This week we had a phonics workshop to give parents the opportunity to learn about what the children have been learning in their phonics lessons. Then parents were able to work with their children on a variety of phonic activities that develop reading and writing skills.
This week we have had our Play, Stay and Chat sessions for parents to come along and do an activity with their child and talk to Ms Andrews about how the children have progressed in their learning.
On Wednesday some of the Reception children’s parents attended a phonics workshop where they learnt about what phonics is and how it is taught in Reception. Then they worked with their children making some resources to play phonics games with their children at home.
There was lots of positive feedback and all the children enjoyed working with their parents making the games to play at home.
This week the Owl Nursery parents were invited into school to discuss their children’s progress and to play with their child. Lots of parents attended and the children really enjoyed playing and exploring with their parents. I would like to say a big thank you to all those parents that attended these sessions. The continued interest that you show in your child’s learning, progress and attainment has such a positive and profound effect on your child’s journey through school. Thank you.
On Tuesday parents were invited into the Swans classroom to participate in phonics activities with their children. We started the session with a power point about phase 3 and phase 4 phonics and explaining diagraphs and trigraphs to parents. Parents were shown how we plan and teach phonics and how this helps children with their reading and writing development. After the power point parents were able to participate in various phonic activities with their children. The children really enjoyed having the opportunity to show their parents what they do at school. Lots of positive feedback was received.
Friday 10th November we had a parent’s phonics workshop. Parents were invited into the Reception classroom to find out all about phonics taught in Reception and how this relates to their children’s reading and writing.
Then parents were invited to work with their child and make 6 phonic games using the resources provided. These resource packs went home to enable parents to continue playing these games with their children at home.
This week we have had our Play, Stay and Chat sessions. Parents had the opportunity to come in to Reception and talk to Ms Andrews about their child. Then they were able to participate in activities with their children including making a diva lamp out of clay. The sessions were well attended.
The Swans and Chicks had a lovely Easter workshop on Wednesday morning with lots of Mums, Dads, Aunts, Uncles and Grandparents. The children worked very hard and very creatively making their Easter Bonnets. The children then paraded their bonnets down the catwalk and everybody had fun hunting for eggs on the school field. A big thank you to everyone who attended our Easter workshop. It was lovely to see so many of you working with your children. The children had a fantastic time making their bonnets with your help.
This week Reception parents have been into school for our stay, play and chat sessions. The children have been very excited about Mummies and Daddies coming into school and the children have loved working with their parents.
Everybody really enjoyed completing the MashCam activity on the laptops. It was fun inserting our photos into the astronaut’s space suits and then writing about our mission to Space.
A big thank you to everybody who supported our stay, play and chat sessions.
The Swans have had lots of fun today in our phonic workshop. The children really enjoyed playing games with their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles.

It was a very busy and productive morning. Everybody enjoyed working and learning together. A big thank you to everybody who attended the workshop.
