Mrs Bentley and Mrs Butler have spent a busy morning looking at how we can improve our children's use of vocabulary, connectives, sentence openers and punctuation. Soon we will be starting our daily 5 a week literacy VCOP sessions to improve writing throughout the school.
Mrs Chaytor and Miss Donoghue also had a really busy morning looking at resources and ensuring that we have a increasing and highly consistent approach to the teaching of phonics in KS1. We are looking to significantly raise the proportion of children meeting the expected standard in the Year 1 phonics test in July. Your child should soon be coming home and talking about their work with their new phonic friends.
