Physical activity


Here at St. Joseph's we have been celebrating the wide variety of sporting activities and competitions we participate in. We have also looked at how many children participate in an after school club in Key Stage Two and how many children choose to participate in playground leader activities at lunch time.

Our school has achieved the School Games Silver Award and is now aiming for GOLD in 2017!

Playground Leaders

Class 5 have been training to be Playground Leaders. We will be showing the younger children in school lots of exciting games and activities they can do at playtime.



Visit from Jeff Hendrick from BFC

Burnley Football club have been running workshops in class 5 on the importance of a healthy diet and healthy lifestyle.

The class also received a visit from Jeff Hendrick who plays football for the Burnley team.

During the visit, the children also got the chance to ask Jeff lots of questions about his own diet and learned why, as a professional footballer, eating well is such an important part of his job.

With plenty of questions prepped for the Republic of Ireland international, pupils queried Jeff about his favourite fruits and vegetables, what he likes to eat for breakfast before a game and even what his hobbies are.

After a big group photo, the pupils also had their certificates signed by the midfielder.

This visit was also filmed by Sky sports.
