Dear Chilwell Families,
As I look through our newsletter this month it is so lovely to see all of the positive experiences our children have been taking part in. From residentials to swimming on site it certainly has been a fun-packed diary for Chilwell Croft!
As we seek to support our pupils to become positive citizens of the future we understand that experiences make up a big part of that education. Staff and pupils are working hard in their classes, and with you at home, to ensure that our children are robust in their primary education. As we move away from the cycle of lockdowns we are supporting our pupils to close the gaps that the pandemic has created. We would like to thank you for your support with reading at home. Reading each day is such a critical thing for developing minds as it opens the door to all other subjects and of course is such a wonderful experience to have. World Book Day is always such a happy time in school and included in this newsletter are some of the images from the day. As we strive to improve our children’s start in reading through our phonics programme we are pleased to advise that Chilwell is starting the journey in moving to become a Read Write Inc School with our first whole school training event taking place in May. We will be providing more information soon about how this will support your child’s learning and how the scheme will be carried out in school.
