RWI Case Study

We are delighted to be featured on the RWI website. Over the last 7 years our staff have worked tirelessly to improve reading outcomes for pupils.

In 2012 only 25% of Year 1 children passed the Phonics Screening Check. Following the implementation on RWI we have seen results improve year on year so that now we are typically above the National Average.

Well done Team Broadford and thank you to RWI for the ongoing support and challenge to be better every today than we were yesterday.

World Book day - Thursday 1st March 2018

Thursday 1st March is world book day.
We are going to celebrate the day by asking all pupils to dress as their favourite book character for the day. The children could be Harry, Matilda or Alice and we are looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful ideas that you come up with. There will be prizes for the most imaginative character costumes from each class!
Please be mindful when choosing a costume as the children will still be going outside for play  as usual during the day. Ensure that your child wears their coat over their costume and has on sensible shoes such as their school shoes or trainers.

We have lots of activities planned including a teachers book bingo, the children will need to match the quotes from children's literature to the teacher. We will also be playing hide and seek with books! 

Looking forward to seeing all of the children dressed up as their favourite characters!
