African Artwork

Year 1 looked at different sunset images and decided to create our own!  We looked at the shape of different animals and trees to create our silhouettes. 

Our Year 1 Tree

In year 1 we have adopted a tree in the playground as part of our seasonal changes topic. We are excited to see how it will change through the seasons!


Macmillan Coffee Fundraiser

Friday 29th September 2017

Year 1 had a tasty afternoon eating cakes and drinking juice all in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.  We had a great time catching up with our year 5 reading buddies. 



Our First Week

We are all excited to be in Year one with Miss Chappel, our new class teacher and Mrs Shanbhag who helps us every day with our work.

We have all been very welcoming to the 5 brand new children in our class and hope they enjoy St Joseph's as much as us!

We are all settling well into our new classroom and getting stuck into year one learning! 

We learnt about our class Saint this week - St Patrick. Come see our display board outside our classroom and look at some of the interesting facts we found out about him, and see the beautiful shamrock collages we made. 

This week we also met our year five reading buddies, which we were all super excited about, year five too! Our buddies will listen to us read or read one of our favourite stories to us. We hope we can show year five what amazing readers year one are!
