How to pronounce sounds

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/reading-owl/find-a-book/read-write-inc-phonics–1/phonics-pure-sounds-video

This video shows to pronounce all the sounds so that children can learn to blend and read more easily. It is really important not to over-emphasise the sounds – for example, ‘c’ is a short sound, not ‘cuh’. Any of our staff will be happy to explain more, please just ask us.

General information

 

As a school we are currently working towards renewing the Primary Science Quality Mark. This is a process which involves developing and improving the teaching and learning in Science and raising the profile of the subject both within and outside of school. The award recognises that the Science taught within school is high quality, the children are enthusiastic about their Science learning,  and progress and attainment improve as a result. The award lasts for 4 years and then has to be renewed. We have held the award for many, many years at Westwood and we are working hard to be awarded it again.
Part of the process involves establishing a set of principles and a vision for Science for our school. These have been developed with the help of teachers and children and are referred to regularly as part of Science lessons. Here is a copy for you to see.
