On Wednesday 24th January 2024 at 4.30pm at Kirkby Malzeard parents are invited to attend a meeting to look at our new Key Stage 2 reading programme, which the children have started and enjoyed in school this week. Our new programme looks very different to how reading has been taught previously.  Please come along to find out what we are doing and to ask any questions you may have.
Parents' Forum on Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
Many thanks to all those parents and carers across the federation who offered help to review our RSE Policy at last term's meeting about our PSHE curriculum.  Those of you with eagle eyes may have spotted that a date next week had been posted on the school website but has now been removed.  This is because Miss Mandelson (Federation PSHE Lead) has training scheduled in February which will help with this work.  Therefore, the meeting has been postponed until after the half-term break.  More information will follow in due course.

KS2 Reading
This week we will be starting to use our new learning to read resources in Key Stage 2. This is a new approach for readers in KS2 and will be in line with the approach currently used in EYFS and KS1.  Children across the key stage will be reading in small mixed age groups closely Today matched to their learning to read needs. This approach to learning to read includes not only decoding but fluency, prosody, comprehension, connection to reading and on building confident readers with a life-long love of reading.
Children will closely read a book in school over a two-week period, after this time the book will come home for a couple of nights to celebrate and enjoy. It is important to return the books when asked so that the next group of children can begin reading (this day will be recorded in your child’s reading record).  At home please encourage your young reader to read a wide range of books, magazines, comics and graphic novels as part of their Reading for Pleasure practice.

Online Gaming - Roblox
Online gaming can be great fun for our children and we teach widely in school about how to be safe when playing online. A game we know many of our children (across the school) enjoy is Roblox. This site can be suitable for a wide age-range but needs to be managed carefully with support from adults at home. Please see the following website for  specific information and advice to support you at home: www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/online-safety-blog/roblox/
