Reading Curriculum Morning Friday 27th April 2018
The reading open session was held to give parents an insight into the teaching of reading. During the morning, parents had the opportunity to see activities in classrooms and to take part in a carousel of reading workshops based on decoding, fluency and comprehension. The workshops were designed to support knowledge and ideas to help reading at home. The session ended with an assembly for children and parents to promote the use of Reading Eggs.
English Curriculum Morning Tuesday 23rd January 2018
The session was held in the classrooms where teachers gave an overview of phonics and SPaG . The session is to provide parents/carers with a clear insight into our approach to the teaching and learning of English. An opportunity was also given for parents to ask questions and share further ideas on how parents can support their child at home.
Curriculum Evening Tuesday 3 October 2017
We are holding a Curriculum Evening for all parents/carers. This will be an opportunity for us to share what the curriculum expectations are for each year group, how we approach learning at Westroyd and share ideas of how children can be supported at home.
Please look under the class pages section of the website, for detailed information on your child's year group.
Maths Session Feedback
Thank you to all of you that attended the session! We very much value your feedback and take on board your comments for future sessions.
It was good because;
"Thank you for the market stall style... It was really accessable and helpful"
"Really well organised! The workshops were thought out and gave me lots of ideas of things to do at home with my reception child. Thank you!"
"Really enjoyed visiting the classroom and seeing how they were taught in School. The workshops were brilliant...."
"Really helpful afternoon and lovely to see how the children are learning new things."
"Brilliantly presented by teachers. Lots of useful information. I was pleased that I could take notes otherwise I would of forgotten a lot."
Even Better If;
"More time in the classroom please."
"....Classroom activities would have been more helpful if we could see what the children were told what to do, rather than see them do it..."
"It would be helpful to know what number bond your child is working on."
"..... Take away packs to use at home like we did a few years a go...."
The Importance of Play
We held an Early Year's Curriculum evening and talked about our classrooms and how we have been working hard on creating an effective learning environment. A short presentation was shown about the importance of play and how play is our approach to learning in the Early Year's. The presentation is uploaded for you to look at. In reception and nursery there is a balance between adult - directed activities and things they do independently (child-initiated).
We have had lots of positive feedback from our curriculum sessions. We would love for you to post your feedback on the parents blog.
