Happy Easter!

Today in Miss Guy’s class we went for a walk. We found lots of signs of Spring in our environmental area!! We even saw tadpoles in the pond!

Whilst you’re out and about over Easter see how many different signs of Spring you can see! Make sure you tell us after the holidays! 


Wishing you all a lovely holiday!

Bread & butter making in year 2!

Today we made bread!! This was linked to our history learning. The children were able to talk about how difficult it was  years ago to make everyday foods that we like. They talked about the long process of bread making. Mrs Brown and Miss Guy brought in their super duper bread makers and the children were fascinated because it’s so much easier now!!! The smell around KS 1 was amazing!!!

Later in the afternoon, whilst the bread was cooling, we put cream into a plastic bottle. Everyone had a go at shaking the bottle. All of a sudden the cream started to separate and finally we had butter!! It was amazing!!! 

Everyone had a taste and it was loved by us all!

Phonics screening check

Dear Parents and Carers,

In the week beginning the Monday 13th June 2016, all Year 1 pupils in the country will sit the National Phonics Screening Check. The phonics screening check is a short, light-touch assessment to confirm whether individual children have learnt phonic decoding skills to the expected standard for their age. This check will identify the children who have successfully consolidated their phonics skills and any children that require further support in Y2.

The phonics screening check will be constructed of 20 real words and 20 pseudo-words (nonsense words). The pseudo-words provide the purest assessment of phonic decoding because they will be new to all children, and so there will be no unintended bias based on visual memory of words or vocabulary knowledge. The pseudo-words will be presented with a picture prompt (a picture of an imaginary creature). This approach makes it clear to children that they are reading a pseudo-word, which they should not expect to be able to match to their existing vocabulary.

For more information please visit the government website on Phonics Screening.


Here is the 2013 Phonics Screening paper for you to look at and use with your child to practise https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/320637/STA136008e.pdf

There are lots for useful free resources available for you to use with your child.






There are also lots of Apps for Ipads and tablets that are child friendly to use, such as Phonics Genius, Hooked on Phonics, Hairy Phonics 1, 2 and 3 and pocket phonics.

Attached are some other real and pseudo-words (nonsense words) that you can practise at home.

If you have any further questions or requires please speak to myself or Mrs Wright.

Kind regards

Miss Heath

Doddington Hall trip

On Friday Miss Heath’s class and Mrs Browns class went to Doddington hall. The children loved learning about house and homes in Victorian times. They learnt how to grow vegetables and why they are good for you. They went inside the house. There were big picture that were painted. We learnt that in Victorian times they hadn’t invented the camera. There were 4 posted beds and they didn’t have toilets so had to use a bed pan. Victorian families used to like reading and playing with musical instruments. We then looked at different toys Victorian children played with. They had metal roller skates, dolls and wooden stable.
