Hello and thank you for visiting Year 1’s class page!

Please keep visiting this page for updates on our learning journey and all of the exciting topics we will be learning about. In Year 1, we follow the children’s interests and ensure all of the subjects taught in our National Curriculum link to the theme for the half term. We work together as a team, persevering and always trying our very best.

At St Joseph’s, we are incredibly grateful for the invaluable support that our parents and carers provide for our pupils. We know how well our families have been able to adapt to home learning so now that we can welcome all of our pupils back to school, we wanted to provide opportunities for our pupils to continue their learning at home, if they choose to. The homework given will prepare and support your child’s learning across the curriculum each half term. The homework tasks below are optional. If you would also like to read our homework policy, please follow the link below.
