As a school we have been developing speaking and listening skills through show and tell, 1 minute presentations and poetry recital. Have you seen your child practising these skills at home and have they become more confident speakers?

Comments:

Show and tell.

It really helps, hope this will continue.

He was so happy to do show and tell, he chose his toys however, he was disappointed when it didn’t happen on that particular day.

Always excited to show and tell.

My child enjoys doing show and tell and likes making up her own rhymes and songs from what she has learnt at school.

Children do not have enough ideas to present themselves.

I am able to support my child’s learning at home.

  • Improve PE lessons. The school has appointed a specialist PE teacher to teach sports and fitness across the school.
  • Have a wide range of after school clubs including: sports, fitness, learning and homework. The school’s clubs co-ordinator is reviewing club allocatios for 2013/14.
  • Numeracy or Literacy extra support. The school’s inclusion team has created a map of inclusion for 2013/14, targeting key children to ensure progress across the school.
  • More variety of school dinners including a bigger range of sandwiches. The school leadership team is working with the school cook to review menus for 2013/14 including sandwich options.
  • Develop the playground and the school site. See expansion display in the entrance hall.
  • Let children wear sandals in the summer. Children will be able to wear white or brown sandals from September 2013.
  • More visitors within school. The school enrichment co-ordinator is working with co-ordinators and teachers to ensure a wide range of enrichment is enjoyed by all children at St. Stephen’s.
  • Develop a library for children to use. The school has invested heavily in new books for class libraries alongside taking year groups to local libraries to encourage reading.
  • Parent English classes. We hope to continue to run the newham family learning classes this academic year.
