St Joseph'sCatholic Primary & Nursery School

Reception / Year 1

 Welcome to our class page!


Our Reception/Year 1 team are:


Mrs Williams (Teacher) & Mrs Price (TA)




Welcome to the Autumn Term.  Our new topic is 'On This Day.'


This is a History based Topic that will cover:

The Great Fire of London, Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot, the Carnival & Christmas.


Our EYFS role play area will be transformed into a home corner with opportunities for the children to pretend to cook, iron, set the table, make phone calls and look after baby Millie. 



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 to enable us to hear them read. 


Homework books are sent home on Fridays, please ensure that they are returned completed by Wednesday to allow marking and resetting of work.


Reception 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.

We have been busy painting our Great fire of London backgrounds. We mixed our own colours with powder paints.

Today (9.10.20) our reception children have been working hard to make our outdoor area beautiful with some potted plants and bulbs.

Today (2.10.20) we made some glowing pop up fires. We were thinking about 'The Great Fire of London' Mrs Page thought they were fantastic.

Our reception children have been busy making bird feeders for the birds we spotted on our senses walk. They did a fantastic job!

We have made some brilliant 3D houses. They look like the houses from the time of 'The Great Fire of London' What an amazing job we have done!

Our senses walk around our school. We have been using our five senses to help us discover more about our school.
