Christingle Christmas 2017 Service

On Thursday 14th December our Christingle service was due to be held at church but due to icy weather conditions we had to have a quick change of venue! Luckily all the children, teachers and parents adapted and the service went ahead in the school hall. Well done to all the children performing and/or singing in the nativity/christingle Christmas service. 

 

Thank you to all parents who helped to costume the children.

Learning Journey

Click the Tapestry logo above to go to the Tapestry login screen to view your child's learning journey. You will need your e-mail address and password provided by your child's class teacher.

During the school day we will take photos and videos of your child's learning through play. Usually independently, spontaneously and self initiated. We will make comments on the play and learning that it taking place, and then make judgements on your child's development against the Early Years Foundation Stage profile.

 

You can 'like' and comment on our observations of your child at school. You can also upload your own observations of your child's play and learning at home. Below you can download helpsheets for:

Phonics Teaching

The video below shows the correct articulation of the phonemes which we use to teach reading.

Here is a link to the Oxford Owls website. This contains useful e-books which you can read with your child at home.

 

Reading Scheme: 

We begin with cvc decodeable resources to read then when your child is ready will bring a book from the following schemes:

Our main reading scheme is 'Oxford Reading Tree' supplemented by decodable books initially such as 'Floppy's Phonics', 'Project X Origins', 'Jelly and Bean'. We have some decode and develop books which help to bridge the gap between 'phonics' books and richer reading.
