Thank you for your co-operation last Tuesday when we had to close the school unexpectedly for the day. This was due to a power failure which left us without lighting, heating and fire alarms which meant we could not allow pupils or staff in the building. Thankfully the fault was quickly repaired and we were only closed for one day.
Last Monday we were visited by two representatives from the Department for Education. This was a very positive experience, they were impressed with the improvements we have made and said it had been a privilege to visit such a welcoming school and the children were a delight.
Wider Curriculum Activities
On Wednesday Miss Oldbury held a phonics workshop for Nursery and Reception parents where she explained how we teach phonics to the children. Parents found this really helpful and here are some of their comments:
‘I will apply these techniques at home now I know how they are taught.’
‘It was a very helpful session, now I know what phonics is.’
‘I am from Pakistan and we read the alphabet not the sound, this is why it was very helpful to me. I learnt a lot’
‘It was most helpful and gave me so many ideas to do with my little one at home.’
This will be followed up with a demonstration lesson in Nursery & Reception classes on Monday and Tuesday next week so please come along and see how we teach phonics in the classroom.
These workshops are designed to give you information on how we teach your children so that you can help them with their learning at home, it is therefore important that you attend if at all possible. Full details of all our future workshops can be found on the website at www.erdhall.bham.sch.uk
The children in year 2 and 3 visited the Hippodrome Theatre on Thursday to see Jack and the Beanstalk. The children were exceptionally well behaved and had wonderful time. They will now use this experience as a base for their literacy work around traditional tales.
On Friday we were pleased to be hosting a year 5 workshop for more able pupils from schools across the Erdington area. The theme was ‘Unsinkable’ (Titanic) and the focus was on historical literacy, questioning, reasoning and enquiring. They collaborated with children from other schools, exchanging ideas, communicating effectively.
