Eucalyptus enjoying drama as part of their English lessons...

We enjoyed bringing the 'Barrowquest' to life with our drama work during our English lessons.

Did Lin choose the door made of Ash, Oak, Thorn or Elm to walk through on the next part of his quest?

Thank you to the STEM team from RAF Halton for a fabulous afternoon of problem solving - designing and making structures out of paper!

Well done to the girls' teams for winning each time!


A Year 5 child in Eucalyptus wrote this account of finding herself in a storm near the Eiger...a fabulous piece of writing.

We visited RAF Brize Norton for a morning of survival training. We learnt a great deal and also had fun!

SVP Mini Vinnies

Children in Key Stage 2 have volunteered for our 'Mini Vinnies' group at St Joseph's again this year. 

Mini Vinnies is the children's section of St Vincent de Paul Society.

We meet every two weeks and we enjoy praying together, sharing scriptures and organising ways in which we can help others in our local community and beyond.

We provided the ingredients and made soup together at school on the Friday and served it after Mass on Saturday 12th October.

One parishioner said...'it was the best lunch, not just the delicious soup but the joyfulness of the servers was wonderful too!'

Our next project is the 'shoebox appeal' which was very successful last year.



Our fantastic soup servers!

Helping out at the Church Christmas fete


The children enjoyed doing some printing during art. They created a 'mountain image' using pasta, string, rice, bubble wrap...

They then brushed or rolled over the picture with paint to create their picture.

Algebra challenge!

Calling all Year 6 children... can you solve this challenge using your knowledge from our maths lessons this week?

Find the three possible solutions:

7g - 4h = 15


what about this one?

8t - 3u = 15


Can you work them out?

Can you make a sum of your own?





Our fantastic STEM day at Abingdon and Witney college:



The children took many fantastic photographs in our school grounds on a very beautiful frosty morning.

Well done Eucalyptus!


Eucalyptus scientists have worked in groups to decide on a hypothesis they wanted to investigate about exercise and heart rates.

They planned their investigations, ensured it would be a fair test and then they put each other through their paces to collect their data.


Our Spring term 2020 curriculum letter to parents:



Thank you to John Foster for visiting us again and giving us copies of his new poetry book to share across the school. We enjoyed reading some of the poems with John and of course reciting 'Bloomers in sky' once again!
