St Helen’s Catholic Primary School

Autumn Term 1


Week 8

A huge well done to class 1 children especially our Reception children for successfully completing  their first 8 weeks of school! We have shed  many tears (children and teachers), but we have also made and shared many happy memories. Take a look at what we enjoyed doing in week 8. We hope to come back refreshed and ready to make more happy memories.

Week 7

This week we carried out different maths "investigations".We had to find out wether the size or shape of conkers or the height of guttering affected how far conkers roll.We also had to find other objects that can roll.


For Child Led Worship, we were learning about how we can look after God's creation. We promised to do our part by picking up litter and ensuring we were not littering ourselves.

Week 6

We have had another busy week. We brought items or toys that are special to us and talked about what made them special.

In P.E, we  took advantage of the warm weather and had our lesson outside.

We also enjoyed independent learning in both our indoor and outdoor environments.

Week 1

Class 1 children have made a good start to the start of the new school year. Year ones have done a fantastic job welcoming the new children to our school community. We are very proud of how mature and responsible they have become over the summer holiday.

We spent the week getting to know each other and exploring our school environment.We also painted self portraits for our display.

One family, growing together in love and faith, flourishing in an ever-changing world. We love, we believe, we shine, we achieve.
