The Importance of Bedtime Reading for Children – this website has lots of suggested books and tips to make bedtime reading engaging.
Teachers have had to be very inventive to create and give rewards for the Ready Steady Read challenge winners. This week those children with a line AND a column completed received a silent disco using our Now Press Play equipment! Well done and keep reading!
We still support the NHS and all key workers!
We took part in a project called ‘Hear My Story’ with TATE, London. We hope the photographs show how quickly our children and their families have adapted to learning online and staying at home. Each photograph shows our pupils with an object that is special to them. It has been fascinating to see and hear about all the amazing personal history Engayne children have!
We have also created a montage of all the photos across the school. To view the video please click here.
Summer Term has begun with Year Two children designing and making their own carnival T shirts as part of their work learning about St Lucia! 2C have been enjoying their forest school sessions making shelters and using the equipment in the mud kitchen and finishing off with a campfire.
Year 2 battled with the weather but had a fantastic time at sports day! They also performed their carnival dance to show off their wonderful T shirt designs and masks making a fun end to the St Lucia topic! We finished the half term with “World of Work Week” where the children learned all about the different kinds of jobs and opportunities they will have when they get older! They even dressed up as their future career!
We support and celebrate reading on World Book Day!
