The Curriculum at Saint Joseph's is taught through themes. We teach the children individual subjects but link them through a common theme.
Autumn Term Themes
The learning that the children are doing in school is now based around themes. The different themes that the children study are explained below. We would encourage parents to talk to their children about their learning, visit the library, take them on an appropriate trip or visit, conduct research on the internet, look at books, newspaper, photos that you have in the family home. This is invaluable knowledge that the children will then use when in school.
The children are learning about their families and why they are special.
