Year 1 children would like to introduce to you our Tre House Tales characters.
School Council last year voted to improve our school environment. Inspired by Aled Apple, a character from Tree House Tales our (handwriting/ grammar/ story writing scheme, they suggested that we should build some St Joseph’s Tree Houses. Thanks to Mr Coughlin our trusted Caretaker they were installed during the Summer holidays.
Schools’ Council, three children from Year 2, Year 1 and Reception, met on Wednesday to discuss plans for the future.
Our School castle will be taken down by Mr Coughlin during February Half Term. Children shared with Ms Beaumont and Mrs O’Leary their ideas from a previous meeting with Mrs Turner. If possible children would like to continue with the tree house idea and include slide, climbing ramp, periscope, climbing ladder. Ms Beaumont will discuss the possibility of installing 3 separate small playhouse towers with Mrs Coughlin. Watch this post!
All children have rights. These rights are the things that children need to be safe, healthy and happy. The United Nations has a list of all the rights that children have. This list is called the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, or UNCRC for short.
Our School Council, have been working on some of these rights. Please take some time to have a look at the display in the main hall.
This term we will be working on Article 29
Your right to become the best that you can be.
and Article 6
You have the right to life and to grow up to be healthy.
This work will be underpinned by Jesus’ call to be Loving and Compassionate*
