Four Purposes


At St Joseph’s the Four purposes of the new Curriculum for Wales drive our provision for teaching and learning.  Through a broad and balanced curriculum, we enable all pupils to be:


Ambitious, capable learners ready to learn throughout their lives

Enterprising, creative contributors ready to play a full part in life and work

Ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world

Healthy, confident individuals ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society


PE takes place every Tuesday and every other Monday.

Pupils must wear PE kit into school on these days which they will wear all day.


PE Kit consists of:

  • House colour t-shirt (plain or with school logo) or white polo shirt.
  • Navy shorts or tracksuit bottoms.
  • Trainers.
  • Home clothes or football kits are not permitted.
  • Dates this half term: 15/01/24 & 29/01/24


Outdoor Learning

Outdoor Learning will take place every other Monday on the weeks that there is no PE on a Monday.

Pupils should bring in their outdoor clothes in a bag so they can change in school.

Outdoor Learning Kit consists of:

  • Wellies
  • Waterproof, warm coat
  • Waterproof trousers or jogging bottoms 
  • Skirts should not be worn during outdoor learning for health and safety reasons. Please provide a change of trousers or leggings for this lesson.

Class Charter

At the start of each year, our pupils reflect on what should be shared values of a rights-respecting classroom. Pupils consider, in conjunction with the UNCRC, their rights and responsibilities, to ensure that all pupils are happy, safe and can meet their full potential within the classroom environment. The charter is ‘signed’ by all pupils and is displayed in the classroom.

Typical Weekly Timetable

Please note that lesson timings are subject to change but PE, ICT and Welsh will always remain on the same day. English, Maths and Guided Reading will be taught in the mornings and additional subjects in the afternoons. Homework tests will be on a Thursday morning.


Home Learning Expectations

Each time your child begins a new Domain Unit e.g. Medieval Europe, a Knowledge Organiser and Learning at Home Domain Guidance will be stuck into homework books. This knowledge organiser allows you and your child to see the core knowledge for the domain of learning; the knowledge to be remembered. The Learning at Home Guidance gives parents, carers and pupils an overview of the domain, the key vocabulary, suggested reading materials and examples of independent projects that could be completed at home. You can also find these resources on the class page of the website under Domain Learning.


Each week, homework including spelling words to learn, maths learn-its and domain learn-its will be sent home in purple homework books. Your children should bring their completed homework into school every Thursday where they will also complete a homework test. They should also bring in their book bag, signed reading record and reading book to be checked and changed on a Thursday.


In addition, your child may also be asked to complete a Domain Unit home-learning project, a piece of homework linked to the Come and See topic, a chapter from the Skills Unit they are studying, reading comprehension or a worksheet to consolidate their learning in maths.
