St. Josephs’s Class (Year R)



Welcome to St. Joseph's Class!

It's very exciting to be welcoming a new group of children and parents into our school.  There can be a lot of information to take in over the next couple of weeks, so please use this page as often as you need.  It will be kept up to date with relevant information and news.

On our webpage, you will find lots of information about our class and what we will be getting up to in the up-coming weeks.  If you cannot find any information, please do not hesitate to contact Miss Howell.



P.E:  Will be on a Friday and will begin w/b 18th September 2017

Forest School:  Will be on a Thursday and the date will be confirmed soon.

Biscuit Bear

Biscuit Bear is our wonderful class bear, who just loves adventure! Throughout the week, Biscuit keeps an eye on the children and at the end of the week chooses a child to go home with for the weekend!

Biscuit looks for children who follow our school rules all the time and are making a positive effort towards school life.

Biscuit comes with his Adventure Book, where you can document his adventures over the weekend with your child.  This can consist of photographs, writing, drawings and anything else you wish to include!

I really look forward to seeing what mischief Biscuit ends up in!

During the Autumn Term, St. Joseph's will be learning their Set 1 sounds.  These sounds are:

m  a  s  d  t   i  n  p  g  o  c  k  u  b  f  e  l  h

If you wish to practise these sounds at home, please check that both you and your child are pronouncing the sounds correctly.  You can do this on the Read Write Inc. website following the link below.

This website has videos for practising the sounds and also the handwriting of the letter as well.


I look forward to getting to know your children this term and seeing the wonderful things they can do.
