Welcome to Cadbury Nurture

Welcome Back and Happy New Year to you all.

This Term

For the first couple of weeks, we will be revisiting classroom rules and focussing on our school motto of Work Hard: Be Kind. We will then study Gruffalo’s Child to develop reading skills, writing and spelling of key words. This will then be followed by our main topic – WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) which will culminate with our next open day on Friday 27th March to coincide with WWF's Earth Hour. We will be learning about different habitats around the world and the impact climate change and deforestation is having on endangered animals. We will be then be creating an exhibition open to parents, carers and pupils and we look forward to seeing you on Friday 27th March.

Life Skills

We will be considering appropriate clothing for winter, how to make healthy sandwiches and also the importance of good teeth brushing.

Open Day: Friday 27th March

As discussed above, we will have an exhibition to show off your child's awesome work on the WWF. More details to follow.

Thank you!

A huge thank you to those who attended our Art Gallery event - the children worked extremely hard on their art work and we all appreciate you coming to support us. We raised enough money to pay for our trip to see The Gruffalo at the theatre!

High Praise indeed.

Our recent OFSTED visit was in June and they loved visiting our children in Cadbury class! They even mentioned it in the report! "Specialist provision for a group of pupils with significant additional needs meets their individual needs very effectively. The use of Makaton throughout the day and a rich range of carefully chosen resources ensure that pupils make good progress towards their individual targets." OFSTED June 2019

A Huge Thank You

Thank you for your continued support especially with reading at home – we have noticed some great progress with ALL the children! They are becoming wonderful independent learners and we continue to be amazed by them.

Cadbury Class Open Days

We had an amazing 'Mini Beast hunt and picnic' on Wednesday 26th June. Thank you to those who were able to attend including our school governor Mr Henderson. We were very lucky to be able to release some of our butterflies - a fantastic experience for all!

​ Even our parents got involved!!

If there is any support you would like us to focus on for our next open morning, please speak to Miss Mousley or Mrs Bradford.

New Sensory Room

For some children, the lights and sounds of school can be overwhelming and can cause anxiety or difficulty with learning. Our new sensory room will allow children time to process and understand their sensory needs. Our new projector, which creates moving images across the walls, will also be used within our curriculum to support children with their reading and writing.

Life Skills

Every Thursday afternoon, the children take part in Life Skills - an important part of their holistic growth here at Victoria Primary School. We support the children with a range of life skills and the children absolutely love taking part - especially if it is cooking week! The rest of this academic year will be full of more exciting experiences and trips which we will keep you updated on. Should you wish to find out more about Life Skills, please come and speak to Mrs Bradford or Miss Mousley (SENCo)

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact either Lee Bradford or Rachel Mousley via the school office.
