Career and Aspiration Week

This year as part of Career and Aspiration week the children had the opportunity to interview a range of visitors about their jobs including a meteorologist, a midwife and fire service. They also enjoyed watching a magic show by Wacky Woody a children’s magician and learned about working with animals by taking part in activities with Steven ‘the bug man’ from Wild Workshops.

Thank you to those parents that gave up their time to speak to the children and helped to make the week a success.



Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar workshop

On the 13th February we ran a Spelling Punctuation and Grammar workshop for Parents and Carers in School.

Thank you to the people that attended and found the SPaG workshop helpful and informative.

I have added the PowerPoint and some games with hyper links that the children can access at home.

NSPCC Digital safety workshop for parents

Dear Parents and Carers

We’re here to help you keep your child safe online

O2 and the NSPCC have joined forces on a mission to help all children and their families in the UK stay safe online. Together, they’re offering useful tools, support and guidance to help parents and carers have frequent conversations with their children about their online lives.

Our free online safety workshop for parents and carers

We would like to invite all parents, carers or family members to a free online safety workshop at Corrie Primary at 2.30pm on Monday 26th February 2018. The content covered in the workshops is aimed at adults. Parents with children are advised to arrange childcare if possible.

The hour-long workshop will help parents, carers and other adults understand their child’s online world, build confidence to have those important conversations that can help keep children safe online and help you know where to go for help and advice.

“After coming to this workshop today, I realise the importance of having conversations with my child rather than avoid the subject. I didn’t know there were things I could do to make it better, I’m so glad I came to this workshop. I will definitely be calling the helpline or going into store to get some help, thank you.” – Parent who attended the workshop


Phonics Workshop

The information on the Phonics PowerPoint explains the different Phonic phases and the sounds the children learn in each Phonics phase. It briefly explains the Year 1 phonics test the children sit in the summer term.

Thank you to the year 1 parents who attended the Phonics work shop today. I am happy to share information with any parents that could not attend the work shop.

Career and Aspiration Week 2017

Corrie Primary School had a Career and Aspiration week, week beginning 6th February 2017. The week is linked to Social Emotional Aspects of Learning ‘Going For Goals’ topic and is aimed to help raise the children’s aspirations and future economic well-being.

The children had the chance to speak to a variety of visitors about their job including a soldier, a veterinary nurse, a forensic scientist, an architect, a musician and a TV director. The children even had the opportunity to go inside a planetarium and look at the role of an astronomer! The children thoroughly enjoyed the week and feedback in a whole school assembly. ‘My favourite visitor was a TV director. She travelled the world and it looked fun because she filmed TV shows and worked with lots of different people.’ Hannah Hampton-Smith.
