This month we have had a group of parents working with the literacy coordinator, Andrea Gale on a three week course to discuss current teaching and learning processes at MPPS.
Over the three weeks week have covered
Yesterday the whole school took part in the annual National Simultaneous Reading Time where we read the picture story book, The Brothers Quibble written by Aaron Blabey. Thanks to our wonderful reader, Dave Kiddle who really looked the part! The story was enjoyed by young and old(er) and many were able to relate to its theme of sibling relationships/rivalry. Classes then carried out some follow up activities about the story. Thanks to all who attended and enjoyed the story. What a fantastic thought, that we were enjoying this at the exact same time as many thousand other children and teachers across the entire country! Sharing the love of literature.
Here you will find information about the common language and strategies used across our school and within your child’s classroom. These include Strategies for Reading, the key Comprehension Strategies and ways to support your child’s spelling. Besides giving an insight into what your child is learning the aim of this site is also to provide practical activities for you to do with your child at home and questions you can ask your child to help them learn.
If you have any questions please see your child’s classroom teacher.
