St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, Learn, Grow.


Advent Term 2


This half term we will be focussing on our topic 'Festivals and Seasons.'

In English we will look at non-fiction books linked to our topic as well as some stories such as We're Going on a Bear Hunt, The Snowman and The Gruffalo.

In Topic we will be looking at the four seasons, climate and the weather.

In RE we will be learning about Baptism and the Nativity.

In Maths we will be be continuing our work on subitising - we are getting very good at 'fast eyes' now and 'don't count! Know the amount.' We can quickly look at a group of objects and tell you how many there are without counting in 1s. We will also be working on counting and the ordinality and cardinality of numbers. 


We are looking forward to another busy half term in Reception and having lots of fun learning through play as we go!
