As you can see from this newsletter, we’ve had a busy half term and we have managed to combine a lot of hard work with a bit of fun!
It was great to see so many pupils and staff dress up for World Book Day on Thursday 1st March.
We had a good attendance at the Year 1 Phonics Workshop. Thank you for your support – it is important to the children!
We continue to work hard on improving our teaching of reading. As I mentioned in our last newsletter we are introducing ‘whole class teaching’ of reading. This will start straight after Easter in all year groups.
The books we will be using are as follows:-
Year 1 – Beegu – Alexis Deacon
Year 2 – Flat Stanley – Jeff Brown
Year 3 – Fantastic Mr Fox – Roald Dahl
Year 4 – How to Train Your Dragon – Cressida Cowell
Year 5 – Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief – Rick Riordan
Year 6 – The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas – John Boyne
We know that the children will be very excited about the new way of being taught reading.
I do hope that you and your family have an enjoyable and restful Easter break.
