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 web page, 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 ask Miss Howell.


P.E. will be on a Friday and will begin week beginning 10th September 2018.

Forest School will be on a Thursday and will start on 20th September 2018.

 Bruno Bear

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

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

Bruno 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 Bruno ends up in!
