St Nicholas Church of EnglandPrimary Academy


Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy




During this term we will be focusing on Writing to Persuade. With this genre we will be learning about writing a persuasive letter as well as creating a persuasive advert tv advert. We will begin with discussing what we love about our school and what makes St Nicholas amazing. 


We we have made a mind map about all of this things we love about our school. 

































In Year 4 children are expected to read 5 times a week and make entries into their own reading journals. This could be what they have learnt, what they have read about or what they enjoyed of the book. Whilst the children can read alone, it is encouraged for them to read aloud to an adult. This helps them with words that they don't know and enables the adult to ask questions about the book, building the children's comprehension skills. If you would like a list of some simple questions that you could ask, please speak to Mrs Oliver. 

Keep reading Year 3 and let's try and have the most tickets in the box every Friday! 


During our Reading lessons at school, we spend Monday's and Friday's lessons working with our Class Book. During the rest of our Reading lessons we focus on Reading Comprehension skills using high quality fiction texts, non-fiction texts and poems.
