We will soon be running workshops for parents and carers interested in learning how phonics are taught within school. We follow the 'Jolly Phonics' programme, which is designed to help students hear every sound in a word in order to help them read and spell it. The dates for the workshops will be put on the website shortly and a letter will be sent home too. In the meantime, this short video is great for hearing how we teach the different sounds in school. Why not watch it at home with your child and practise together!
6th form work for their lunch!
KS5.4 have prepared and cooked their own Christmas lunch.
As part of their COPE course, members of class 5.4 have prepared and cooked their own Christmas lunch: Working out timings for turkey, peeling spuds, cutting carrots, roasting pigs in blankets and making stuffing.
'Is Christmas all about maths!?' says Sarah, who was surprised at the amount of working out the timings and cooking took.
5.4 worked really well as a team, after initially being astonished by the amount of work it would take to make lunch. Soon enough pupils were well underway with preparing the food. The timings are tight, however everything should be ready in time.
Good luck KS5.4!
UPDATE: 5.4 have cooked and served their lunch. It looked fantastic. Good job 5.4!
