This week year two took to our barge Toucanna to take part in the nationwide garden bird survey. The RSPB ask schools and individuals to take part in the survey each year to track how our British birds are fairing each year.
We discovered that Blackbirds were the most common birds seen in year two , closely followed by the Jackdaw. A big thankyou to Mr Brazier for helping us to get on and off the barge safely for our first barge lesson of the new year.

The dreaded S word!
This year the government have agreed to postpone the Spelling Punctuation and Grammar element of the Statutory Assessment Tests. The reading , writing, arithmetic and reasoning papers are still in place and will be carried out in the Summer term.
As part of the reading assessment , for children to reach the expected standard required , they are asked to be able to read over 90 words in a minute. While for some of our more confident readers this will not pose a problem , for others this is quite a challenge. Please read as often as you can to your child , share familiar stories together and allow your child to read to you. Choose books they enjoy and talk about the language used in the books that the child may not come across in their day to day lives. Most importantly repeating stories is a great way of learning language patterns and sentence construction so don't worry if your child chooses the same books over and over again. Let them enjoy the familiar story , the silly voices and the happy endings .
If you would like to know more about how you can help your child with their reading , please contact one of us at school . We are always happy to help!
