Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

What happens after reading?
Once a child has read a book, they take a book quiz; this always happens in school. We recommend that this is taken as soon as possible after finishing the book. At the end of the quiz, the child will find out their score (and so will any parent who has requested this through Home Access). It may seem strange, but we are not aiming for 100% every time!
Check that the correct quiz is taken
Please ensure that the correct quiz number is added, not the title. There are books with the same author and title, but at different levels. By typing the title of a book, your child could end up taking a quiz that is much harder than the text that has been read.
From time to time, we find that children take the quizzes for films that they have watched! This may be tempting, but it is definitely worth a word of warning. The quizzes have been specifically written so that it is almost impossible to score over 85% from the film alone.
