"I am excited to share in the experiences and opportunities that will be afforded to the children under our new Computing curriculum.
As we move into an ever-increasing digital age, we must prepare our children for tomorrow’s technology and how to use this technology safely.
Computing is a vast subject where children will be coding games, programming robots and creating digital content and they will be able to apply these skills in the wider world."
Mr Eyres is our Maths Champion and works with children around the school to promote maths.
"Maths Mondays’ are back! Commencing this term with Mr Eyres, the focus will again be on learning times-tables.
Children will be encouraged to develop their knowledge of times-tables through different strategies, including: games, bingo, small ‘bite’ learning and rote learning with encouragement along the way to earn maths stickers!
We encourage all our children to practise their times-tables at home; they are integral to many areas of maths and will help increase your child’s confidence in class. Please spend time supporting your child when practising at home. We are always appreciative of your help."
Our reading Ambassador works with all children across to the school, both to teach reading strategies and develop a lifelong love of reading. Mrs Murray meets with small groups of children each day, in our reading caravan, on the key stage 2 playground. This provides an exciting environment to stimulate a passion for books.
