Time is flying by, it only seems like five minutes since I was welcoming the children to 4C and here we are already into our second month. All the children are now settled into their new class routines and are fully aware of the high learning and behaviour expectations required of them.
The vast majority of the children have been enjoying the changes and challenges moving into year four has bought them.
A continuing focus for this year is developing the children's comprehension skills across all genres (fiction, non-fiction, play scripts, explanation, poetry and instruction texts). Each week in group guided reading sessions I spend time with every child questioning them on and discussing what we have read as a group.
We have participating in our first theme week of this academic year this month. The focus of this week is celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the opening of the new Whitings Hill Primary School building. Barnet Hill Primary School (one form entry) and Whitings Hill Primary School (one form entry) amalgamated to create a new two form entry primary school and everyone moved into our current building in September 2009.
Thank you for your support, it has helped get this school year off to a great start.
