selection of activities and very happy faces.

Tuesday 3rd June. Key Stage 2 Sports Day

 

Another exciting morning of athletics  arranged at NIACC, Cyncoed  for the Key Stage 2 Sports Day. The pupils had the opportunity to  compete in 6 different events; high jump, long jump, javelin, sprint, obstacle and 200 metres.  The facilities at the centre are outstanding. The pupils were able to compete in  activities that are not possible at school due to our limited facilities. All children  had a good go at all activities and benefited from this experience. The day concluded with a whole school shuttle relay event in which all children participated and thoroughly enjoyed.

The team for the  National Catholic Sports Athletics Championships which will take place on Saturday, 20th June,  was selected from the fastest children in the sprint races. Well done to those children who have been selected to represent the school. 

Monday 1st June

We started the Summer term with our Foundation Sports Day at NIAC, Cyncoed.  All the pupils fully participated and wore their representative house colours. The children were all extremely excited when they arrived and saw the outstanding facilities which they would be using.  The children had the opportunity to compete in 6 activities; high jump, long jump, javelin, sprint, obstacle race and throwing bean bags at a target. The final event was a shuttle relay race in which all children participated to the best of their abilities.

The activities were undertaken with a balance of fun and enjoyment whilst those children who have a real competitive streak had the opportunity to excel ! All children tried their best. Who knows, this opportunity may produce a future star pupil in athletics for St. Joseph's School..........or even a future Olympiad ! Well done to all concerned.

Year 6 pupils had an enjoyable and exciting time in LLangrannog during the May half term. Here are some photographs showing them enjoying all the activities they encountered.  Top skier  Charlie B, top quad biker  Josue, top entertainer Grace, wall climber Rosalind. All stars in their own way

Year Four Science Investigation: We had a very busy afternoon. Mrs Wheeler had given us a challenge to find out which drinks would cause our teeth to decay. We worked in groups to decide which drinks we would test. We used red cabbage water to test how much acid was in each drink. We were amazed by some of the results. We didn't realise that orange juice and apple juice would be so bad for our teeth. When we mixed them with the cabbage water they turned bright red. This showed us that they contained a lot of acid. We also found out that energy drinks are bad for your teeth. The best drink for your teeth is water.
