Book Fairs

The school organises a book fairs throughout the year.  Details will appear on the website with any dates. 

 

Computers

Before they are allowed to use the computers we ask all parents and children to sign a contract. School is connected to the Internet and children are allowed to use the computers and ‘surf’.  We have established a network system and provided all children with their own E-mail address.

 

French

French is taught to all of the Key Stage 2 classes as part of the school’s curriculum.

 

Library

Children are able to choose and return books themselves using the exciting bar code scanner.  The library is timetabled for each class to use throughout the week.  The children are really enjoying reading the new selection of books and are allowed to take them home.  Please encourage your child to read as often as possible at home.


 

Paired Reading

The Year 6 children are paired with younger children and listen to them read during lunch times. 

The Year 6 children enjoy this responsibility and the younger children enjoy the chance to demonstrate their reading skills to someone different.  

 

PTA

Our PTA is made up of parents who meet once a month with the aims of raising money for school funds, involving parents in school life and promoting a ‘community spirit’ based around school activities.

We try to organise fun events for your children, such as KS1 and KS2 discos and at the same time raise funds to purchase equipment or provide facilities that otherwise could not be funded by the school.

We now meet in school, on the first Tuesday of each month during school time at 6.30pm in the staff room.   

 

Residential Study

Children in Year 6 are taken on a residential trip for three days each year.

 

Special Friends

Year 6 are allocated a child in reception. Each Friday afternoon the Year 6 children read and play with their  special friends as well as other structured activities.  The Year 6 children build up a relationship with their special friends throughout the year and look after them around school and during playtimes.
