It is hard to believe that we are at the end of another half term and that we will soon be entering our last term before the Summer break. One of our main focuses this term has been on the development of children’s vocabulary across all subject areas. Teachers introduce pupils to a variety of words that will help them in learning of knowledge and concepts. It has been great to see this vocabulary then make its way into children’s everyday conversation and also into the written work. Children in year 4 have been learning about the meaning of society, parliament and law, whilst pupils in year 2 have been learning vocabulary related to seaside towns such as bay, and pier. It  is important that new words are used as often as possible so that they are remembered. If you would like to support your child with this please ask them what new words they have learnt and ask them to explain what they mean. This will really help with their understanding.

We’re looking for Parents Governors
