This week; as I am sure your children have told you, we began our cycle of end of year assessments in the primary school. As teachers we constantly use a wide variety of methods to assess your children. This formative assessment help teachers identify concepts that the children are struggling to understand, skills they are having difficulty acquiring, or learning standards they have not yet achieved so that adjustments can be made to lessons, instructional techniques, and academic support. Of course, we also use this information to challenge our students to achieve even more. This personalised approach to learning has significant contributions on both children’s attainment and progress. All children have to sit tests at some point in their school careers and part of our role in the primary school is to help children prepare for these summative assessments so they feel confident to share all they have learnt. This week and next, the children will be sitting tests in a range of areas and these results along with teacher assessments will be used to measure the progress your child has made this year. We look forward to sharing this with you in the end of year reports and parent/teacher conferences later in the term.

On Thursday, Mr James, our IT teacher and Head of Global Campus, gave an excellent presentation to the parents of children in Years 4, 5 and 6 on ‘Successful Parenting in a digital age.’ One of the key messages communicated was that all children take risks; it’s a natural part of being a child. Taking risks and challenging ourselves is how we learn. The risks our children make are very different to the risks we took as children, as Mr James phrased it our children have a different playground- a digital playground. This workshop was the first of many, in what we hope to be a partnership between school and home, in supporting and preparing both our children and you their families for the constant changes and advances in the use of technology. My thanks to Mr James and Ms Trang for leading this invaluable session.

I wish you all a restful weekend.
