Phonic workshops

In the spring term we will be inviting parents to join us for a range of phonic workshops and lesson demonstrations in preparation for the year 1 phonic screening testing in June.

Subject showcase

During the year, you will be invited in to your child’s class for them to showcase a particular subject. This could be history and the children might create their own museum or as part of their art studies a chance to see their paintings in a gallery.
