Summer term 2017!
Welcome back to the Summer term, we have many exciting opportunities planned to support the children and their learning. In school, the Summer term is a very busy time in year 2.
The children in year 2 will be preparing for the end of Key Stage 1 assessments (SATs) and there will be a Parents information workshop taking place on Tuesday 25th April 3.30-4.30pm or alternatively 5.30-6.30pm.
During this meeting, the staff in year 2 will explain the assessment process and give parents information about how you can support your child during this time. The support which you give your child at home by completing homework is key to supporting them with their learning at school, thank you to all those parents who are doing this.
Now that the weather is warming up, please can parents ensure that their child has a water bottle in school every day.
As we reach the final term of this academic year , reading, writing and maths continue to be a key area of focus for us. We want our children at Nightingale to develop all the skills they will need in order to face the world of tomorrow. Our curriculum has been developed from the National Curriculum 2014.
It offers exciting opportunities for developing children's subject specific skills and knowledge and also important opportunities for helping children to recognise links between curriculum subjects. This helps children to make connections between prior knowledge and new information and experiences, and also offers opportunities to apply and embed skills in meaningful and purposeful contexts.
