St Joseph's Catholic Primary School Reddish


Nursery Share in our Learning

Spring 2 2020

Our staff team- Mrs Harrison, Miss McCarthy, Mrs Baxter, Miss Waldron and Mrs McIlwraith.

If you have any questions or if there is anything you are not sure about, please don’t hesitate to ask- we are here to help.

The children have settled well and continue to be a pleasure to teach. They enjoy our carpet sessions to start the day including our daily Lectio Divina sessions. They are calm, attentive and are eager to learn and meet new challenges. We are very grateful for your positive feedback and support.

We welcomed 13 new children in January. They have settled well and have quickly become part of our special St. Joseph’s family.

We look forward to welcoming a further 3 children in February.

Following the recent flyer that was sent to all parents, could we remind all parents to make sure that a bag is left in school containing 1 or more changes of clothes to be used if children need to be changed during the school day. Thank you.

We really need a supply of spare clothes to use in school and any donations would be very much appreciated.


Can you please make sure that you order your child’s school lunches with them each day. Sometimes we cannot tell whether a lunch has been ordered which leads to problems at lunch time. Many thanks for your help.


During this half term we will be learning about Lent and Easter. We will find out about what these important festivals mean for us and the ways in which we celebrate.

Focused Texts

The Hungry Caterpillar

We will read this fantastic book that is a great favourite among the staff. We will find out about the life cycle of caterpillars and butterflies. We will find out about different types of food and healthy eating. We can use the text to develop Maths skills. The text provides lots of creative opportunities.


Jasper’s Beanstalk

This text is about a cat called Jasper who tries hard to grow a beanstalk and has connections with the fairy tale- Jack and the Beanstalk. It helps children to learn about the days of the week.



In Numeracy we will learn to read and write numbers up to 10 and count and draw groups of objects up to 10. We will continue to look for and name simple shapes in the environment and use shapes to make pictures and patterns.
