Thank you to all who joined us tonight for our first curriculum presentation/workshop, focussing on the teaching of literacy at Wrenbury.

The presentation/workshop was very well received by all those who attended, with all agreeing that the event had met its aims of ensuring that those attending:

  • had a better understanding of how reading is taught in school
  • had a better understanding of how writing is taught in school
  • know how to support their child at home more
  • understand the expectations of the English curriculum

    All attendees felt that the timing and length was good.

    Below are a flavour of responses to 'The best part of the presentation':

  • 'Presentation was all very good. Visual and informative.'
  • 'Understanding how child is taught'
  • 'Very informative — Thank you'
  • 'Having a mixture of presentation and practical'
  • 'Understanding expectations of the curriculum — specific requirements'
  • 'Glossary'
  • 'The practical inferential reading about Serafina and how your understanding can change'
  • 'Lively and interesting'

    Thank you to Mrs Francis, Mrs McGhie and Miss Pitchford for preparing and leading tonight's successful event.

    DON'T MISS OUT — join us for our Maths Curriculum presentation/workshop on Thursday 9th March at 5.30pm.

    We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...

    We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
