NEW ASSESSMENT ARRANGEMENTS
Please see below for the presentation given explaining the new assessment arrangements.
E-safety (keeping children safe online) is a key part of our Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies topic during the autumn term. Thank you to Anna Harding (deputy head) for running e-safety workshops for parents.
As adults, we are all aware of the benefits of internet access for children. However it is also essential that we all know the possible risks and the actions we have to take to keep our children safe online.

We are committed to helping your child to become a successful and confident reader. High quality phonics teaching gives children a solid base on which to build as they progress through school. They start by learning the 44 phonemes (sounds). Click here for a video of the 44 sounds.
HELPING YOUR CHILD WITH MATHS
You may feel that maths is taught very differently from when you were at school! In class much time is spent on teaching mental calculation strategies. Up to the age of about 8 or 9 (Year 4), informal written recording should take place regularly as it is an important part of learning and understanding. Formal written methods, which you will be more familiar with, should follow only when your child is able to use a wide range of mental calculation strategies.
SUPPORTING YOUR CHILD'S LEARNING
These leaflets are designed for every year group and provide guidance on how you can support your child's learning in reading, writing and mathematics. They explain the level that we would expect your child to be working at towards the end of the academic year.
