After the well needed break that Easter provides it often takes a few days for staff and pupils to get back up to speed in applying their knowledge and understanding. We have therefore spent a good proportion of time revisiting skills learnt in reading, writing and maths and applying these in real world contexts.
Pupils have been able to identify areas of personal need and staff have supported them in being confident in these. In-between, there has been a real emphasis on pupils working independently when solving maths and comprehension challenges – which we would expect in the summer term – and we have been extremely impressed with the confidence, determination and focus shown by all.
Many thanks to parents and carers for their support with half-term homework – we have had an impressive return.
