Nursery Christmas Stay & Play Session – Friday 8th December
On Friday 8th December, Nursery held it’s Christmas Stay & Play session where parents were invited into the nursery to work and play with their children. We had lots of fun making sparkly Christmas tree decorations, glittery cards and we even got to make a sticky sweet snowman biscuit.
We are the duckling pirates! We have been designing and making our own pirate hats. You can see them being made and us wearing them!
Using the Tool Workbench
We have been learning how to use the workbench and tools safely.
Good teaching is allowing pupils to make up for previous gaps in their learning. Pupils have good attitudes to learning because teachers plan activities which maintain pupils interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.
The academy provides well for pupils of all abilities. The most able pupils are given work which is at the right level and are encouraged to do as well as they can and so they make good progress.
Pupils enjoy reading and use the well-stocked library to choose a different book each week. Daily reading sessions, together with well-taught phonics (the sounds that letters make) help to secure pupils good achievement in reading.
