EVERY CHILD CAN BE A READER ! …

Our wonderful PSAs (Pupil Support Assistants) help many of us to practise and improve our READING SKILLS by using our TOE BY TOE books …

Thanks to funds raised by pupils, parents and carers when attending events organised by the CKPS PARENT COUNCIL, many of us have been enjoying improving our READING SKILLS using some FANTASTIC NEW BOOKS – why not take a moment to ask your child what they remember about the book they’ve been reading, as shown in one of the photographs below …

While they were reading this first chapter, pupils were looking out for words with the ‘er’ sound:

Did you know?! … one person in this group has flown over MOUNT EVEREST and seen the highest mountain in the world from the aeroplane window! As we read and listened to one another reading the book called EVEREST, we looked out for any words wiTH a ‘th’ sound …

Another group began to read a book called “I Never Liked Wednesdays!” by Roger McGough …

Those of us reading Fox Friend by Michael Morpurgo had fun being illustrators, 🦊 as well as being readers … Fred Frog is hugely impressed by our efforts and progress. 🐸 …

Fred Frog and his friends loved meeting a 56 year-old teddy bear 🧸 when we were reading a book called Scruffy Ted! Each day at school (and hopefully at home too), we use various different activities to practise and improve our reading skills … Fred Frog hopes you might find 5 minutes to chat with your child about some of what we’ve been doing over the last few days 😊 …

At CKPS we ♥️ to CELEBRATE SUCCESS ! …

… recently we had success planting, growing, harvesting AND … eating ! our very own CARROT! 🥕It tasted DELICIOUS! 😋

When Fred Frog threw the dice at the end of our lesson, we shared our thoughts about everybody’s successes… one of us said “WELL DONE FOR FANTASTIC FINGER SPELLING!”

… and finally … in school, we now have a brand new Celebrating Our Wider Success board to celebrate all the many times we have had success achieving things when we’re not at school. 👏

Have a lovely L_O_N_G weekend, Mrs Dale
