I haver read a few OFSTED reports, today, which mention ‘enjoyable experiences’ and ‘inspiring learning’ at school being a cornerstone of progress at good and outstanding schools…
Today, Years 5 and 6 worked on water rockets and were firing them the FULL length of the field…we all went outside at 3pm to watch them fire the best 2 and the reaction was priceless from the whole school.
And then Foundation Stage had a wondrous session all about seaside through the ages, today. A message from FS Leader Miss Kelloway:
“Today, we were lucky to have Sam from the museum service come into school to help with our learning about sea sides in the past. She brought lots of interesting artefacts from the past. The children found these fascinating and had lots of super ideas about what they were before we found out what they were. We got to make our own Punch and Judy puppets, dressed up in Victorian clothes and played a fishing game and also sorting a range of artefacts into the old or new suitcase. We talked about lots of similarities and differences between now and the past. We looked at a real Victorian camera and took photos in true Victorian style, without smiling, as it sometimes took a long time for the photographer to take photos in the past. They look very effective!!”
What an incredible photo!
