Foundation Stage Reading Workshop!
Thank you to everyone who came to our EYFS reading workshops on 17th and 20th March 2017. We demonstrated different strategies for teaching your child to read and learn their sight vocabulary, showed you a range of websites you can use with your child to enhance their phonic skills as well as showing you how to get the most out of reading with your child.
The resources shared during the workshop, including the presentation itself, can be found by clicking the links below.
Kids of Today - Transition
Top Tips to help your kids of today cope well tomorrow
A big Thank You to all the year 5 and year 6 parents who attended the transition meeting - 10th Nov 2016. I was pleased that so many of you found the information useful and would like additional meetings to help support your children.
The winners of the free raffle were:
1st Prize £20 Waitrose voucher - Mr Bryan
2nd Prize Bottle of Prosecco - Mrs Harrison
3rd Prize Box of chocolates - Mrs Preston
Congratulations to all of them.
Based on feedback we are looking at what other meetings we can put in place later in the year.
You will find a copy of the presentation on the school website along with one about how what you eat affects various aspects of behaviour and learning difficulties.
I have called it ‘What should we be eating?’.

E-Safety encompassess not only Internet technologies but also electronic communications via mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. It highlights the need to educate children and young people about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.
E-safety concerns safeguarding children and young people in the digital world.
E-safety emphasises learning to understand and use new technologies in a positive way.
E-safety is less about restriction and more about education about the risks as well as the benefits so we can feel confident online.
E-safety is concerned with supporting children and young people to develop safer online behaviours both in and out of school.
This section contains a range of resources linked to e-safety, some of which we shared at our parent workshop last year.
Maths At Blaby Stokes
The content of the maths curriculum and the methods that we use in school have changed recently with a greater emphasis on reasoning, problem solving and efficient calculating.
In this section of the website you will find information about the curriculum for each year group, how we teach maths and the methods that children will use.
This information was also shared with parents during our maths workshops on Nov 12th 2015.
Grammar At Blaby Stokes
Children in Year 2 and Year 6 will take their SATs (Standard Assessment Tests) in May 2016. There has been some changes in the style of the Literacy SATs especially for Year 2 with a greater emphasis on Grammar and spelling in context. In this section of website there are examples of the Year 2 and Year 6 tests for you to look at so you know what is expected of the children. Also included is a Grammatical Terms list which again you might find useful.
