Reading Spine

We have introduced a store of classic books into each year group called a ‘Reading Spine’. Each year group will read these books, adding other favourites, so that the children become familiar with these core books. Each week the teacher will read some books from the reading spine, other story books, a traditional tale and a non-fiction book. Teachers will also read poems and nursery rhymes every day. Each year group will also read the Reading Spine books of the previous years if applicable.

Great books build the imagination. The more we read aloud expressively, the more memorable the characters, places and events become, building an inner world. Each great book develops the imagination and equips the reader with language. Around 75% of our vocabulary comes from our reading.

“A child who is read to will have an inner kingdom of unicorns, talking spiders and a knife that cuts into other words.” (Pie Corbett)

When entering for the first time please select the school’s portal by searching for Moat Farm Infant School.

Then type in your username and password (found in the front of your homework book).

All homework set can be found in the ‘2do’ tab. 

Children do not need to print off their work, just make sure they save it and click ‘hand in’ so their teacher can view it.

Just a quick reminder about PE.  Children should not have their PE bags in school and need to come to school on their PE day wearing their PE clothes.  This can be a tee-shirt, sweatshirt, hoodie, jumper, leggings, tracksuit bottoms and trainers.  PE will take place outdoors unless it is raining so please make sure they come dressed in warm clothes.  Children should not be wearing any jewellery.
