Exciting news for home reading!

To support your child with reading at home, we have subscribed to the Oxford Owl eBook Library giving access to more than 500 ebooks for use across the age range from Reception to Year 6.

Over the next week or so, your child’s teacher will be in touch with details of how to log in to the library and what your child will be expected to do to ensure that they continue to develop their reading skills whilst learning at home.

Please see the leaflet for more information. If you have any further questions, please contact the class teacher in the usual way.

What have Bembridge class been doing so far?

Year 1 and 2

On Wednesday KS1 had a visit from the fire service. The officer explored fire safety and what to do in an emergency. He also set homework for the grown-ups at home – please test your smoke alarms! If you don’t have one, or they’re not working, please contact the school and the fire service can support you with making your homes safer. This was linked to the learning around the Great Fire of London in history.

The children enjoyed having a visitor in school and sitting socially distanced together in the hall – the first time in over a year!

We have been exploring which patterns and shapes we can make using everyday objects!

KS1 have been exploring ideas that have come from sharing the book Here We Are. It encourages us to think about how to keep healthy and how we need to look after the world around us. Here are a few posters that the children have made which we hope to share with the island’s new Beach Ambassadors!

Here is a list of the Year 1 Common Exception Words – please practise reading and spelling these words with your child.
