Handball competition

On Thursday 5th November a team of eight year 5 & 6 children took part in an inter-school Handball competition.  The children played extremely well, battling against other schools in terrible weather conditions.  We are very proud of how well the children played with many goals being saved and scored in all their matches.  Congratulations to Sinead, Imogen, Amy, Rudi, Benjamin, Samuel, Jennifer and Tommy

KS2 Maths Workshop

Make it!  Draw it!  Write it! is our new approach  for developing mathematical thinking, giving the children opportunities to develop their understanding through building models of a mathematical problem, drawing pictures to develop and communicate understanding and only having gone through these stages recording their findings using signs and symbols.  This new approach is the way forward to develop mathematic masters!

The workshop held for KS2 parents was aimed to demonstrate how we teach the 4 operations using the Make it! Draw it! Write it! model.  This will give parents the confidence to engage and support their children at home when faced with mathematical problems. We will hopefully hold another session later in the year for those who were unable to attend. KS1 will also be holding one too.

“ I found the maths workshop for KS2 parents really interesting and beneficial. The maths equipment the children use really help them to visualise numbers. It was a very relaxed atmosphere where parents could ask teachers to demonstrate how children are taught so we can help them at home” – Parent Quote

Year 5 and 6 Sportshall Competition

On Thursday 27th November a team of 23 Year 5 and 6 pupils participated in a Sportshall competition at The Stour Centre alongside 19 other teams. It was an exciting and noisy event enjoyed by all those who took park. The children all did their best and enjoyed the range of indoor athletic events including an obstacle relay, over/under relay, sprints and longer distance events. In the field events they took part in a range of throwing and jumping activities. At the beginning of the event we aimed to finish in the top 10 of the schools involved and the children were thrilled to finish 9th out of the 20 teams.
