Do you want to help your children to use phonics in their reading? Are you unsure of the correct way to pronounce some of the sounds? Then these short films will really help.
Following feedback from parents and carers, we are planning to improve the format of our end-of-year reports about the children. We would really appreciate your input. Would you be interested in taking part in a small working party in the new year to discuss ideas?
Please leave your name; your child’s name and class; and your contact details with Reception .
I look forward to hearing from you.
Ms Kate Chambers
On Thursday a great group of Reception parents attended our Reading Workshop. They listened to some advice on ways to help develop their children’s reading skills; collected a free book; met other parents over a cup of tea and, above all, enjoyed the opportunity to go into class and read with their children .
The teaching of Maths has changed a lot over the years and we are aware that your child will be learning in very different ways to how you were taught at school!
Your child will be coming home with a ‘Parents Guide to Maths’ for their year group, outlining the expectations for the year, what they will be taught and how you can support their understanding at home.
The leaflet covers all the areas of Maths, with examples and diagrams to help you. You can download the leaflets for all the year groups below.
Did you know that we all have an invisible bucket? Its purpose is to hold your good thoughts and feelings about yourself. You feel happy and good when your bucket is full, and you feel sad and lonely when your bucket is empty. This week in Purple Class we have thinking of ways we can fill our own bucket and other peoples buckets too.
To all our families and children we extend a warm welcome. We hope you all enjoyed your summer break and settled well into the school routine. We are so proud of the children and they have settled exceptionally well so far and have enjoyed their first week in school.
