Friday 4th February 2022

Well done to the winners of this weeks class certificates!

Hinduism (WC: 22.11.21)

This week we have been learning about Diwali; the festival of light. The children enjoyed retelling the story of Rama and Sita, learning about the Goddess of wealth; Lakshmi and designing and making Diwali lamps and Rangoli patterns.

DT- Smoothie Making!

We loved our DT week. We enjoyed tasting and classifying different fruit and vegetables and discovering where they grow. We especially loved prepping, blending and tasting our own smoothies. Yum yum!

The children loved attending mass this week. Thank you Fr Stephen!


The children enjoyed using a world map to find the equator. We then explored hot and cold countries based on their position to the equator.

Well done to our fourth virtue (Patience) certificate winner.

Well done to our third virtue (Hope) certificate winner.

17.11.21- The National Railway Museum

Year 1 had an amazing time looking at trains from now and the past at the National Railway Museum. In History, we have been learning about how transport has changed through time, with a focus on Stephenson’s rocket and the impact this had on transport. We were so lucky that we could see it at the museum. It was huge! We also enjoyed exploring different trains like the Mallard and the Flying Scotsman.

Well done to Year 1 for their amazing contributions to Harrogate Food Bank!

The children enjoyed PE this week which was led by Harrogate Town.

The children used fieldwork and observations to find the human and physical features of St Joseph’s Primary School.

The children have loved being back at school and are enjoying their new classroom. They have been so welcoming and have really impressed me with how quickly they have settled.
