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!


Maple Class essential information

  • Your child will read once a week in school with a teacher and these books will be sent home on a Friday. They will be changed on a Friday so please ensure the book is in their bag this day.
  • Please could you read at home with your child each day as this will really help your child. Reading is a life skill that we really want your child to achieve before they leave Reception.
  • We do ask for a weekly £1 donation, which we use towards extra snacks, baking materials and craft materials. This does help us provide extra special things for your child’s learning and it is gratefully received. A donation tin will be put outside our class entrance each week.
  • Our PE day is on a Tuesday. From January 2022 the children will need plain black jogging bottoms or shorts, a white t-shirt and jumper. They will also need pumps.
  • On Monday we go outside for Muddy Monday, we go outside in all weather conditions so wellies and waterproof clothing are essential. These should be kept in school at all times.
  • Cups and water are available at all times for children in the day. 
  • Home learning will be sent home every each week for you to practise something we have learnt at home during the week. Anything that you do at home can be shared in their home learning book. It is an amazing celebration at the end of the year to seethe learning you have done together!
