Parents and school working together
At Hinguar Primary we aim to regularly invite parents in to our school to share in their child's learning-work alongside events, class assemblies and special school event days.
We also organise workshops to provide further information about the work and learning in our school to give insights into how parents can support their child's learning at home. For those parents who are unable to make our workshops, information from the workshops can be found and downloaded below for the following:
RWI Parent Workshop 6th November

Developing our children as writers. Part 1 Mark Making 18th November
During Part 1 of our Mark Making workshops parents were shown the developmental milestones of physical development in preparation for writing and explored activities that we use in school to support children's physical development. Parents took part in a dough gym routine, were shown letter formations and took part in a Jedi writing session and a typical handwriting session for KS2. For further details on handwriting please download our handwriting policy which includes in its appendices the progression of letter formation and joins.
Developing our children as writers Part 2 Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling - 2nd December
During Part 2 Mrs. Bird and Mrs. Sheern shared with parents the end of year expectations regarding grammar, punctuation and spellings, the strategies the school uses to teach and encourage these through childrens' writing and how these will be tested at end of each Key Stage. A range of resources and game ideas where discussed.
