"To be the best we can be"

Thank you to all the mini police who were such wonderful role models at the "Observance for the Commonwealth" event in Durham last Wednesday. They were all an absolute credit to the school!! Y6 -PLEASE REMEMBER to do a "little and often" in your home revision sessions. Rest and time with your family are also important. Thank you!! MrsW

How can I help my child ??

It is vital that children experience pleasure through learning and that is where you, as a parent or carer, can really help!! It is vital that you continue the "reading habit" and help children begin to not only decode the text but begin to ask questions about what is happening and why. Children can readily answer simple recall questions (eg what colour was the building, how long did the bus journey take ) but questions requiring them to think, imagine and empathise can be a little more problematic.

Making Inferences..........

Being able to "infer" means you can look beyond the present and draw a conclusion based upon the knowledge you already is vital that children can do this effectively to be outstanding learners.
