5/5/2020 Change of Age Range Consultation. We are consulting with parents and other stakeholders around changing our Age Range. Currently our age range is 4 to 11. We would like to change our age range to 2 to 11. This would allow us to open a new Nursery in September 2021.
There is a formal meeting via zoom on May 10th 2021 at 3:30pm. Details have been sent to all stakeholders. The office can also supply these details on request.
If you have any additional questions please email the Head Teacher at head@berrycoombe.cornwall.sch.uk. Please put 'Age range change Consultation' in the email header. The Consultation will conclude on the 4th June 2021.

Our Library has just gone online

Teachers will have supplied you with Myon log in details (Year 1 and Reception coming soon)

Once your child has logged on, they will have access Myon which is like Netflix for books. There are over 5700 books that you child can read.  A whole library at their finger tips.

The books are carefully levelled so they match your child’s reading level.  There are thousands of books to read, and children have the option of reading themselves, or having the book read to them.  They can instantly look up words they do not know and are able to take short online multiple-choice quizzes at the end of the book to see how well they have understood. 

This uses the same accelerated reader technology we use in school with the older children (KS2) and teachers can assess and feedback on how your child is doing.  The children already understand what to do but just in case, each teacher has provided a short tutorial on their class page on the school website.  Just click on the ‘Classroom’ tab and select your child’s class. 

Happy reading.
