Industrial Museum

Before the holidays year 1 went on their school trip to the Industrial Museum in Bradford. We went to learn more about the transport in Bradford and how it has changed over time.
We had a fantastic time and we were able to draw maps, look at different modes of transport and also draw pictures.

Train Visitor

Before the holidays we had a fantastic visit from CRL railway team. Miss Bennett came to our class to teach us how to stay safe on and around trains and train tracks.
We had a fantastic afternoon and really enjoyed dressing up in lots of costumes.

Blending for Reading!

Every week Reception Class learn a new set of phonemes (sounds) to help them read and write new words. This video shows how we teach the children to read new words using the sounds of the week.

  1. touch the letter with your finger
  2. say the sound the letter makes
  3. blend the sounds together to read the word

Please continue to help your child practise the words that are being sent home each week. Thank you for your continued support!
