St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, Learn, Grow.



Welcome to St Joseph's and welcome to Advent term 1. 


We hope you had an enjoyable summer and you are ready for lots of fun and learning!


This half term we will be focussing on All About Me!

In English, we are reading The colour monster goes to school, All are Welcome and Handa's surprise. We are discovering new vocabulary, discussing events in the story and making predictions about what might happen next! We will carry out lots of exciting writing tasks linked to these books. We will focus on writing our names and perfecting our letter formation. 

In Topic we are talking about our bodies and how to look after them, focussing on the importance of brushing our teeth. We will also be learning about our community around us and finding out about the people who help us. 

In RE we are learning about ‘Myself'. The children will learn about how important they are and that God loves them all. 

In Maths we are learning to subitise! We are practising counting confidently to 10 and beyond and also learning how to write our numbers correctly. 

In Phonics we are starting Read Write Inc. We are learning the initial sounds and will start to recognise sounds in simple words.


We look forward to a fun half term in Reception!
