Walk for the Good Shepherd!

What a fun-filled afternoon we had this Friday! We went on a sponsored walk up to Killinghall Country Park all in aid of the Good Shepherd appeal. We had a fantastic time in the sunshine. Well done year 2 and thank you to all of the parents that helped. 

Stations of the Cross afternoon

We had an amazing and very reflective afternoon on Thursday, exploring the stations of the cross through a range of different activities. The children prayed and related their own experiences at each stage.

Last terms star writer was Lucja. Well done!

 

Exploring other faiths

We spent our 'other faiths' afternoon looking at Islam. We explored the five pillars of Islam and also explored Islamic art and then had a go ourselves. 

Materials Matter

This term in science we have been exploring materials and their properties. This has included learning about waterproof materials, looking at man made and natural materials and even some art work. We have been super scientists and have set up lots of different investigation. We have learnt so much already.

I’m Mrs Perry and this is my third year at St Joseph’s, although the last two years were spent in KS 2.    I love my job because working with children means that every day is different and guaranteed to be full of excitement, smiles and laughter. My favourite subjects are maths and computing although I do thoroughly enjoy teaching all of the curriculum subjects. Outside of school I enjoy running, baking and going on long walks with my husband and dog. I am really looking forward to teaching year 2 this year; my aim is for us to learn lots whilst having fun! In year 2 we have been settling into our bright new classroom really well. We have an RE focus area that we gather around for collective worship and children can access a range of resources here to help them reflect. Our maths area is set up so that the children can access the equipment they need independently. They are also encouraged to try the challenges on the maths display. The English display is also a working wall, designed to help embed their English skills. There is also an area of this display reserved to celebrate the children’s writing throughout the year. We love our reading corner and we have already spent lots of time reading together there.                                     We love our new classroom and can’t wait to enjoy the rest of the academic year here!
