This week was Science Week at St Joseph's. All Pink classes enjoyed a trip to Paddington Rec to explore and search for minibeasts with Urbanwise. It was lovely to get out into the fresh air during the beautiful weather. We have also been shown exciting experiments with dry ice, slime and sherbert!

A big well done to all the Year 2's who have now completed all their KS1 SATS. They have put in a fantastic effort and should be very proud!

Reminder: Pink 3 are off to Forest School on Monday 20th May.

Thank you

This week in Maths, Pink Classes have been reviewing our knowledge of place value, addition and recognising that addition and subtraction are inverse operations.

We were also lucky enough to have another visit from the science museum today. The children were treated to a Bubble Show ! It was very exciting, Miss Windle even went inside a bubble ! It was a blast !

Looking forward to seeing everyone back at school on Tuesday 7th May.
Enjoy the bank holiday weekend.

Welcome back! We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter break. The children have started back this term with lots of enthusiasm which is great to see.

On Thursday Pink classes visited the National Gallery. The classes explored the museum with guides talking about still life paintings, landscapes and Rembrandt. We then had a look around Trafalgar Square before heading back to school for a talk by the Science Museum. The science museum presented a fantastic story called the 'Not so Sleepy Hedgehog' which focused on light and shadows. A very busy and exciting day indeed!

Pink 1 are off to Forest School today with Pink 2 visiting next Thursday 2nd May and Pink 3 on Monday 20th May.

Have a lovely weekend.

This week our R.E focus has been Holy Week. We have retold the story of Palm Sunday, looked at how we remember Maundy Thursday and walked through the Stations of the Cross.

In Maths the children have completed some tests and they all worked really hard to do as much as they could.

Our English focus has continued to be related to our topic work and we have been learning more about the sites of London.

Wishing you a joyful Easter.

This week we have focussed on our Geography topic ‘Where in Britain?’ We have recovered that Britain is made up of four countries and we also know their capital cities.

In Maths we have been working on fractions - the year 1s have been focusing on finding 1/2 of a shape. Whereas the year 2s have been looking at finding 1/2 or 1/4 of an amount.

In R.E we thought about one of the practices - charity - that we practice during Lent and thought about the charities we support.

We hope you have a relaxing and peaceful weekend.
