St Joseph’s RC Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All staff, governors and volunteers are expected to share this commitment. For more information please see our safeguarding policy which can be found under Key Information > Policies & Statements > Safeguarding Policy.
The word document above describes and explains all activities for Maths, Writing, Reading, Spelling, Religion and Topic for the children to complete while the school may be closed. If your child is fit and able, then please encourage them to do as much as possible. It can be done in any order, although we recommend that Maths tasks, reading and spelling are completed every day.
Below is a variety of links, videos and documents which will support your children in completing their tasks. All of the children's work can be completed in the pink exercise book which they have brought home as part of their 'Home Learning Pack'
During any school closure, we will be updating the website as often as possible with new information, so please check it regularly.
Try to keep fit and active by exercising everyday for at least 30 minutes. Check out these fun videos that Mr Riley has found for you!

We Are Vloggers - 21.2.20
After learning all about different Ancient Civilizations, we created a presentation of what we have learned throughout this topic. We used Microsoft Powerpoint to create our documents of facts about Ancient Egypt, Ancient Sumer and the Indus Valley. We then presented our Powerpoints to the rest of the class to show each other what we had learned.
World Book Week - WB 10/2/20
We began the week by reading 'The Lost Happy Endings' by Carol Ann Duffy. We explored the vocabulary in this book and throughout the week we designed, made and decorated settings from a particular scene in the book. The children then used their settings as a guide to discuss and generate some setting description vocabulary, including using their senses, as well as similes and metaphors.
Internet Safety Day - 24.1.20
We watched a performance about staying safe online, and how the decisions we make when using apps or different games, have consequences which can be good or bad. Afterwards, we performed our own scenarios of how we should respond to certain things we may come across online.
Christmas Decorations - WB 9.12.19
We designed Christmas decorations for our trees at home. We made salt-dough and used shape cutters to choose our design. Once they were dry, we pained them and threaded some ribbon through so they could hang up on our Christmas trees at home!
Cooking a Healthy Pasta - 11.12.19
During our Healthy Eating unit in Science, we learned all about the 5 main food groups and what each group gives to our body. We used our knowledge to plan, prepare and make the perfect healthy pasta dish using fresh ingredients that came from all 5 food groups. Some of us even tried some new foods for the very first time!
5.12.19 - Maths
We began to work with larger numbers when multiplying. We used concrete materials to help solve a variety of multiplication challenges.
Today we discussed the 5 main food groups. We thought about what foods we eat on a regular basis and looked at what groups each food belongs to. Are we eating the right amount of each group?
Welcome to a brand new year in St Joseph's. For many of the students in Class 8 it is a big step to the start of their KS2 journey and we have been spending the first few weeks getting to know some routines and expectations.
We have been settling into our new class very well, meeting our new class mates, as well as staff.
Throughout the year this page will be updated as often as possible to you keep our parents right up to date with all the fantastic things that are happening in Class 8!
I hope you are all as excited about the new school year as we are at St Joseph's.
Mr Green (Class Teacher) and Miss Worsley (Teaching Assistant)
