“Lots of fantastic art work, lovely to see J

“So impressed by all the beautiful artwork on display. Really enjoyed hearing about it all from the very knowledgeable children. Thank you!”

"Thank you for a really informative morning, and taking time to inform us. It was really interesting to see how you are making reading more interesting and also more understanding for the children".
"A really interesting insight into reading".
"Very Informative and a great opportunity to find out about 1:1 Reading and the skill letter code, which will be used in Year 1 with my daughter. I will work on retrieval at home with J  to develop her reading."
"Really useful to see how the curriculum in different classes are learning and practicing reading. I think the new methods look interesting and varied and I think my child will respond well to
them. Also useful for teachers to assess the reading in a structured way."
At the end of a school trip to Hollywoodbowl, Kirkstall:

"The pupils have been exceptionally well behaved. They are well mannered, polite and very caring to each other. It has been a pleasure."
Staff Members; Hollywood Bowl 14/6/18
"I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all you have done to nurture the pupils of your school particularly as far as Hantang has experienced, he loves your school. He came to join your school from the second half of his reception year, it has been nearly six and half years, Hantang from a very little boy now has grown bit by bit up to become a boy who has the sense of integrity, fairness and kindness... We see all the way that Hantang has been growing. To today's stage, Hantang is ready and well prepared to go to his secondary education, his attitude towards study, his curiosity in science, his efforts into arts and his goal driving motivation, all of these are attributed to the stage by stage education that your school has wonderfully provided."
Hantang's Father, Year 6, May 2018
