Reading VIPERS is a method we use to support children with their reading comprehension skills. All children work on VIPERS during class reading, whether it is reading as a class, in a small group, or one-to-one with an adult.
As part of the Early Years Curriculum, we encourage children to learn through outdoor play. Research shows that the world is best experienced in its natural form. We believe that the child’s first experience with the world around him/her will go on to have a profound influence upon their lives. Thus, we have developed a curriculum which allows our children to engage in that which is organic and natural; from learning about growing fruits and vegetables, playing with handmade toys carved from natural wood and having fun in the forest.
During our coffee morning on 19th of November 2019 we discussed the importance of Reading and how to foster love and enjoyment of reading at home.
Week beginning 18th of November 2019, we welcomed parents from Year 1 to Year 6 into our classrooms.

As part of our History curriculum and work with other communities, Year 5 looked at WWII and the Great Battle of Britain. To support what they do in school we organised a Heritage Trail around Braunstone Village in partnership with Emmanuel Christian School and in association with our Heritage Award partners on 13th of November 2019
