CBeebies helped us with our phonics.

Rhyme Rockets came and performed to all the children in Reception in Year 1. They helped us, through songs accompanied by their guitar playing, to spot rhyming words which fit with the story. All the children enjoyed joining in through choral chanting as well as dancing. Thank you to the cast from CBeebies for helping us with our learning.

Reading for Pleasure at Charles Dickens Primary School

Our friends at Nosy Crow book publishers recently asked Miss Chapleo to write a blog post for them to tell their readers all about what we have been doing to encourage reading for pleasure at our school.

Visit the Nosy Crow blog to read the full post about our Book of the Month initiative and how we have been rejuvenating our reading corners!


Welcome to your Awesome Robot.

Year 1 have been inspired by the book they are studying in to designing and building their own robots. I’m sure you will agree, they have used their paired work and design skills (especially the technical dials) brilliantly. We can’t wait to read their instructions. Enjoy these photos of the awesome robots taking over Lant Street!
