A visiting theatre company will be coming in to perform a Pirate show to Year 1/2. Children are welcome to dress up like a Pirate for the day.
Here are a few photos from our recent Year 1/2 trip to the Tesco supermarket in Bulwell. Children had a lovely time and thoroughly enjoyed all the different activities which included baking bread, tasting different foods and going behind the scenes in the shop.
In May 2016, children in Year 2 will be taking the first set of a new style of National Curriculum test to record their attainment at the end of primary school in maths and spelling, punctuation and grammar. Normally a reading test would also be administered in May alongside with the other tests. However the school will be carrying out the reading test early at the request of the government so that our scores, along with other selected schools' scores, can be used to produce the score boundaries. These will be used to decide whether children are working at the expected standard.
With the Year 1 Phonics Screening test fast approaching in June, this video may help with consolidating what they have learnt at school at home. This video shows how to pronounce each phoneme correctly up to Phase 3. Children will be taught blends and alternate graphemes in Phase 4 and 5.
