Mrs Holt held a Maths session on Tuesday – she gave parents who attended an idea of how we teach Maths (not the way we learned!) and most importantly talked about having a Growth Mindset- ‘can-do’ attitude to the subject. Too often we say that we are not good at Maths as adults, encouraging the children to believe that this is fixed and immovable. We try to encourage our children to see learning as fun and something we all do throughout life and that making mistakes are a vital part of learning. She also talked about using bar modelling as an effective visual model for children to draw upon to solve problems. Bar models present the problems in their simple set form without the need for complicated notation. They can also be used in a range of areas of Maths which makes them particularly useful.

Our New Robins loved their first Forest School trip!

We had an amazing trip to the Ernest Cook Trust on Wednesday, where we created and played musical instruments made out of nature! The children were an absolute delight – they were very well behaved. We all had a great time. Thank you so much to the parent helpers who made the trip possible – Mrs Tustin, Mrs Riley, Mrs Whewell, Mrs Wycherley, Mr Harris, Mrs Oliver, Mrs Osbourne, Mrs Miller, Ms Fry, Mrs Weatherley-Kaye, Mrs Steward & Mr Turner.
