St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, learn and live in Christ!

Welcome back to all our children and families and a special welcome to the new children and staff who have joined us! The parents of our Year 6 leavers said...We are so glad we picked the right school...An excellent school. I do not hesitate to recommend it to any parent...An excellent foundation to build on....A fantastic approach to learning and life...Brilliant teachers and school who have touched our lives with the love they show our children. I think this academic year is going to be another fantastic one!


Welcome to Year 2!


Mrs Slack is our Teacher and Mrs Michaels is our Teaching Assistant.  

On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons Mrs McVeigh teaches us.


The Chosen People

We will learn that we are chosen by God and learn that God chose certain people to lead and guide his people. We will learn that God called Abraham and that God chose Moses to be a great leader. We will also learn about how Samuel responded to God’s call and find out about the story of Daniel in the lions’ den.

We will have an opportunity to reflect on Abraham’s trust in God and learn that we should always trust God.
We will learn that God chooses unexpected people and will be given the opportunity to reflect on our own response to God’s call.
