Key Stage 1-Phonics, Reading and Handwriting

Parent Information Open Evening

 

Thursday 6th October 3.15pm-4.15pm

 

We are holding a Phonics, Reading and Handwriting Information Evening on Thursday 6th October 3.15pm-4.15pm. 

The evening will provide:-

  • simple advice on how to help your child with phonics at home. For Year 1 parents there will be information about the format of the phonics screening test which takes place for Year 1 children in June and how you can help prepare your child for this.  There will be a short introduction and then parents can examine resources and take away information about the different phases in phonics and how you can support your child. 
  • our current school practice and approaches to teaching reading, including the development of comprehension skills
  • an overview of our handwriting scheme
  • end of year expectations for Year One and Year Two in English

 

There will also be an opportunity to speak to staff members from Key Stage 1 and ask any questions.  The meeting will be held in the hall and is an informal opportunity to learn more about how your child develops their learning of phonics, reading and handwriting.  This event is for parents/carers of children in Year 1 and Year 2. Children are welcome to join as they are able to show how the games and resources are used in the classroom.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Many thanks,

Broadbent Fold

Broadbent Fold Primary and Nursery School is an exciting, stimulating and inclusive place to work and learn. The children are central to every decision and opportunity we offer and they play a major role in designing our curriculum. Working in partnership with parents and other outside agencies to ensure the best possible support and outcomes for children is Broadbent Fold’s number one priority. The Broadbent Fold curriculum is a strength of the school and inspires pupils to learn. The wide range of subjects help pupils acquire knowledge, understanding and skills in all aspects of their education.

We are a happy and active school who place a very high value on high standards and excellent behaviour. We want our children to be happy and enjoy their learning in an environment that caters for all and respects others. We place a great deal of value on the children enjoying education, so, trips, visitors, exciting lessons and activities will be common place. I know the children will thoroughly enjoy the journey! I hope that as a parent at Broadbent Fold you find the experience a fulfilling one and you feel involved in the process of your child’s education. There is nothing more important than our children.

We work together to ensure children get the best and leave Broadbent Fold as well rounded successful citizens of the future. I look forward to working with you in the future!
