What we are learning !

In September 2021 transferred over to Read, Write, Inc. Phonics.

Here are some ways to support your child reading at home. 

Optional Weekend Challenges (Reception and Year 1) - I wonder...

Each week/fortnight we will give your child an 'I wonder...' question to explore both at home and in school. This will spark discussions, problem solving and inquiries into the world around us and why things happen/occur. We hope you can also investigate this at home too and send in your own discussions/findings through Evidence Me. 

Summer 1...

I wonder... How can I stay safe on roads and near railways?

I wonder.. Can you create your own aircraft? How will you make it fly?

I wonder... Who was Neil Armstrong? Why is he so significant?

Spring 2...

I wonder... What are dinosaurs? Where did they come from? What happened to them? Are they still around today?

I wonder... What is decomposition?

I wonder... Does ‘fair’ always mean getting the same or does it mean your individual needs are met?

I wonder... What makes a good friend?

I wonder... What signs of spring can you see around your local area?

I wonder... Why is Easter celebrated? How do you celebrate Easter?
