Family Learning

In April, we began hosting Maths Family Learning workshops. These workshops were for parents of children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, and were held every Monday between 9am and 12pm.

As part of the workshops, parents were helped to create resources to use with their children to support their learning at home. The children also joined the sessions for part of the time to learn with their parents!


Thank you to all our attendees for your support. The workshops have finished for the Summer, but will return in September. More information will be sent out about our next workshops, focusing on reading and writing, before the end of the year.

Reading for Pleasure Fundraising Day

Today has been our reading for pleasure fundraising day!

All of the children have had the opportunity to come to school in their pyjamas and bring their teddy bears and favourite books for a ‘bedtime stories’ theme.

Each class has been working very hard in order to learn a poem off by heart. We got together in our key stages to perform the poems to other classes.

As part of our reading for pleasure, each person brought in £1 contribution for one of our charities, Stoke Association. Mr Smith from the Stoke Association came into school to do some awareness work with Years 5 and 6, and the School Council gave him all the money we raised.


Please visit our individual class blogs to see more information and photos about our reading for pleasure day.

FUNDA Friends

Year 5 and 6 were asked if they wanted to apply for a FUNDA playtime leader role. This role means that they would be working alongside Coach Matt on the Key Stage 1 Yard. They will help Key Stage 1 children to take part in sports activities and keep safe on the playground.

The children who applied, were asked to attend an interview with Coach Matt and myself today.

They were preparing as they queued up…..


Some children were very nervous……
