Our Learning Journey

How have I changed over time? 

Where does our food come from?

We will explore what constitutes a healthy lifestyle, including eating fruit and vegetables, exercise and teeth brushing. We will find out about life on a farm and about baby animals.

Once Upon a Time

Who are Kings and Queens and what do they do? 

In this Once Upon a Time project, we will visit many of the wonderful traditional tale stories including, Cinderella, Goldilocks, The Ginger Bread Man and the Three Little Pigs. We will listen to the stories, have the chance to act out the stories in our play. We will also listen to alternative contemporary stories to see different viewpoints from the characters. We will use the stories to think about how life has changed from when the stories were written and we will also make up our own versions, create masks, props and puppets to act out our stories to others.

In the Starry Night project, we will explore the differences between the world at night time compared with daytime, through a range of exciting and creative activities. We will find out about nocturnal animals and how they find food when it is dark. We will find out about people who work at night and the different jobs that people do when we are asleep. We will discuss bedtime routines and the importance of a good night’s sleep and we will explore the night sky and find out about the Moon and stars.

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.
