The Porthill Team
Welcome back for the Spring Term
We hope you have had a lovely Christmas break. We are excited to welcome you back for the Spring term. Porthill Class looks different as we have moved the tables around. Children will spend some of their day sitting in rows and some of the day sitting in groups. Here are some pictures of what it will look like.
Buddy reading started again and the children really enjoyed it. We are paired with pupils from Attingham class who have had some training in how to support the younger children reading.
