Welcome toSt Joseph's Catholic Academy'Live Like Jesus'


Welcome to Reception Class!


Welcome to our EYFS!

My name is Mrs Chadbourne and I am the Reception Class Teacher.

Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Ellis.


Our Topics for the year are:

Autumn 1: Would a Dinosaur make a good pet?

Autumn 2: How is Africa different to where I live?

Spring 1+2: Which pigs house would you feel safest in?


Key Information:

We will be doing PE on a Monday therefore, the children will need their full PE kit in School on a Monday.

The children will be going on a Woodland Walk on Tuesdays.


Mrs Ellis and Mrs Carr will be teaching the class on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.


We shall be hearing your child individually read twice a week, providing them with key words to learn by sight or letter sounds.  Please continue to hear your child read at home as much as possible.

Please also remember to complete any ‘Star Moments’ and return to school for us to celebrate your child’s achievements. We love to hear all about what they have been doing out of school!



The children will be assessed on the end of year expectations which support the New National Curriculum. To view these please click on the 'Curriculum' tab and click on the 'End of Year Expectations' link.


You are always welcome to discuss any concerns and we do appreciate time spent at home supporting children with their work.
