The Year 1 Phonics Parental workshop on Wednesday 29th January 2020 gave parents an insight into how Phonics is taught in Year 1 and information on how the Phonics screening tests will be administered in the summer term.
“Very interesting – sounds very complex but can see threads running through all school years. Makes much more sense now!”
“Excellent, thank you. Very informative, clear and precise and pleasantly delivered.”
“Really useful to hear about the screening and also the terminology.”
“Very informative – would welcome more of the same.”
The Year 3/4 Maths Strategies workshop on Wednesday 29th January gave information about how maths is taught in these year groups and to talk about the Times tables screening taking place in the summer for the Year 4 children.
“Very useful, thank you! This will help support when we do homework together. The games and additional learning strategies are also very useful”
“Many thanks, it has been very helpful. Thank you for the extra materials, I will try the times table songs”.
“Useful for us as parents to understand the methods that are being used at school”.
“It is useful to know how and why the different strategies are used and how they build up from one to the next”.
Questionnaire responses 2020
Thank you to all the parents who completed and returned the questionnaire given out at Parents
Evening. We had 32 responses – with all responses saying they would recommend the school. There
was only 1 other comment under the wider opportunities question – a parent felt there was plenty of
focus on physical opportunities and slightly less in the arts - this is something we will address in the coming months.
