Water Bottles (Please fill with water only).

Your child is welcome to bring a water bottle to school each day to drink in class. It must however has a 'sports lid' that eliminates (well reduces the risk of spills). We encourage the children to take them home each evening, rinse them and bring them in full each day.

Autumn 2- Religious Education

 

During RE this term we will be discussing what it means to welcome and be welcomed. We will continue to talk about our class family and our home family. During this topic we will experience a Baptism and understand that through this rite we are welcomed in to God's family. 

Welcome

As part of our religion topic 'Welcome', we talked about how we feel welcomed in the classroom and how we can make others, who visit our classroom, feel welcome. We made badges that said 'Welcome to Reception. I am happy to help'. We wore them around school and helped out where needed.

A Baptism in Early Years

 

Today we were joined by Father Alf to celebrate the Baptism of our doll Thomas. Thomas looked beautiful in his christening robes and was presented for Baptism by Jax and Mia. His Godparents were chosen by all the children and included Ethan, Amelia, Elliott and Lily. Thomas received his shawl and candle at the end of his celebration.

 

A visit from the library

 

Today, (8.11.16), Mrs Peachey from the Rochdale Library Service, came to visit us. She brought an exciting bag with her containing two lovely books and a few special friends! We really enjoyed listening to her stories and joining in with the actions and repetitive phrases.

 

Parents Maths Challenge

 

Thank you to all the parents who came to take part in our maths challenge activities on Monday 17th October. We had two, fun packed sessions, which took place in our indoor and outdoor classrooms. The children and adults completed tasks such as skittles, hoopla, pattern printing, bike racing, height measuring, hopscotch and delivering letter to the correct house. All these activities highlighted that maths is fun!!

Parents Maths Challenge

Autumn 1 

 

This half term we welcome all our new children and their families to St Joseph's primary. Our topic is 'All about me'. We are very excited to learn all about our children and their interests and hope to help settle them into their new school setting.  We have lots of fun and exciting learning opportunities planned.

 

 

 

Religious Education    Autumn 1

 

This half term in RE we are exploring the importance of our names; Christian names, family names, class name and school name and how we are all part of God's family. We will join in fun activities to help learn the names of the teachers and our classmates. Children will select their name card each day and attempt to write it. They will start to learn our class prayers and learn what it means to 'Walk in the steps of Jesus', being kind to each other with our words and deeds.

Multi-Faith Week, Autumn 1

 

This week (beginning 17th October 2016) is our school's Multi-Faith week. In Reception we will be learning all about Islam. At the end of the week we will share what we have learned with another class.
