These eager readers have been completing Mr Maher's animal comprehension quizzes at home! 

The quizzes include information on squirrels, orangutans and amphibians, and are accessible either through a QR code on the back of your child's reading record, or by clicking here

Complete a quiz and bring in your answers for us to see for a potential merit!

Keep up the fabulous work at home, we look forward to more children making their comprehension brains stronger! 

Cedar Reading Cafe

We would like to extend a well deserved thank you to all the Cedar parents who came to one (or all!) of our Reading Cafe mornings. 

It was fantastic to see all of the shared reading, expressions, discussions and questions coming out between parents and their children. 

As mentioned during the mornings, the DfE has found that parent-child shared reading is the easiest and most effective way to boost a child's attainment, increase their chances of success later in life and provides some special bonding time. 

We hope that you all had as much fun as we did and will continue the incredible work you're doing with your children with nightly reading at home. 

Learning Challenges In Cedar!

Learning Challenges! 

These children have been doing some fantastic work at home, completing their learning challenges and taking on extra projects!

Katlyn researched about Georgia O'Keeffe, and even drew a flower in the style of the artist! 

Keep up the fantastic work everyone, we look forward to seeing more learning challenges come through!
