Parents

 

Stay and Play sessions demonstrate to parent how numeracy and maths is taught in in class.

We encourage parental involvement in our after school and lunchtime clubs.

Parents joined their children for a Science Workshops looking at experiments and investigations that can be turned into homework tasks.

Our 'Meet the teacher' events provide an opportunity to meet your child's new teacher and discuss classroom routine, homework and pupil expectations at their age and stage.

Tiered Vocabulary/Focus Words

Each term, our nursery rooms and primary classes will send home a list of new and familiar vocabulary that children may encounter in their topics.  These lists have been recorded as audio files to assist families in supporting their child's learning.

Vocabulary has been organised into three tiers. However there is nothing to stop pupils learning vocabulary from any of the three tiers.

Tier 1 (P1-3)

Tier 2 (P3-5)

Tier 3 (P5-7)

 

E-safety concerns

Being online is an integral part of children and young people’s lives. Social media, online games, websites and apps can be accessed through mobile phones, computers, laptops and tablets – all of which form a part of children and young people’s online world.

The internet and online technology provides new opportunities for young people’s learning and growth, but it can also expose them to new types of risks.
