This term is particularly significant for our eldest pupils. Year 6 have had SATs week as a focus for this term but also have their residential trip at Condover Hall to look forward to soon now the SATs are over. Across the school we will be celebrating, along with the nation, the momentous occasion of the Queen's 90th birthday(s). I'm sure each year group will be producing fantastic commemorative pieces on that theme. Nursery and Year One both have farm visits to look forward to which are always a highlight for the children (I'm sure the animals love it too!).
Our 'Learning to Learn' initiative has been subject to much behind-the-scenes preparation and planning and the full incarnation of what it means for us all is being disseminated across the school this half term too. We are promoting different Learning to Learn skills over the course of each half term. This term's focus is Resilience so parents can expect this word, and its associated applications to children's learning, being spoken of frequently. The other aspects that will follow in due course are: Resourcefulness, Reflectiveness and Relationships. We think these four ingredients are the cornerstones to learning to learn. Why not ask your child how they have been resilient today.
