I hope Reception children are enjoying their Easter holidays!

Dates for your diary:

Class assembly - 




Children will be taking home a reading book and reading log each week. Please ensure children have these in their book bags each school day. 

Children also have their own Tapestry Early Learning Journal online and remember you can add observations of your child from home which can count to appropriate assessment.

Some children are also bringing home spellings so watch out for these in book bags. Tests take place on a Friday.



Children are making good progress in their phonics. At St Josephs we follow the phonics play planning structure which incorporates the joy of Jolly Phonics! The children love the songs and actions that we use to help us learn the sounds. Songs are on Youtube if you would like to have a look!
