Family Learning

Welcome to Family Learning!


Family Learning sessions take place on Wednesday mornings at 9am. We welcome all parents and carers to join us for a morning of fun. Children will bring home letters with information about the next session. Please return reply slips to the school office or your child's class teacher if you wish to attend.

Share sessions

Share sessions began on Wednesday 5th October and continued every Wednesday for 6 weeks. Sessions included Maths and English activities, making games and developing reading, writing and number skills.

Many thanks to the parents and children who join us for  'Shared Learning'. The course was well attended each session for 6 weeks. Children enjoyed working with parents and carers and worked very hard on a range of activities such as word lotto, making puppets and number games. Lots of advice and tips were given about how to help your child with reading and writing at home. Well done to all who attended. The children celebrated their work and were awarded a certificate from Mrs Attwood.


Letters and Sounds

Parents and children from Nursery and Reception classes joined us on Wednesday 23rd November for a Letters and Sounds Workshop. We hope you enjoyed using the letter fans and reading resources at home and found the session useful.

Christmas Crafts

On Wednesday 30th November Nursery and Reception parents/carers enjoyed a Christmas Arts and Craft session. The excitement for Christmas has begun as children enjoyed a range of Christmas activities. There was plenty of glitter and sparkle as they made tree decorations, calendars and Christmas cards. It was lovely to see so many smiling faces after a very special, enjoyable morning!
