It was lovely to see our parents and carers turn out for our first information / open morning of the new school session.
Tuesday morning, 5th September, was an opportunity for our Primary 1 parents and carers to visit the school and find out about phonics and numbers. What I really mean is, that they could find out how early reading is taught. As we use Jolly Phonics in Primary 1, Miss Miller and Mrs Stephenson gave examples of how the phonics would be taught and even gave information about the Jolly Phonics App which is free to download and use at home.There was information about early writing, about pencil grips and letter and number formation. Tips were given about how to encourage and support the children at home.
Following the information being shared, in the school hall, our parents and carers were able to spend some time in the classroom seeing the children at work. There was a lovely atmosphere and it was encouraging to see the children delight in sharing their learning opportunities with parents and carers.
