On Friday in Reception we finished off Maths week by building a large robot out of lots of different materials. We had a lot of counting to do! The children answered lots of maths questions about the robot such as "How many bottles would we need for two robots?' and "What is the total of the numbers on one arm?" We had great fun moving things around and adding different parts to the robot!
Over 100 parents, carers, siblings, grandparents, aunties, uncles....oh...and governors came to Family Assembly yesterday. We saw the fabulous work the children had done throughout their Maths High Focus Week. We also were treated to a Q&A with local author Jan Hedge who helped one of our parents, Jude Jones give out World Book Day Sponsored Read Certificates.
I loved the questions asked (bearing in mind these are from children aged 4-7) which ranged from, 'Why did you want to be a writer?' to my favourite from Henry in Y1, 'What is the moral of your story?'
I really enjoyed our informal chats with parents and carers after assembly - thank you to all governors who gave up their time to be there. If you're a parent or carer reading this - you can always catch me in the yard or leave me a message in the office if you need a chat before the next Governors' Coffee Morning.
