This weeks focus is Autumn. 

We would like you draw create or draw an Autumn picture. 

Can they tell you what is in their picture?

Ask your child to write sounds that match their picture. Such as: l for leaf

As a challenge - can they write a simple phrase: a red leaf


We enjoy singing this Autumn song at school -


However, pencil control and name writing is still an on going target.  Please keep encouraging your child to write their name each day and to hold a pencil in pincer grip.


We would love to see pictures of your child's work. Send them through the Dojo app. 

Reception B

My name is Miss Craig and I am very excited to be teaching in Reception B this year!

Welcome to Reception's class page, this is where you will some find key information and current learning the children are completing at the moment.

We encourage positive attitudes towards learning and school life and we love to watch the children's individual achievements blossom throughout the year. 

A main focus for Reception this year is Reading. You will hear all staff and children talking about reading daily. We have high expectations at St Josephs' and it is our goal to ensure your child is able to read before they leave Reception. Therefore, we expect all children to read at home every night to help give them the best start to their school life.

If you need to contact me for any reasons please don't hesitate to come and see me.
