Firstly, welcome to the St Joseph’s family!

Our main priority is to ensure each child is happy and enjoys their journey throughout our School!

Our Learning

In Cherry class we strive to create a calm, happy and loving learning environment where children achieve their maximum potential. Working together as a class family to learn key skills needed for future life which include friendships, communication skills, physical skills needed for writing, a strong foundation in numbers and a thorough knowledge about the world and people around them. 


We teach children a variety of topics to ignite new interests and teach new knowledge and vocabulary. We are also very lucky in the early years to be able to follow children's current interests and learn lots of new skills and knowledge in the moment by following their lead. Learning to speak confidently, early reading skills and learning to count are essential life skills that we practise each and every day, as a whole class, in small groups and within the children's play. Full details of the topics and skills we teach can be found below.


Throughout the school year we will also enhance your child's learning experience by providing wow days, these include visitors into school, tweekly forest friday's. We look forward to a fun filled  year


Cherry Class Essential Information

    • Our PE day is Thursday am and Friday pm your child will not need a PE kit we however from January 2022 we will begin to take our shoes and socks off.
    • On Fridays we go outside on the field we go outside in all weathers so wellies are essential and to be left in school on your child’s peg. Waterproofs are optional as we do have some in school.
    • Fresh water, milk and a fruit snack is provided daily.
    • Our nursery library will be accessible on Wednesdays after each session where your child can take home a book to share with you we ask that you please return one before taking another.
    • Finally, we do ask for a voluntary weekly £1 donation which we use to purchase extra snacks, purchase baking materials and enhanced craft materials. Your support each week really does help us to provide the extra special things for your child’s learning and it is gratefully received. A donation tin will be outside our class entrance each week. 
    • Please ensure that your child have a spare change of clothes  that is named, in school at all times.
