At St Joseph's, our curriculum is based around the National Curriculum. Our Topics ensure that all themes are cohesive, relevant and that children make great progress, whilst enjoying their learning! Recent topics include - The Wild West, On the Stage, Land of Giants, Growing our own, Can we make it better?
We are really pleased that we have our own Forest School on site. We welcome Mrs Owens to our school every week for Forest School. All classes spend time in our Forest School area, learning about the outdoors and taking part in fun activities all linked with the class topics. Every session is finished with hot chocolate around the camp fire!
When your child is taking part in Forest School please ensure they bring in old clothes and wellie boots as they are will be out in all weather and are sure to get muddy - but all whilst having lots of fun!
At St Joseph's we want children to have the opportunity to try as many things as possible. Who knows where their talents may lie! We are lucky enough to have Clare Felix teaching music from Yr 1-6 . The children have performed and watched concerts such as the Bournemouth Symphony orchestra. The children learn to read music and to play a different instrument each term such as: steel pan drums or glockenspiels. The children love the release and freedom whole class music brings.
