It has felt like a more normal week back in school this week with the majority of the clubs starting up again. We had a new French club start this week run by a Ms. Pavlou. All the children enjoyed it and she was very impressed at how well the children participated in the session and with their behaviour. It is always good when somebody from outside of the school community comes in and praises our pupils.
As we informed you in our action plan we have started a new handwriting scheme this term. We have had a lot of positive feedback from the children about the programme and, more importantly, it is helping to improve the presentation of the children’s work. Next week, Brigid de Rivaz, an OFSTED inspector and literacy consultant will be joining us for a day in school. She is coming in to help us update our practise on the teaching of writing in light of the new framework and the introduction of a new style of SATs writing test. We are all very much looking forward to her visit.
