Welcome to St Josephine's Class Page

Hello and welcome back to school St Josephine's Superstars!!

 

We hope you have had a super half term break, filled with lots of autumnal activities (we have heard about lots of plans for autumn walks and pumpkin picking)! 

 

This term is our favourite as it is the run up to Christmas, which is especially magical in a catholic school - we are so lucky!

 

Please see below to keep posted on any new information, dates or news.

Notices:

 

  • Children have been allocated a reader day- they need to bring their reading book in on that day. Their books will be changed if required on this allocated day. On this day, your child will visit the library to choose a reading book for pleasure which they will keep in class to read in their free time. 

 

  • Homework is handed out on Fridays and due in the following Wednesday. Every homework task needs to be completed to earn a stamp at the front of the homework book. A whole term of stamps = a prize!

 

  • Spellings are handed out with their homework and they will be tested the following Friday. 

 

  •  PE lessons take place on a Tuesday. Please remember to bring your PE kit into school at the beginning of each week. 

 

  • Please make sure all clothing items are clearly labelled with your child's name, this includes PE Kits.

 

  • A reusable water bottle should be named and brought into school daily for your child. 

 

  • Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS) should be used at every opportunity. Being able to fluently recall times table facts is extremely important! We are going to be using TTRS daily in class and it would be amazing if you could use it at home as well.

 

  • Purple Mash, TTRS and My Maths passwords have been given out - please see the front of your child's reading record for their log in details. Please continue to explore these wonderful resources. Homework may sometimes be set via the above, so please keep passwords safe.

Clay Egyptian Sphinx Making

Chinese New Year Dance Workshops - Thank you Miss Flower for kindly organising this for us!

Some photos from our visits from dentists and their assistant from dental practices in Dartford and Swanley!

And to top off our festive feel good day, we also learnt about the significance of Christingles and then had a go at making them (of course followed by a photoshoot by the Christmas tree!)

We also became chocolatiers and designed and made our own chocolate bars ... BEST DAY EVER!!!

We met Mrs Claus and her special helpers today!

Snow much fun!

XMAS 2022

Today, we were honoured to go and sing for our elderly neighbours at Birchwood Heights! We had a super time and we hope they did too;

Our Class Advent Calendar

Today we practised giving persuasive speeches! Miss Day was blown away (and was thoroughly persuaded that Tom really did see a Sausage Lion)

Our visit to Shorne Country Park! A big thank you to Mrs Moran for organising it for us!

We had a special Zoom call with a guest from Grenada, who let us know what life in the Caribbean is like!

Wearing purple to raise money for Grief Awareness Day 2022

Today, we investigated how the digestive system works using Weetabix and orange juice ... Ask us all about it (but please don't give us Weetabix for breakfast for a while)

Here we are, enjoying a Stone Age story book read in French by our very talented friend!

Another week, another science experiment. This time: how long will it take for an ice cube to melt and evaporate? Ask us to find out!

In Science this week, we investigated chocolate melting times. Which do you think melted the quickest: milk, dark or white?

In Science, we investigated whether gas weighs anything by releasing the CO2 from some bottles of lemonade! Ask us about it!
