E-Safety and Phonics

Thank you to any parents who attended the Phonics session on Monday and the E-Safety meeting today.

Mrs Cross and I wanted to make you aware of You Tube kids. A lot of children shared that they go on YouTube and so we wanted to make you aware of this. It takes away any videos that are not appropriate (the children will still need to be supervised). 
It is an app that you download and then your child will use that to watch any videos- such as watching Kinder Eggs be opened (if that is what they like!)

Phonics Screening.

Hi everyone,

We hope you have had a lovely weekend!

Just a reminder that tomorrow there is a Phonics Screening workshop for ALL parents at 2:30pm. It is the expectation that all parents attend this session. If you are unable to attend, please inform the office or ourselves and we will make other arrangements so you can hear the message and ask any questions.

This is an important focus in Year 1- Learning to read and blend accurately and fluently. In tomorrow's session we will explain what the screening check is and how you can help your child- not only be aware of the check but to read and enjoy reading.

Even if your older child/ren has been through this, we would appreciate your attendance as there are new messages to accompany what you may already know about the check.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow,

Mrs Young and Mrs Cross. 😃
