Reading for pleasure

We are so pleased with how the children have settled into school, especially those pupils who are new to Denton. We hope that they have been sharing news about their topics and learning with you all at home.

We have so much planned for the year, including our curriculum information online and in-person sessions this term.  We will be placing a particular focus on reading, and how we can support children and parents with reading. A key initiative this year will be to promote reading for pleasure and we have many exciting ideas to support this.

We would like to share our plans with you at an in-person meeting at Yardley Hastings on Tuesday 3rd October at 7pm. During the session, we will be covering how we teach reading in school, future plans for our reading curriculum and how to support your child with reading at home. There will also be an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. We do hope that you will be able to join us.

Summer term plans!

Welcome back to school after the Easter break. We have so many plans for the summer term, including two residential trips, Bikeability training, and our next Global Focus Week, planned for just after the half term break. The Focus Week will be about Zero Hunger, as part of our Global Curriculum.

It was lovely to see some of you at our Coffee and Catch-Up session, and to have a chance for a chat.

For parents and carers of Maple Class children, don’t forget about our phonics information session, taking place on 24th April. Please pop by if you can to join us!
