A hardworking week in school. Children are now into the depths of their topics and knowledge is beginning to ‘stick’ and be developed upon.
On Tuesday, we had a great visit from a phonics specialist, from the English Hub, who observed and supported with phonics teaching and interventions. We watched some great sessions and it was so lovely to be looking at the great progress, which is being made in phonics across Reception and Key stage 1. We heard children read and it is clear that our newly purchased book-banded books really are having an impact. We are proud of our new approach to early reading and phonics, and we are making great way with the ‘love of reading’ too.
Teachers are deep into their report writing and we look forward to sharing these with you at the end of the term.
Next week, the year 1 children have their phonics screening checks (as do the children form year 2, who did not pass in the autumn). Additionally, the year 4 children have their multiplication times table checks. We wish them all the luck and we know that they will do their very best.
We are deep in the depths of planning for September. We are making some good decisions and we look forward to sharing everything with you.
We wish you a very lovely weekend, especially for those dads over Father’s Day.
