Class 1

Welcome to Class 1.

Welcome to Early Years at St Joseph's RC Primary School. We are a mixed Foundation Stage 1 (FS1) and Foundation Stage 2 (FS2) class.


In the Early Years we follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. We introduce new topics each half term and are also keen to pursue the children's interests and draw learning opportunities out of their play. As a result of this, our long term curriculum is broadly planned and topics are flexible.

Come and See 'and spend the rest of the day with Him'

'Come and See' is a Catholic Primary Religious Education programme for Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.


The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky (Margaret McMillan 1925).

We value the unique insight that parents can provide into their children's learning and acknowledge that learning begins and continues in the home environment. By working in close partnership with parents, we seek to nurture in the children the development of trust, respect, confidence, resilience, independence and the love of learning.


As parents you will be provided with regularly updates with what we are doing in class through weekly home-school diary entries as well as through our electronic learning journal Tapestry.
