St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, learn and live in Christ!

Well we did not get off to the best start to the Spring Term did we! I know it is frustrating for you. We share that frustration but we know that the lockdown is to increase our levels of safety. We can persevere! Stay strong team St Joe's! You can contact your child's teacher via the email at the top of the class webpage or ring the office if you cannot email. If you need me I am here for you too so get in touch by email to We miss the children already and look forward to being together with them again. Keeping you all in my prayers and thoughts. Mrs Hodges


Welcome to our Reception Class Page!

Thank you for all of your hard work Reception! We are missing you lots and are so proud of all of your learning. This week in Literacy, we will be learning about the story of The Enormous Turnip, the sounds or, z, w,ng and the spelling 'and'. In Maths, we will be learning about mass and capacity. We will be thinking about things that are light and heavy, things that are empty and full and how to compare them. I look forward to seeing all of your super work! I have changed the layout of the webpage to make it easier to follow, I hope it has! I will be uploading videos and as always, email me for any ideas or anything you need :)
