Love, learn and live in Christ!

Dear Parents/Carers. Thank you for your fantastic support over the last week! It is so appreciated. If you are able to keep your children at home - even if you are a key worker - then you must. We are operating with a skeleton staff at school and the more children who can stay at home then the fewer staff I need in school enabling staff to distance themselves. Should staffing levels drop then I will have to rethink the current emergency provision. Parents/carers who can keep their children at home, check your child's class webpage EVERY DAY. The teachers are uploading work for them. Stay safe. Mrs Hodges

Phonics

We use the Jolly Phonics scheme which is a fun and child centred approach to teaching literacy through synthetic phonics. With actions for each of the 42 letter sounds, the multi-sensory method is very motivating for children and teachers, who can see their students achieve. The letter sounds are split into seven groups. 

We have a meeting shortly after your child starts with us in Reception to take you through the phonics and other early skills we teach so don't worry - but if you have any questions or queries please get in touch!

Here are some videos which might help you to support your child at home.
