Happy New Year to you all , I hope that 2019 is a happy and healthy one for you.
We have had a very busy first week back. The staff were all delighted with how quickly the children have settled back into their learning.
This block , up until the February break, there is a focus on health and wellbeing in every class so our pupils have already been exploring different aspects.
As a staff we have worked on tracking pupil progress using the James Nottingham Quadrants and the Leuven’s Scale of Engagement – these tools help us to think deeply about progress, attainment and engagement in learning, for our pupils as individuals and to plan necessary future steps.

Miss McKay also ran a session for us looking at Making Thinking Visible techniques – approaches to learning which encourage richer thinking and deeper understanding for our learners and ourselves as teachers. If you are interested in finding out more > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQTYcZf40ag
We have a busy term ahead and a calendar and newsletters will be coming your way next week.
