It is a lovely school with a welcoming feel and a positive atmosphere. Much more visible leadership team. A feeling of pride in the school. As parents we feel really proud that our son comes to such a great school, which we knew was fabulous whether OFSTED told us or not! The trips that Mrs Glover & Mrs Sear have been putting together are a fantastic idea and hope they continue. I am extremely happy with Daniel's progress since starting at the Pre-School. He seems to have made a lovely group of friends and enjoys coming in every day. I can't wait to see him progress further. Senior & middle leaders know the strengths of their staff & deploy them accordingly. More tailored support for different groups of learners has been a really big & positive change. Thank you! The Headteacher has a clear vision for the school & her ambition for it to continue to make improvements is shared by her senior team & staff.

Capacity Champions!

 

Year 4 took their classroom to the beach last week to learn about capacity. They all completed four activities that involved estimating or measuring capacity:

 

smileyThe children used a litre bottle of sea water to try and estimate the capacity of other containers. 

smileyThey used measuring spoons to find the capacity of a variety of beach toys. 

smileyThey had to order eight different sized and shaped buckets according to their capacities. 

smileyThe children used measuring cylinders and jugs to measure how much sand a range of different containers could hold. 

 

The children loved learning about capacity in this way and now have a very good understanding of what a litre bottle looks like and how much a teaspoon will hold. It took lots of organising by the staff, but they all reported it was invaluable in bringing this topic to life!
