I took the opportunity to go and see how our Primary students learn to read and write by watching a Year 2 phonics lesson. Suffice to say that I was captivated by the extraordinary engagement and enthusiasm of the children – thank you Miss Ward and all of the Year 2 phonics class for welcoming me in to your classroom.
Seeing how our students learn in the younger years can really inform our teaching further up the school and I will be sharing this experience with Secondary staff in the hope that they will be able to find some time in their busy timetables to go and see what is happening in other parts of the school. We should never underestimate what we can learn from others.
Have a great weekend!
Head of Secondary
