Maths Day

What an amazing day the children have had! Year 1 got a chance to show off their maths skills by counting in 10s from any given number! What superstars they are! The children also dazzled us with their amazing costumes. We are grateful for the thought and effort that has gone into creating these wonderful outfits!

The children had the opportunity to spend time in the other classes in their phase where they created symmetrical nature cards, fraction fish and cityscapes.

Learning Maths through art has truly brought the artistic nature out in children!

Fraction Fun


This week Year 1 have been learning about fractions.  The children learned how to halve and quarter shapes and numbers.


The children rounded off the week off by creating their own fraction pizza!


Have a lovely weekend!


Maths Parent Workshops

Today KS1 had some special visitors to help them with solving worded problems using the four operations!

We used hundred squares to help us visualise the number sentences and used written methods to help us record:

We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

On M0nday we celebrated Christmas at St Josephs by having our CHRISTMAS PARTY. All the KS1 phase swept into the hall where Santa’s little helpers (the teaching assistants) had set up the hall for our Christmas Party!

As you can see a fantastic and merry time was had by all. Even the staff members got a Christmas cheer on!


The KS1 phase would like to thank all the kind donations that you offered that really helped the day come together. Mr Bhol would also like to thank all parents/carers for the 1 stone of weight that he put on.


Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
