Home Learning Week Commencing 13.07.2020


At St Joseph's our children are taught English following a Talk for Writing approach.  The following link will allow children to access a unit of work (this work will cover two weeks).  School have made a voluntary donation to Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in order to access these resources.  Please use the link below to access the resources.


As we have reached our final week in the school year we have planned some alternative home learning based on another faith.  We hope the children will enjoy the range of activities.  Maths work is available as usual.

The links below are excellent at supporting home learning: To support Maths. They are also posting live Maths lessons between 10-11am.  All subjects. Free access code-PARENTSTWINKLHELPS All subjects. They have home learning packs and free interactive resources.




Welcome to Reception Class!



My name is Miss Montgomery and I am the Reception Class Teacher.

Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Ellis, Mrs Carr and Mrs Stone



Key Information:

We will be doing PE each week so the children will need their full PE kit in School at all times.

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



We shall be hearing your child read individually regularly throughout the 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.
