Some of our fantastic children took part in a Mother's Day writing competition which was organised by Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre.


Children had to complete an entry form and write about why their Mum is magical and why she should be treated on Mother's Day.


The work is on display, in a shop window, at Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre (opposite Poundland). We are really proud of our super writers and good luck to all who entered.

We had a fantastic World Book Day and children really enjoyed all of the different activities that were planned for them.


Our favourite is the 'Teacher Swap'. Teachers visit a different class and read them a story of their choice. This year, Julia Donaldson books were a popular choice!

We love to read at Timberley!


On a Wednesday, some of our Year 5 children come and help Year 2 with their reading. They share a story in a Year 2 classroom and our older children help Year 2 children to sound out unfamiliar words and encourage them to use their phonic knowledge. Year 5 are really good at asking our Year 2 children questions to help with their comprehension.
