Fancy doing a little extra at home?

If you are looking for a little extra to do at home with your child, please practice spotting these digraphs and trigraphs on their own and in words. See if your child can read and spell some words containing these sounds.

Your child will be awarded with 10 house points each time they read or write 5 words.

With many thanks for your support in your child’s learning.

Parents meeting on phonics and reading

Thank you to all the parents and grandparents that attended the phonics and reading meeting  this morning for F2 and KS1.  It was a great turnout and hopefully gave parents the information they need to help them support their child with reading at home.  The presentation and all handouts can be found on the school website.

We are very excited to announce the launch of our new reading challenge next week.  Look out for the letter your child will be bringing home explaining more about it.  See if you can spot the reading challenge displays as they appear in classrooms over the next week.  We look forward to seeing who can achieve the bronze award first!

Collaborative Maths work in Class 5

Class 5 have been doing some wonderful collaboration in our maths sessions this week. We were focusing on 2D and 3D shapes and we were working together to name and identify these shapes. We even had a shape hunt to see whether we could spot some real life examples of different shapes in our classroom.

The children managed to spot lots of different examples and we had lots of fun trying to find them. Well done Class 5, Awesome maths!!
