Hearing Your Child Read
Thank you to those parents who were able to attend our session aimed to give you ideas on how to help your child to read at home. For those unable to attend, we have attached the powerpoint presentation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see either Mrs Reekie, Mrs Holt, Mrs Slater or Mrs Crook
The children had a great day today - with the whole school writing using the same stimulus. Every child from reception up to year 6 watched the John Lewis advert from 2012 'The Longest Journey' where the snowman leaves his snow wife to travel across field, river and into the city to buy a present that would keep his wife warm - a red scarf, hat and gloves. A touching love story that inspired the children to write some fantastic stories. Some children decided to re-write the snow man story using their own words while others decided to use the idea but make it their own. The children were extremely proud of their work and some classes read their stories to other classes. There was certainly a buzz about the school!
