Mrs Wainwright, Miss Cain, Miss Rama, Miss Smith, Mrs Wills, Mrs Ellam and Mr Wilkins welcome you! 


July 2020 - I wanted to take the opportunity to say have a lovely summer break. It has been a successful year and one that has laid the foundations for the future. Many thanks for your support.


Next story - Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Miss Cain and Mr Wilkins have been busy making you some more videos that you can watch over the summer break. Just like last time, Miss Cain has recorded the story in BSL and SSE as well as creating two levels of questions with the answers. Enjoy!

We are pleased to introduce our new online learning resources, made exclusively just for you. These will be updated regularly so please keep logging on! 

Miss Cain and Mr Wilkins have created some videos that you can access at home.


There are currently two versions of Little Red Riding Hood, one in BSL (British Sign Language) and one in SSE (Sign Supported English)  along with some questions and answers to go with the story. Read the story together and then encourage your child to answer the questions. You could then maybe create some other questions about the story and ask these to your child. 

Below are the YouTube links for the stories and the questions. There are two levels of questions, level one and level two. The level two questions are slightly more challenging than the level one. These are closed links so you wouldn't find them in a search engine.

As well as the signed stories, we have also created some video resources to help you practise Visual Phonics. These have been separated into sets and in the Read Write Inc. order in which they are taught. Your child may not be confident with all sets at this moment in time, but exposure to the ones they have not yet learnt along with rehearsal of the ones they have previously experienced will help them with the segmenting and blending skills needed for reading and writing. 

Sets 1 and 2


Sets 3,4 and 5


Sets 6 and 7



My last update this week is a video that I wanted to share with you all. Warstones Primary School have really embraced learning how to communicate through the use of sign language. Below is a signed song for you to enjoy.
