Headteacher blog 14th February
It has been a positive half term with lots of good progress and exciting, engaging lessons. Every week, the class blogs give a wonderful insight into the life of the school and it is wonderful to see the rich, vibrant curriculum shining through.
On Wednesday, I had the pleasure of covering class 4K for an hour or so whilst they were completing their pop-up books about animals. They are a rewarding class to teach: really engaged and keen to contribute. Of course, an interesting curriculum helps as Mrs Kroon and Mr Beevers had set the task of creating these interactive books to showcase the children’s writing skills and knowledge of vertebrates and invertebrates. They also had a purpose and audience: sharing them with their Y1 reading buddies.
Later on Wednesday the whole school staff had refresher child protection training and then the governors were delighted to receive an interesting and impressive presentation about science from our subject leads Miss Levett and Mrs Galbraith. On Thursday, lots of parents were able to come to our Y1 art gallery which is always a fabulous event. We also had a group of Reception children making an impromptu visit to a gurdwara: a great example of a ‘nimble’ school curriculum that can be responsive to children’s interests.
Have a great half term break!
