Whole school information and important updates are published under 'Latest News'. This can be accessed under the 'Parents' tab and the most recent updates will be displayed on our homepage and Twitter feed. Please follow @stjoescardiff.
Each class page provides an overview of the skills the children will learn during the year and our expectations. In Key Stage 2, half-termly homework projects will also be displayed at the bottom of each class page and updated throughout the year. Children are to use Bug Club and Mathletics at home to support their learning on a weekly basis. If you are unable to access Bug Club at home, please ask your child's class teacher for a reading book and reading record.
The children will also be tested on their spellings throughout the year. Spellings and test dates for KS2 are shown at the bottom of each class page. The children are expected to learn their spellings in preparation for each test.
Photos are displayed for each class in the gallery. These can be found under the 'Gallery' tab. Under each set of photos will be a written description of what the children have been doing in class during the week. This replaces the weekly newsletter and will make it easier for parents to follow their child's learning journey.

Pupils in our school are growing to be faith-filled in their beliefs and hopeful for the future. We have faith in those who are closest to us - our family and friends. We need to have faith in ourselves. We should also have faith in the communities to which we belong -our parish and school. Finally, God invites us to have faith in him and his son, Jesus Christ. Faith cannot be taken for granted: it must be built upon day by day.
Hope grows out of faith and love. Christianity teaches that God is a God of hope. We must not be frightened to take on new challenges. We must use our strengths and ask for help from those around us, to overcome these challenges.
Prayer for Lent
Almighty God, whose blessed Son was led by the Spirit to be tempted by Satan: Come quickly to help us who are assaulted by many temptations; and, as you know the weaknesses of each of us, let each one find you mighty to save; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
