Writer of the Week!
Every Monday, each teacher celebrates the writing of a child in their class who has made great strides and persevered to become more accomplished writers. These are celebrated in our weekly celebration assembly and, as part of that assembly, our Literacy coordinator selects the piece of writing that has impressed them the most.
Congratulations for a superb effort to this weeks winner!
We have added a new page for parents about how Park Primary support and encourage all pupils to read from the moment we start to work with them. By the time they leave Park Primary they are equipped not only to further their studies at high School but to have established a real love of reading in them.
Park Primary use a Reading Spine that lists all the books the children at different ages will read this school year. Not only that but we also suggest books that Parents could encourage pre-school children to read so that they have a head start when they join us in September each year.
There are suggestions for parent help and a useful download of this years Reading Spine for you to read through.
Disturbing YouTube videos: factsheet for parents
You may have seen news reports about inappropriate children’s videos on YouTube.
These are videos that, at first, appear to be for children, as they include cartoon characters such as Peppa Pig, or characters from Disney films such as Frozen. However, later on the videos become violent or disturbing. One, for example, shows Peppa Pig being tortured at the dentist.
The videos can appear in YouTube search results when children look for genuine children’s videos.
YouTube says that such videos will be age-restricted if they are reported by users, so they cannot be viewed by anyone under 18.
This fact sheet explains how you can protect your child when they are using YouTube apps or the website.
At Park Primary School we take great pride in our learning environments and have high standards across school. Each half term Mrs Berry and Mrs Greenwood monitor learning environments and take photos of good practise to motivate others. We hope you enjoy looking at some of the learning that is taking place in our school.
Attendance on the up!
Attendance has improved year on year over the last 3 years. This is due to incentives for pupils, parental engagement and joint agency working.
Keep up the good work!
