Our Learning Journey

Term 1 - Me & My Community

In their very first term at school, your child will learn about the St Joseph's school community, our school values and friendships. They will explore the school grounds and find out about all the people in school who are there to help them. They will begin to understand how they are special and unique and how everyone’s family is different. They will take part in practical activities to support them to build new friendships and explore what makes a good friend. They will also find out about people in the community who help us, including doctors, nurses, and the emergency services.

For information on specific learning areas please read our Term 1 information below.

Here are some ideas to support your child at home with this topic: 

  • Look at family photographs together and discuss who is part of your family and extended family.
  • Look at baby photographs and talk about how they have grown.
  • Look at any childhood photographs of parents and grandparents.
  • Talk about the things you like to do together and places you like to go
