  • Reading Information Evening for Parents

    Published 06/12/16


    On Tuesday 1st November, we held a reading information evening for parents. The purpose of the evening was to share with parents some different strategies we use at school to support children in developing their reading proficiency and for parents to be able to use those strategies at home. 

    Mrs Heath talked about the different layers of understanding we can get from a text, with a particular focus on inferential comprehension, using the beautifully written and illustrated book, ‘The Whale’s Song’. 

    Ms Callaghan explained to parents the process of reciprocal reading. Parents participated in a reading session using an excerpt from the wonderfully descriptive text, ‘The Arabian Nights’, where they worked on predicting, clarifying, questioning and summarising skills. 

    Miss Moore led our final workshop, showing parents how to do paired reading at home with their child. She also introduced parents to our school library and the wonderful range of interesting, exciting and informative books we have available for borrowing. 

    Thank you to all the parents who attended the session and joined in with the activities so readily – the teachers really appreciated your participation. Thank you also for the really positive feedback we received – It was great to know that you found the sessions both enjoyable and informative.

  • Year 6 PGL Trip

    Published 25/10/16

    We had a wonderful week at Boreaton Park. The sun shone on us while we canoed, abseiled and fenced. Quad biking was a real highlight and the raft building was great fun, especially when the children fell in at the end. The high ropes was a challenge for some and we had a lovely time celebrating three birthdays with lots of candles and cakes.
