Read, Write, Inc News

We are a “Get Reading. Keep Reading. Change Everything.” school.
We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell. Our children do well in the phonics screening check and by Year 2, the majority are fluent readers.
Ruth Miskin Training recognise us for teaching the programme with fidelity and passion – we know what it takes to make reading and writing pleasurable and rewarding for our children.

This badge recognises that we:

  • Raise standards in reading and writing for our children
  • Are all expertly trained by Ruth Miskin Training – including our headteacher (Mrs Swinton)
  • Gain the latest programme updates through regular visits from our Ruth Miskin trainer
  • Support our most vulnerable readers with extra one-to-one teaching every day.

Enterprise Day at Haddington Infant School

It was Enterprise Day on Friday 9th June. Each class was given a budget and their task was to make things that they could then sell and try to make as much of a profit as they could! Parents and carers were invited in to buy the products and the children had a great time selling their items.  The children and teachers are very excited about finding out which class has made the most money!

Health Week

Today marks the start of Health Week in the nursery and school. Lots of exciting activities will be taking place and we will have many visitors in the school working with the children on various aspects of health and wellbeing. Some of the activities include: Jo Jingles, Enjoyaball, Tiger Cubs, a safety talk from a local police officer, fruit and vegetable tasting to name just a few.

Happy New Year

We would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

Hopefully everyone had a good time over the Christmas holidays and you are ready for another busy term ahead. Our school and nursery newsletters go out soon – please take time to read the newsletters as there will be lots of useful information included.
