Welcome toSt Mary and St Joseph'sRoman Catholic Primary SchoolBeing different, belonging together in the family of God

Bright lights, Big City - Summer 1


      We started our topic by writing down what we already know about 'London'.


  We found out more about 'Big Ben'.





  In our science lesson this week we talked about the different materials used to build    the 'London Landmarks' that we have been learning about.


 In pairs we sorted and wrote about 'man-made' and 'natural' materials.  Here are Kajus and  Callum hard at work.




  Thank you to the parents and grandparents who joined us for our baking session.  We    made delicious jam tarts ready for our 'Tea with the Queen' tomorrow.










     On Wednesday 27th April we were thrilled to have a visit from Her Majesty.


    As she arrived we stood respectfully whilst the National Anthem was played.


She sat on the special throne we had prepared for her and we asked her about her special birthday last week and wished her many happy returns.


The SMSJ News Team arrived. They had had a tip off we were expecting a very special guest.  The interviewed the Queen and filmed her on their i pad to show the rest of the school in Golden Book Assembly on Friday.

We offered the Queen the jam tarts we had baked the day before and a cup of tea.


We ate cakes and chatted politely during a wonderful 'Tea with the Queen' session.

After Sophia presented the Queen with a bouquet of flowers she waved goodbye and set off back to London.

A big thank you to all the parents who joined us for 'Tea with the Queen' We hope you enjoyed it!









                 + A Visit From a Paramedic + 


We were very lucky to have a visit from Mr Parker a   Paramedic  this week. 

We have been learning about London Transport  and  Emergency Vehicles  so we were very excited about being able to look inside and learn about the ambulance Mr Parker drives!


Mr Parker checked  Connor and Atia were healthy ...

                                                          and they were! 




 Miss Comberbach found out how heavy the pieces equipment a  Paramedic needs are to carry around.



 We watched the ramp go down so that stretchers and  wheelchairs can get aboard the ambulance.




 We learnt about all the useful items inside the ambulance that  make our lives safer when we may need to ring 999 and call a  Paramedic.


             Mr Parker you are a real life Superhero!




       We found our history work on

'The Great Fire of London'

really interesting and learnt   

     lots of facts and figures about this historic event.

We created this display by using collage to cover boxes and create flames.
