Year 1 Daily Supported Reading:                                          

Year One would like to thank all the parents and carers that attended their child's daily supported reading session.  The children were thrilled to have their grown up watching and supporting them! We hope that adults gained an insight into how we run our reading sessions and how much we value reading.

Reception:  

During the week beginning the 25th November we will be holding Reception Phonic Workshops.  This is an opportunity for parents to come and observe a phonic session being taught and then have a short discussion with your child's class teacher after.  This will give you some ideas on how you can support your child at home.  

The dates for your child's class are as follows:

Dolphin Class - 9am Monday 25th November 2019

Panda Class - 9am Tuesday 26th November 2019

Penguin Class - 9am Wednesday 27th November 2019

We look forward to seeing you there!

Nursery:                                                                   

Thank you to the parents who attended the Fine Motor Skills workshop in Nursery - we hope it was a valuable experience to share with your child. Fine motor skills are an important stepping stone on your child’s developmental journey. Good fine motor skills link to dressing, self-care, using a computer and those all-important writing skills. Children need to have strength and dexterity in the muscles in the hands in order to hold a pen correctly and begin writing activities. In nursery and at home we can help to develop these skills through an array of different activities.                                                                                                                                                                       Interlocking construction toys                                                                                                                                                    Duplo - large sized Lego which is best for younger children and strengthens the pincer grip along with other muscles in the hand.                                                                                                                                                                        

Mobilo - needs strength in the hands and fingers to push pieces together.                                                                

Train track - develops grip muscles and once constructed continues to build muscles when playing with the trains.  

 

Anti-Bullying/Friendship Week:                                                

Thank you to all the parents and carers who attended the anti-bullying workshop last Friday. The children have been learning about being kind to each other. This Morning are launching #Bekind with free Smiggle key rings. If you would like one of these please go to https://www.itv.com/thismorning/be-kind to find out which shops are providing them in our area.

Parking Around School                                                         

We have had reports from our school neighbours and parents that there have been incidences of parking across drives and in resident disabled spaces.  Parents have also been observed obstructing safe crossings with their cars and have been unhelpful when asked to move. Please consider leaving home earlier and either walk or park & walk at the beginning and end of the school day. We also have a breakfast club that starts at 8.00 for £2.00 a day, which can be used to avoid congested mornings. We ask that you please be respectful to each other and be kind, Remember we are role models for our children.
