Homework - 'Autumn Term 2020'



International School Certificate

Prep Six have been preparing their letters to their prospective pen-friends in Sabadell, Barcelona as part of our school's International School Certificate.


Reception Class children have enjoyed practising their letter formation and phase three phonics words. The children wrote in the salt with their finger, gave the tray a shake and started again. Lots of fun was had by everyon  

The EYFS children at St Joseph’s have spent a week learning about the life of Edmund Rice. We looked at the Icon and noticed the spirals. This inspired us to spend time cutting out and drawing spirals. We have also learned that Edmund Rice lived in a house called Westcourt and this house had a thatched roof. The children have made some beautiful models of the house and also spent time making jigsaws and bookmarks. We finished our week by learning a simplified version of the Edmund Rice Prayer.



Prayer for Blessed Edmund

O God, we thank you for the life of Edmund Rice.
He opened his heart to Christ present in those oppressed by poverty and injustice.
May we follow his example of faith and generosity.
Grant us the courage and compassion of Edmund
As we seek to live lives of love and service.
We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen
